It's totally possible to type in all the names of the countries in that time frame. If you have them memorized, you just type until you're done. You don't have to be a fast typer.

I would like to thank and complain to jetpunk at the same time. I have lost 4 days of productive work time playing this game. It is far too addictive! However, I finally completed it and named all 196 with 30 seconds left. Maybe now I can get back to proper work. Or maybe just one more game.....

NOT ENOUGH TIME! I type like a crazy person and cannot get more than 100, no way! That must skew statistics. Plus, if we misspell a word or have a typo, there will be 4 names stacked up and they must be erased and re-typed. Depressing for us bad typists. (way back in jr high, nearly 50 yrs ago, they pulled me from typing class and made me take another semester of french, "college prep" they said, I "didn't need to type"...paying for it in the computer age)

The stats only count the first attempt. I run into the same name stack-up problem you do. All I can say for that is to learn to switch your focus from keyboard to monitor every few seconds, or learn to touch-type. And yes, my family still makes fun of the way I type - but they can't name all 196 countries ;)

Where did you go to school that there was a typing class in the 60s-70s?
Dec 25, 2014

why would the damn thing go back a page instead of a space to correct a typo? twice now, and erases entire test at the last few seconds

You must have clicked out of the text box. Perhaps to scroll the map a bit?

It also bounces many of mine repeatedly--never took republic of the congo ever nor dominican republic nor one of the guineas...bissou?
Nov 22, 2014
(46)
For purpose of this quiz, "Congo" will complete both areas for you. The Guinea you're looking for ends with "au" - Guinea Bissau

First time of completion. 2:07 left. Looked a bit shaky with 195 done and I just couldn't remember Benin. Benin is now my nemesis because it almost stumped me!

I put Benin in with the countries around it. GhanaBeninTogo....that reminds me that there's Tonga. I sort of hook things together. I have three things hooked together that are nowhere near each other for some reason KiribatiKosovoVatican. Weird.

Which way is best to complete? By continent? Trying to remember by alphabet? Or just frantically typing til you run out of time? I've tried all these and I still can't do it in 12 minutes?! I know them all, I just never have enough time. Sometimes I'll cancel the timer after about 11.50 and just keep going. I know 15 minutes wouldn't be a challenge to some people. But it would give slow typists like me a fighting chance!
Nov 25, 2014
(64)
I'd suggest doing it by continent/region. North/South America and Caribbean total 35, so I always start there, then go to Europe, across Asia, then finish with Africa. Some people do all the micronations first to make sure they don't miss them, but I just do them as part of each continent (and look at the list at the end if I'm short).
Nov 26, 2014
(36)
I also go by continents and have a set pattern going along neighbouring countries back and forth, ie Egypt-Libya-Tunisia-Algeria-Morocco-Mauritania-Mali-Niger etc etc

I agree. It would be a lot easier. Europe doesn't have as many small countries which you cant remember

I agree with the others. Do it by region. I used to start exclusively in Oceania....but now I try to start in random sectors to really know it. Still, I don't dive from place to place. I finish and area ( for the most part) and then move on.

146/196! I forgot Netherlands, Austria, Belgium, Bangladesh, Guinea, Singapore, Vatican City, and Croatia to name some of the 50 I didn't get. I DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO SPELL CZECH REPUBLIC!!!

I've asked Quizmaster before, but he may not have seen the question - would it be possible to record our best completion time? I can now finish it consistently, but would like to know what my best time was. Today was pretty good (for me) at 3:04.

Gah, I haven't done this in a few months and I missed 11. :/ 185 is still good for a 13-year old, right?
Nov 28, 2014

I don't know that this will help or not. I start from Thailand, where I live, and then Southeast Asia, Oceania, East Asia, South Asia and the rest of Asia. After that, I try Europe and Americas. I put Africa, which I considered as hardest for me, for the last so that I can have enough time to figure them out after I finish other continents.

Took me longer than a week but I mastered it eventually too. If you take the other regional quizzes (Europe, Asia, etc) that helps a lot... Oceania is still super hard, though.

Well, the world record is actually 3 mins 45 secs, and here's the quiz that proves it. People are trying hard to set a new, 3 min 30 sec, record here, and the nearest anyone has got is 191.

Wow!!! I know the whole world! With 3 minutes left, I couldn't remember Nauru, Tonga, Tuvalu, Samoa, and Fiji, but I got them all... except until the last 25 seconds (and I hope this is a good proof that I work better under pressure) one was missing. I looked in the list and I thinked... "with M or N...with M or N...with M or N..." and when only 17 seconds remained, the word came to my mind. "Nauru" was written and I completed the entire globe with 16 seconds remaining!!! So I'm happy PD: It was easier than the periodic table

New Personal Best: 4:39 left... but it could have been 5:10, aproximately... if I remembered Gambia!!! It is too small, and when I wrote Gabon, I also wrote Senegal, and Gambia just vanished... I had to look in the list to see what was the incomplete continent..... But I guess I can try again and do 5:30!

Can usually get them all in 12m now (unless I am really tired!!). Still miss the same ones and have to go back. Kuwait, for some reason. Weird.... Aiming for 10 minutes now.

Suggestions: Why does it make us waste time scrolling down to RE-CHECK the "show micro nations" box? I check it and it un-checks when I click to start the game. On my laptop, it's not visible at the same time as the box where we type answers...so I am scrolling up and down....which also often un-clicks the box we type in ...I'm retyping stuff because it did not take. It's almost a minute before I'm typing answers, even tho I set it up to begin with. Which is a problem with typos--either don't make the words beyond the typo disappear, or else count them. One typo and I could end up with from 6 to 12 countries typed before I realize they aren't taking. Making them disappear and not be counted? Might as well quit the game there and then because it can take a minute or 2 just to figure out where the typo was (it's under the white, out of the box, gone forever). I have to look to the map... Since I type with one finger of my left hand, I have to watch the keyboard, not the screen.

You know, 10, and I have been to some of these countries. France, Germany, United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, India, Sri Lanka, Canada, Switzerland, and I live in the US. Plus my parents are both foreign. My mom is from Sri Lanka and my dad is from Spain. My dad has been to SOUTH Korea and Egypt. My mom studied in Thailand too. Not to brag about it, but the Morse family just travels. I will admit I have to get my mom to help me play this awesome game.... but most of the time I do it by myself.
