ive been doing this quiz now for about 2 months - and im not going to say I done great at the start. I always thought i knew tonnes of countries but on my first attempt - only scored 72. Since then ive been doing this every few days, gradually learning a few at a time and watching my score trickle a little higher each time. When I hit the 160-170 area, i turned the timer off as i was starting to run out of time before id named what i could. Last week I finally hit 196 with timer off - and today managed to get all 196 with timor on with 0:55 seconds left!!! Seriously cant believe people on here have completed this with over half of the time left?!?!

NICE! well done. I took this for the first time just now and got 73. I'll be working on it every once in a little bit like you've done. Hope to hit 196 before november.

fast typers, and they have taken the test so many times, they have developed a system in place where they remember the countries in almost the same order nearly every time. no need to think. just type.

BTW, congratulations! Getting 100% on this test with the timer on is a rite of passage, at least in my book. It separates true Jetpunkers from the rest.

DollarBill2208, you're Level 71 !!!! I tip my hat to you, sir. You have over 16,000 points, and there are "only" 3439 quizzes that qualify for points, so you are averaging at least 4.65 points for every single quiz here. That means that you have 100% on a minimum of 2244 (ie 65%) of them.

The current top scores for the sprint versions of this quiz are One minute - 64 & 61 countries; Two minutes - 80 & 74; Three minutes - 160 & 133; Four Minutes - 196 & 155.

Ah....didn't realise you could turn the timer off! It might help.....sometimes I"m racing against the clock trying to fill in the countries of Europe.

Not a single one of my friends understands my addiction to this quiz. I do it everywhere. Please know that it gets really frustrating after a couple of drinks when I try it at the bar.You end up forgetting easy countries like Switzerland.

I finally got 100%! When I first took this quiz, I think I got somewhere in the 40% range but then I took the individual continent quizzes and actually learned where all of the countries are. I've found that when people talk about small countries, I actually know where they are on the map because of this quiz!

Looks like they added another country, as there are now 196 answers. You used to be able to get away with just typing Sao Tome, but now they want Sao Tome and Principe. This is still one of the coolest puzzles yet.

This has been fixed. We redid the type-ins to make things a little easier and more consistent and screwed that one up I guess.

So many liars on this board. It's impossible to complete this quiz in less than 14 minutes. I am at the point now where I can supply all the answers in rapid succession AND I type about 70 words per minute. One would have to type 140 wpm without any hesitation to complete this test with 5 to 8 minutes remaining on the clock, and that is highly unlikely.
Oct 2, 2014

Don't give up it is possible, the first time I succeeded I had 15 secs left, now my best time is 1:10 left. I type slowly They can't all be liars. You need a system
Oct 3, 2014

There must be something wrong with your math - I am a slow typist, and I have, in fact, completed it. I now do so consistently with 2-3 minutes left.
Oct 4, 2014

There are people who type 160 unknown words per minute. There are people who do close to 250 words per minute with known words and phrases. After a few times with this quiz, it would qualify as the latter. That would be about 4 words per second. Yes, that's fast. Just doing simple math -- assuming about 2 words per country, you have 196 countries = 400 words. So a championship typist would be able to plow through all of these countries in about 2 minutes. Leaving 10 minutes on the clock. So 8 minutes is definitely feasible. Myself, I'm around 50 words a minute unknown, and I might get to about 80 with well known words. Which leaves me with 5 minutes to plow through this test, leaving 7 minutes on the clock. Real world best for me right now is leaving 3 minutes on the clock. So not only is this test doable, but it is doable by slower people than yourself!

I took this quiz for the first time maybe a year ago. I only got roughly half. I compiled a list of the countries I wasn't familiar with and I studied their geographical location, their people, their culture. I took this quiz over and over until I knew every one. I continue to take it every month or so to make sure I don't forget or slow down. Jetpunk is like free school -- I appreciate it.

Btw guys, here's a tip: Do Europe first since its one of the easiest/do those countries that you're most familiar with/do it by regional names such as Balkans or Scandinavia/start with the less known countries then finish off the quick and easy ones/(NOT RECOMMENDED) cheat with Wikipedia or Google maps.

I mastered this over a period of about 7 days....it is possible, just be confident. I am not the fastest keyboarder, but typing in names you are familiar with makes it more and more easy to speed up. Personally, I complete each region, Caribbean, then North America, Central and South, then all the islands of Africa, Africa, then Oceania, then Asia starting with the smaller countries, Brunei, Maldives, and East Timor, Singapore, Taiwan.. Then remaining Asia, then the "-stan" countries, MIddle East, then the smaller countries in Europe - Andorra, Monaco, San Marino, Vatican, Macedonia, Montenegro, Malta, Cyprus, (sometimes Kosovo) then remaining Europe. It really helps me to group the smaller countries, because they are the easiest to miss....if you have a plan you can name them all. Good luck!!! You can do it! :)

Make a plan for how you are going to "attack" or complete the countries. The more random you are, the less likely you are going to succeed. Make note of the countries you miss, write them down, and then the next time you start, start with those previously forgotten countries. When I started I would read them off my list and type them in. Make it systematic. I know you will be successful if you remain committed...you can do it! If I can finish all countries with about 2 minutes remaining, you can too!

I love this quiz, it's the first one I play when i'm on Jetpunk but I only have one problem with it. I've noticed that there are so many exceptions if you incorrectly spell certain countries. It should be that if you can't spell a country properly then it shouldn't be accepted at all. Some people really need to learn how to spell, like c'mon people, you obviously have some sort of internet connection to play this quiz so google the bloody correct way to spell it or even use spell check do something like LEARN HOW TO SPELL.
Oct 20, 2014

Good idea, so here is Countries of the World - Correct Spelling, where you have to write the answer exactly as it appears in the answer box!

I tend to do the countries that I can do as acronyms (USA, UAE, UK, CAR, PNG) first, then continue from there. My Great Big El-ephant Has No CRitical Problems, is how I remember Central American countries. I guess there are different strategies, does anyone have any that are really good?

My fourth time in a fortnight and managed 176, although I am typing as fast as I can I run out of time before I'm out of countries. I'm Australian and it seems to be the Oceana islands that I miss out on mostly. I start in Europe, then Africa followed by north & south America then Asia and finally Oceana. I enjoy this challenge as I have to not only know the countries but improve my typing speed in the attempt.
