Excelent game it is! Fourth time I take it, it only took me 11 minutes to complete it.

100%!!!! 3 minutes and 12 seconds to spare!!! I feel so relieved. The list below really helps. I always forget Kiribati, but when I list the letters and get to K, I immediately remember that I've left out Kiribati.

Great quiz! I have tried it many times, but never finished it until tonight. I suck at typing, my biggest problem with finishing this and I always thought it should be 15 minutes, not 12. But tonight I got it with 32 seconds remaining!

If there was one change I'd love to see, it would be to have French Guiana & New Caledonia turn green once you get France, and Puerto Rico turn green once you get the United States. The map looks so unfinished with those three little yellow bits remaining. Quizmaster???

Yeah, baby, I nalied you! After a billions tries, true. I was used to another quiz of matching flags to country's names and nowdaywa that has become quite easy for me, then I moved to this one. What a hard time!! But I got it with 54 seconds to go. Loved the quiz.

Taken this test many times and only just now noticed that there's an option to show dots on the map for all the micro-nations! Wish I'd noticed that earlier.

I'm almost typing fast enough with my one finger typing to finish (the secret seems to be never ever making a single typo), but guess what? Twice tonight it's telling me I never typed the last two or three countries that I just finished--AND it erased--so it accepted them, no typos. I can barely get this close to the end to the end, and it bounced 2 this time! I had just 6 to go, not 8... 12 minutes or whatever is ridiculous enough. And now even less? Masochistic. Seriously, is my connection doing this?

Can anybody do it without looking at the map or country list? I got 184/196 and had to peek a couple times.

I found I really sucked if I couldn't see the map. It's kind of surprising because I didn't really think I knew where a lot of the smaller distant (from me) countries were, but obviously I must rely on knowing where they are on the map so I can think of the missing nations! Couldn't get anywhere near being finished in time.

I have been moving the browser window down so I cannot see the map. I have only been able to get up to 194 without looking. Some omissions on different attempts: georgia/armenia/azerbaijan, peru/belize, micronesia/east timor, mauritius/mauritania.

Where do you guys think the best place to start is? Does anybody else start with the country they are from, e.g., I'm from Canada so I start there and work my way down. Usually do Africa after b/c it's a little trickier for me.

I start with Oceania, because it's the most difficult for me. Then I work west hitting Asia, then Europe, then Africa, then North & South America.

I start from Oceania, though Asia, Europe and the top of Africa, north and south America. I do the rest of Africa and central America last, probably because I don't know as many from those areas.

I do North America, South America, Africa, what I know of Europe and Asia, and then Oceania. Then I work from there

Not really a shortcut, but there are a few that I always do together, even though geographically they're nowhere near each other. I find it keeps me from forgetting, and also helps my speed. Tonga & Togo Mali & Malawi Maldives & Moldova Comoros & Cameroon Mauritius & Mauritania Libya & Liberia All the Guineas The Saints (Kitts, Nevis & Lucia) The U's (Palau, Nauru, Tuvalu, Vanatu) The Stans and their sister Jan (Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgystan, Azerbaijan)

After Reading many comments I feel like an idiot but I can't get past 80 countries. Spelling is a big problem for me & also memory is terrible so after test is done I look at answer & see I knew many of the others just couldn't remember. So this Quiz is not only for fast typing as some have said but is also for memory & also for spelling. It is a great quiz- I try once a day & get better each time. Very useful tool for learning as well as its presented in a game type of set up. Thank you for whoever posted the Test. I teaching me a lot

Not everyone types "Congo". If you enter "DR Congo", you'll only get the one.

I'm a 'stupid American' hahaha, and we never really learned much geography (especially world geography) in school. I'm loving this! I get better every time, and made it to 119 this time. I also love the 'which country is this' ones. Sadly, I'm terrible at the middle east (which you would think I'd be good at since we're so keen on invading it), and Africa. But I'm still working!

Good quiz! I got a ways to go (still only 117/197), but it is obviously about speed typing rather than pure spatial and geographical knowledge. I'd love to see a Geography quiz where you actually had to FILL IN A BLANK MAP with ALL 197 nation names with some more leniency on time.

Quizmaster - please consider adding a few more dots for very small countries. At this scale, there are a handful that are all but impossible to see; e.g., East Timor, Kosovo, and Montenegro - and to a somewhat lesser extent, Macedonia, Kuwait, and Lebanon.
