I can do them all, but i have to copy paste in "São Tomé and Príncipe" every time because its impossible to write it with my keyboard.. Is there any other way to write it? Like you can write ivory coast instead of cote d'ivoire

You can just type Sao Tome, that's all I do and ivory coast works too, it's only annoying when I can't remember that I've missed it because it begins with a C!

I start in Europe with all the Balkan countries then bunch micro nations and groups such as Czech Switz Neth,Lux, Liech etc moving across to the middle East and Asia then Oceania ,Africa doing all the small nations first. Then over to North America,Central America,South America and finally all the Caribbean nations. I type very slowly but can just manage with a few seconds to spare. You can make any system you like but I never have enough time to check the lists so I need to be methodical. Happy New Year

You should add West Sahara - it's recognised by 51 UN countries, while Taiwan is recognised by only 21 UN countries.

How about making the world map BIGGER so that it's easier to see the small countries, city-states, and island nations. Also, is this really a test of your knowledge of the countries?? Only the speediest of typists, with the smallest of fingers, can get through all of the countries in 12 minutes. How about 15 minutes???
Jan 5, 2015

Twelve minutes is a good challenge. You don't have to be a super fast typer to get them all in twelve minutes, you just have to know your geography and, well, know how to type.

Highest score so far is 169... nearly there and always forget the same countries. This time though, the map did not show at all, just a blank square. Decided to try and complete anyway from memory without any borders to remind me. Managed to fill in 146 countries, so pretty chuffed about that. I drew the world (well 74% of it!)

Will people stop saying things like 'I'm only 2 years 5 months and I got 195... missed russia'. It's really annoying. I'm only 13 and I get 196/196 every time, and I don't boast... *irony* *irony*

This really is an awesome quiz ... would just like to add my voice to those requesting that micro nations box is ticked from beginning and then to untick it as the option. It wastes time scrolling down to tick it then back up to type etc. Also some more leeway on typos if possible. But altogether fab!

After like a 100 goes, I've done it with a few seconds to spare. It's interesting the countries that aren't recognised. For example Vatican and Taiwan which aren't in the UN are there. But countries like Western Sahara and Palestine aren't there but they are recognised by 130+ countries. Also maybe I'm wrong here but I thought there was two Congos. Demorcatic Republic of Congo and just 'Congo'. No?

Love this quiz. However, each time I noticed that one piece of South America always ends up yellow at the end and there is no country listed for it. I looked at a world map and noticed that there is a country called French Guiana, but it is not listed in the quiz.

After finally mastering this and completing it many times, I found a way to make it go easier. I picture the countries, by area, in groups of three most of the time. For example... Brazil, Bolivia, Argentina... Peru, Ecuador, Chile... Suriname, Guyana, Venezuela... then there is Uruguay & Paraguay (group of two). For Europe - Spain, Portugal, France... UK, Ireland, Iceland... Germany, Denmark, Netherlands... Finland, Sweden, Norway... Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania... Slovenia, Slovakia, Czech Republic... Russia, Belarus, Ukraine.... Bulgaria, Romania, Moldova... Italy, Vatican, San Marino... Serbia, Macedonia, Greece...and so on. For Africa - Niger, Nigeria, Algeria... Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania...Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi... Somalia, Djibouti, Eritrea... South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho... Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Equatorial Guinea... and so on. For the Caribbean I go mostly in alphabetical order as well. Antigua, Bahamas, Barbados... etc. Great quiz, thank you!!!
Jan 15, 2015

I usually do them in order.. start with a side and look briefly at what the next one is while typing the first.. say Mexico, Belize, Guatemala.... til I get to Panama, then I start with Columbia and move to Venezuela, and on til I get to Chile/argentina then move my way back up til I am done..

Jan 17, 2015
(17)
I've played this maybe 15 times, but I get a few wrong ALL THE TIME!!! How can you not forget any of them? Is there some kind of trick to not forgetting any? How many times do you have to do this to get them all?
Jan 16, 2015

I got all 196 with 3:25 left, and I think it really helps to do it by location, i.e. picking a country on the map and naming it, then moving on to its neighbor, etc., if you aren't doing that already, rather than just naming the countries as they pop into your mind. It helps me not to forget any (although I always get East Timor last). It took me about 5 or 6 tries to get all the countries right.
Jan 22, 2015

I don't know how to type but have managed to do it with 1.10 left on the clock. You can't make many typos but you do get a chance to briefly scan the map. I use this as an early morning way to get my brain in gear.....bit like taking the brain for a jog.This morning I got them with .02 left on the clock,New Zealand was the last one which I just remembered in time.

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.
