Here’s Thursday’s Puzzability game:

This Week’s Game — January 18-22
Asia Fantasia
We’re working on eastern time this week. For each day, we’ll give a three-by-three letter grid in which we’ve hidden the name of a major city in Asia, followed by its country, with a total of 11 or more letters. To find it, start at any letter and move from letter to letter by traveling to any adjacent letter—across, up and down, or diagonally. You may come back to a letter you’ve used previously, but may not stay in the same spot twice in a row. You will not always need all nine letters in the grid.
Baghdad, Iraq
What to Submit:
Submit the city and country (as “Baghdad, Iraq” in the example) for your answer.
Thursday, January 21
