My record now stands at around 7:15 or so... pretty hard to break it when it gets up to a certain point.

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.

If you get stuck on naming any more countries,look on the map for any white countries.Then,as long as you can name countries from their position on the map,you will be able to get a higher score ;)

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 ?

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.
Jul 23, 2014
(14)
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

One thing that is definitely true about this site, is that the QM is VERY consistent with countries.

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!

Anybody else get a letdown feeling when you achieve 196, like, Oh ! It's over. That may sound strange but it happens to me every time------No more worlds to conquer.

You can stop the timer from the very top right. (Unfortunately, you cannot then restart the timer as the quiz continues.)

Comparisons are skewed because a lot of people re-take it progressively getting better, or getting 100% but trying to get better times.

it took me a while to get my numbers up but now I'm stuck at 185 because I can't type fast enough, and make too many typing errors. and I never remember Nauru

i can only get 141, not because I don't know the countries, for some reason I will forget singapore ALL the time, and others I'll remember to write sometimes and sometimes not. Also, can't remember sometimes exactly where the countries are
Aug 1, 2014

sometimes I type somewhere in and it disappears but doesnt register. Today it was Italy, which I had to type in twice, and Haiti. Why does this happen?

Yup, ThomasPDunn is right. Not bragging here, just letting you know it can be done. Got all with 3:29 remaining and am just an average typist. BUT.....getting to this point took a long time and a LOT of practice. Keep trying & don't forget to take advantage of shortcuts (USA, DRC, UAE, etc.)!

The Oceanic Micro Nations are, many of them, in the lowest of percentages for this quiz. They are visible when one clicks on the Micro Nations block in the lower left of the display. And they can be thought of and viewed as a string running from right to left, i.e. from West to East: Tonga, Samoa, Tuvalu, Nauru, Palau, Brunei, Singapore, Maldives, Comoros, Sao Tome.

I love this quiz and am now trying to improve my time. There is still one thing that irks the OCD in me. That little bit of yellow left for French Guyana. Surely it should turn green with France?
Aug 15, 2014
eric29cocoanuts
(62)
I agree about French Guiana. The same goes for Greenland, Puerto Rico and New Caledonia. Wish they'd turn green too. The map seems unfinished otherwise and my OCD says that's just wrong!

Aug 19, 2014

92% or 181. Got every European, Asian and South American Country and only missed 2 from North America. Oceania is the reason that I didn't get more. And the time limit. The time limit is evil
