Actually, I think the first time I took this quiz (several years ago), I scored exactly 137. With practice and dedication, I'm sure you can get them all!

Not a territory, but a constituent country within the Kingdom of Denmark. The Kingdom contains 3 countries: the Country of Denmark (ie the bit on Europe's mainland, bordering Germany), Faroe Islands, and Greenland. At least accept Greenland as a type-in?

Apr 21, 2017

You answered your own request there. The Kingdom of Denmark is technically what is being guessed when you type in Denmark, not the Country of Denmark. Much the same way 'French Guiana' is by no means a type-in for France.

The first time I tried this quiz, I flunked it with 64%. I thought I knew something about the world, but was very humbled. It's very addictive, and like an earlier contributor said, it takes dedication and hard work. Someone finished the quiz in fewer than 5 minutes (like 10+ minutes remaining), and I thought, "How can they do that!" Well, hard work really does pay off. My best score is 9:16 remaining, but those typing skills can get in the way! Maybe one day I'll make it to the 10 minute remaining mark, just have to keep trying. We just have to look at the forward progress, no?

I hate when people are like "I'm only 12 and got 196," you don't have to share in such a cocky way and it's not really a massive deal, all you did is show you have an OK memory. I spent 2 weeks here and I don't want to come in here bragging about my age, it's not a competition, it's for fun. :)

Thank you for that JaxonM. Seriously, I understand if a 7 or 8 year old wants to share that but really, a twelve or thirteen year old doesn't need to. Kids that age should already know this stuff.

Tip for memorising all of these for those of you who are struggling: Do the individual continent quizzes elsewhere on this site. They're a lot smaller-scale and less intimidating, concentrate on perfecting them one at a time and once you're confident in all five try this quiz by working your way through continent-by-continent. It's a heck of a lot more manageable that way :)

I believe it took me around 10 tries and lots of practice with the individual regions over the span of 3 days to finally get 100%! I finished with 3:14 left, the last country being Tuvalu. I would highly recommend mastering individual regions, it makes it much easier. Good luck!
