Why is Greenland greyed out
Jun 9, 2015
(33)
It is a country not. Denmark owns it.
Jun 12, 2015
(60)
I think it is a country! Greenland left the European Union while Denmark remained within it, which (in my book) makes it independent.
Jul 24, 2015
(40)
Greenland is only partly autonomous. Denmark still has control over some internal functions as well as Greenland's foreign policy. Greenland is not an independent country, but a semi-autonomous administrative division of Denmark.
Jul 27, 2015
(60)
Well, Greenland only operates its own policing, judicial system, company law, accounting, and auditing, mineral resource activities, aviation, law of legal capacity, family law and succession law, aliens and border controls, working environment, financial regulation and supervision, European Union membership decision-making as well as its own parliament, flag, national anthem... In other words, what real actual countries do.

How about taking "spelling 101"? Then move on to "grammar 101". And if they offer it, "punctuation 101". :-)

There's not enough time! I got 183/196. I had to go back and do ones again that I spelt wrong but still. If there were 5 extra minutes i probably would've done it. Good quiz though

Any chance of accepting "DPRK" for North Korea?
Jun 14, 2015
(14)
I find that the best way for me to do it is as follows: North/central/south america from north to south, then carribean, then europe, then asia west to east, then the island nations in both oceania and the indian ocean, then to africa.
Jun 15, 2015

You should accept dprk for North Korea

I've made this comment on other quizzes, but it's valid here. Why is Cyprus listed as Asia when it is part of the EU and its currency is the euro. Sorry if this point has been made before.
Jun 19, 2015
einahpetsx
(43)
currency is a poor reason to accept a country as part of another continent. the Philippines uses pesos...are they part of North America because mexico uses pesos? or is mexico part of asia?
Jun 19, 2015
beccimoo
(43)
You are presumably joking. Cyprus use the European currency (euro), and they are a member of the EU (the European Union). And they are not thousands of miles away from the rest of the countries that use the currency and are members of that Union.

Politically it's considered to be in Europe; geographically it's considered to be in Asia. I think they're correct by putting it in Asia, as it's tectonically the same as Turkey, which happens to be more geographically Asian too.
Jun 23, 2015

(29)
They also want to get Georgia into the EU. Switzerland isn't in the EU.
Jul 14, 2015
(60)
Browsing the web, Cyprus seems to have as many mentions as a European country as it does an Asian one. One of those grey areas in geography; it's what happens when you try to allocate every country to a continent even when there's no obvious fit.

I love this quiz. Time-saving abbreviations that work: USA, UK, UAE, CAR (Central African Republic), PNG (Papua New Guinea), Congo (both countries). Also, "St" for "Saint" (Kitts, Lucia, Vincent).

Yes! I have done this one repeatedly and have finally completed it with 43 seconds to spare. On my first go I only got around 130 so this has been a really good educational tool. Although I suspect I'll have to do it regularly if I want to retain the information long term

I must have tried this at least 50 times over the last year or two and cant get above 164. I miss the same ones every time. Need to learn to start with those. I will complete this eventually.

Mastered this in about four days. My method is to start with the Caribbean, then do Oceania, then do all the other micro countries and islands. Once only the visible landlocked countries are left, it's much easier.

I did this for about 1 month everyday at work. Here are my best times. This is how long it took me to finish: 6:54, 7:01, 7:21, 7:23, 8:08, 8:09, 8:16, 8:17, 8:25, 8:26, 8:34, 8:50, 8:57 So my best was all countries in 6:54 seconds! To be honest... I nail out the tough areas (The stans, The guineas, The little european countries, The 4 soviet satellite states in asia, the Yugoslavian pandemonium, The 3 B's [bahrain, brunei and bhutan] and lastly the African M countries). After all of these areas... The rest of the world I can now do in order and people at my work are amazed :) I think it's easy! This is an awesome quiz and I think has not only helped me keep my mind sharp in a fun way, but has also helped me learn the world! Also, every day I do the quiz I wikipedia one country I don't know much about and read up about that country and learn! Cool Beans and Good Luck to all!

Jul 5, 2015

Remember them in chunks so when you remember one it will spark others and you'll get more. I do stuff like: Fiji,Samoa,Tonga Nauru,Palau Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan Kazakhstan,Uzbekistan,Kyrgyzstan,Tajikistan,Turkmenistan,Afghanistan,Pakistan (That one's long but at least they all end in -stan). Azerbaijan,Armenia,Georgia Czech Republic,Slovakia,Slovenia Albania,Bulgaria,Lithuania,Latvia,Estonia Andorra,Monaco,Malta,Luxembourg,Liechtenstein,San Marino,Vatican City (Those are all the micro-nation dots in Europe) St Kitts and Nevis,St Lucia,St Vincent and the Grenadines Guatemala,Grenada Dominica,Dominican Republic Gabon,Gambia Guinea, Guinea-Bissau,Equatorial Guinea Hope this helps! (The strategy, not all the example answers I just generously gave you.
Jul 7, 2015
(46)
That is one way, but it doesn't help if you are wanting to know where the countries are in relation to the other countries. I start in slices and work left to right in a continent eg. UK, Ireland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Russia, Belarus, Moldova, Ukraine ....... then back to Portugal, Spain, Andorra, France, Monaco, Luxembourg, Belgium, Netherlands, Denmark, Germany Poland ....... back then to Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Austria, Czech Republic, Slovakia ......... then Italy, Vatican ........ etc etc ........ finish off one continent then on to Asia, Oceana, N.America, S.America. Caribbean, Africa ...... slice by slice.

3:47 left - My best time yet! I seem to get them down to 3 or 4 left, then I have a total blank. Just can't remember those last few. Seem to be different ones every time. So I spend the last 2 minutes desperately trying to remember, and usually I just can't come up with them. Love this quiz! Such a geek ....

My strategy; as I can confidently name all of Europe, Oceania and the Americas. First I tackle Africa, as I know there are 54 countries there, so once I hit 54 I then go round Oceania, N&S America and Europe, finishing with Asia knowing that the only countries left out of the 196 are Asian. Tend to go round geographically within continents too so I don't miss any out. Rarely look at the map, just focus on the number /196 to see where I'm up to. My best time so far is 5.42 minutes remaining. But admittedly this now just turns into a fast typing/ memory test. My Dad could probably name near enough all of them, given the time, but in a 12 minute time frame for someone who one finger types, he's no chance!
