AHHHH! Three times I've played this and I still haven't done it. 192 is my best and for some reason I keep forgetting Lebanon, never answered it yet. Maybe next time.

I think it should get a dot on the map, it's barely visible, like East Timor which I keep on forgetting every time..

On my computer, Lebenon and Isreal are both completely invisible. You just have to remember to type them in.

I've played this countless times and the highest I've gotten is 191. I must be a slow typist!

Superb quiz, I play it every time I find myself with 10 mins to spare!!! Always get 196 now, 3:26 left on laptop / 1:10 to spare on iPad / 0:25 to spare on iPhone!!! Due to a computer glitch I just got a new and very challenging slant on this quiz - a blank page and the countries appearing as I enter them!!! Much harder!! I missed India!!! Thought the map looked odd!! Quizmaster - you might want to make that version for nerds like me - the challenge being to remember all the countries by their absence on the map, rather than changing their colour. I only got 171!!!

Hats off to you if you truly got all 196 countries without looking at anything.

Suggestion: add sound when a name is accepted. This will allow us to realize we made a typo or are not spelling something well enough.

Also, "congo" probably should not give us credit for both congos.

Highly addictive. My first go I think I missed about thirty countries, but now with some practice I have got my time down to 4:22 remaining, so I'm feeling very smug. Practice definitely pays off! Any chance of turning Kuwait, Gambia, Djibouti, Lebanon, Israel, East Timor, Armenia and Moldova into micro-countries? I always forget those ones!

I hear you. It may be my small screen, but Gambia is invisible. I just remember it is a river inside Senegal and tie the two together in my head.

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

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.

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.

I am not bragging when I say that at 73 I can finish this quiz in 9 minutes flat--and at the same time, I cannot remember the first names of people I know well, or names of people in the news I want to refer to. Could these be stored in a different part of the brain ?
