Why the hell can all those people got over 100? I'm from Hong Kong, and my high score is just 90. No perfect for ALL continents. It's just crazy that all those people can get over 100.

108, finally over 100! xD But this beats or equal only 31.1% of test takers :( Very good in Asia, Western Europe, Oceania, N/S America. OK in Africa Bad in Central America (Carrabian areas) and Eastern Europe Perfect in none of the continents

People are only going to post a comment when they get a high score. Trust me: many, many, many people got under 100. They just didn't post it.

Very few, if any, people would get 100% first, second, or even tenth tries. 196 countries is a lot to know, and people won't be up to date with all the modern names and countries, as well as being under the impression that some do belong here when they are disputed, or territories of other countries (so many islands!). The other factor - and it's a big one - is the time limit. It's quite short, and requires accurate, fairly speedy typing to come within. I figure beating it by 1 second is as good as beating it by 5 minutes. People tend to post when they get good at it, is all. Keep practicing, and it starts to flow in memory. You'll find you just know there are four "B" countries in Africa. I've found I've evolved a pattern to catch the ones I've tended to miss (once I learned them all - I'm looking at you Lebanon, Maldives, and Sao Tome). I like watching the map turn green, there's something oddly satisfying about it.

I like working from one country to the next, going from one end of the continent to the other. Randomly entering names would really throw me off and eat into my time. Doing that also helps since they you have to memorize each country by its location and not just remember a long list of names. There's another quiz where it is just a list. It's much more difficult, but I try to visualize the map and use the same technique, moving from one to another so as not to miss any and have to struggle to figure out which once I'm down to a few. I did manage to get all the countries on my second attempt, but I've always had a fondness for maps and geography and been good at memorizing those things. Now it's a challenge getting through as fast as possible without making spelling mistakes and having to backspace all the time. Got it down to 5:24 remaining and still trying for better. Practice makes perfect

Also, it's quite addictive trying to get that score up, isn't it? I found looking at maps with the countries labelled helped a lot. Good luck :)

Needs more dots for small nations, especially Qatar, which is almost invisible since the dot for Bahrain almost completely obscures it.

Done it! Exactly 2:00 on the clcok. I just did this an hour ago, cheered and jumped around the room... and then realised I wasn't logged in! So now I've done it properly. My record for remembering the Maldives: 6% - indicates also how many times I've tried this quiz! I do the 'M's of Europe, in Africa the 'M's (Mali and Malawi, Mauritius and Mauritania) and the 'G's (Gambia, Gabon, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau and Equatorial Guinea).

I am addicted to this quiz. I will do it just to unwind aftter I've been working around the house or grading papers (I teach international relations courses online for undergrads). My best time was 7:50something. Just finished with 7:48 left. Trying to break the 4 minute mark and have 8:00 left on the clock. I type fast. :)

Suggest you make groups, "tying" small countries to big ones, then never think of the big ones without thinking of their satellites. e.g.: Ethiopia & Djibouti......Iraq & Kuwait, etc.

Very Pleased with my self after learning about this awesome quiz site when I started College in 2012 and have probably done this particular quiz about 12 times since then and this time I finally did it. I suggest learning where all the countries in the world are as then there is a mental checklist in your head.

It doesn't make sense that some countries make your map but Palestine doesn't. Come on sort it out, they declared independence 26 years ago! "Other" popular quiz sites don't have a problem including Palestine on their world maps.

palestine is not technically a country do to lack of recognation. here is a link to the countries that recognize it (in green) and the ones that don't (in gray) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Palestine_recognition_only.svg

After many weeks and attempts - 100% with 48 seconds to spare! This quiz is responsible for making me a lot more interested in geography than I used to be, after I could only get about 60 or so when I first did it. Next step: being able to place them all on a map, and then - capital cities!
