There’s a list of clues over here, that includes the MTV VILLAINS category. They also had a GEOGRAPHER’S DICTIONARY category:

$200: The “Great Dismal” & the “Big Cypress” are both examples of this low-lying type of wetland with a 5-letter name

$400: The Ganges River has the world’s largest of these wide plains created by diverging branches of a river’s mouth

$600: The structures of accumulated skeletal deposits have been called Earth’s most complex aquatic ecosystems

$800: Intermontane means between mountains, like the Great Basin between the Rockies and this range

$1000: Larger bodies of land are connected by this narrow strip of land, like Panama’s

That was the first time that category reemerged since Julia Collins’ 5th game on 4/23/2014:

$200: 5-letter name for an area of land ruled by a duke

$400: The main administrative municipality in a U.S. county

$600: To a geographer a small waterfall is a cascade & a large one is this “CA” word

$800: “Oceanic” term for the coastal states between New England & the South, like Delaware & Maryland

$1000: A small British military possession in Cyprus, Akrotiri, is an example of this— an area belonging to one nation inside another, from the French for “to enclose”
