I love this quiz! It is quite a challenge to type so fast. You can end up with a string of countries if you don't stop to look, but if you stop to look, you may not finish. I think that 2-3 minutes should be added to the time allowance.

Finally! 100% with 1:02 left. It took me for ever to cross the 96% mark. I always left off a few that I knew but ran out of time. My typing accuracy has been in the dumper lately.

I am totally hooked on the jetpunk map quizzes and am relieved to see that I have good company! Am up to 191 countries after almost a week of trying. It is Kenya and those SE Asian island nations that get me every darn time.
Jan 27, 2015
(42)
A good way I find for the SEAsia is alphabetical usually in pairs eg. Australia-Fiji-Kiribati- Marshall islands/ Micronesia - Nauru/ New Zealand- PNG/ Palau - Solomon Islands/ Samoa - Tonga/ Tuvalu - Vanuatu

To The QUIZMASTER: In the "Countries of Europe" quiz you give 5 minutes to name 45 countries. In the "Countries of Africa" you give 6 minutes to name 48 countries. That's 11 minutes to name a total of 93 countries. Yet you give only 12 minutes to name a total of 196 Countries of the World - more than twice the number. One extra minute to name another 103 countries?? This is neither logical nor reasonable. Admittedly, I only needed a total of 7 minutes to complete the first two quizzes. The thing is, I know ALL of the countries of the world, but I am not an accomplished speed typist. I'm sure I'm not the only one. How about it QUIZMASTER??? How about an extra 2 minutes to name all 196 countries?
Feb 2, 2015

You know, good comment. I actually am a very good typist but i do NOT know all the countries of the world. 12 minutes leaves me with about 3 minutes left.
Feb 9, 2015

I know every country and capital by heart, but still have not typed them in the time permitted. These are typing speed tests, not memory tests. There is a fast typist trying to convince himself he knows more than others. But he doesn't, he would just make a better secretary.

100% with 7:05 left! I just started typing really fast and got all of them. I've practiced so much it has become second nature now. I have done this quiz about 10 to 15 times.

100%!!!! 3 minutes and 12 seconds to spare!!! I feel so relieved. The list below really helps. I always forget Kiribati, but when I list the letters and get to K, I immediately remember that I've left out Kiribati.

Great quiz! I have tried it many times, but never finished it until tonight. I suck at typing, my biggest problem with finishing this and I always thought it should be 15 minutes, not 12. But tonight I got it with 32 seconds remaining!

If there was one change I'd love to see, it would be to have French Guiana & New Caledonia turn green once you get France, and Puerto Rico turn green once you get the United States. The map looks so unfinished with those three little yellow bits remaining. Quizmaster???

Taken this test many times and only just now noticed that there's an option to show dots on the map for all the micro-nations! Wish I'd noticed that earlier.

if i write congo i get both countries, why not the same for the guineas? at least the african ones? i'd never heard of equatorial guinea, and it's really hard to spell.

I'm almost typing fast enough with my one finger typing to finish (the secret seems to be never ever making a single typo), but guess what? Twice tonight it's telling me I never typed the last two or three countries that I just finished--AND it erased--so it accepted them, no typos. I can barely get this close to the end to the end, and it bounced 2 this time! I had just 6 to go, not 8... 12 minutes or whatever is ridiculous enough. And now even less? Masochistic. Seriously, is my connection doing this?

I found I really sucked if I couldn't see the map. It's kind of surprising because I didn't really think I knew where a lot of the smaller distant (from me) countries were, but obviously I must rely on knowing where they are on the map so I can think of the missing nations! Couldn't get anywhere near being finished in time.

Where do you guys think the best place to start is? Does anybody else start with the country they are from, e.g., I'm from Canada so I start there and work my way down. Usually do Africa after b/c it's a little trickier for me.
