Not really - this game is supposed to be fairly easy.

I knew the Ohio River caught fire and I knew that Cleveland was local to you.

Could have been Detroit...

For our next challenge... this is the oldest English-founded city in North America (mainland - excluding Carribean).

Jamestown, .... Virginia (I'm actually not 100% sure on the state but, did it really matter in the 1600s?

St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada?

Oh crap. I just read the rules. I never would have gotten this (if it's actually right) based on the honor system.

Can I use google/wikipedia to find facts about the city? Or should I just come up with interesting information based on what I know?

Sure, looking up a city to find good clues is fine.

Just that one is supposed to be able to 'guess the city' from the clues without using Google/search engines.

Perfectly acceptable under our "24 hour rule". That means that if someone who's turn it is doesn't post a new challenge for any Forum Game within 24 hours, others may step in an offer a new one.

I'll venture Cologne as my guess. Founded as a Roman fortress at an important frontier river crossing.
