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.

5:24 remaining! New personal record. I love this quiz. First time around I couldn't figure out two of the island nations, and spelling of two in Asia, but those were quickly learned.

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.
Aug 1, 2014

But if I remember right, the stats only record a user's first attempt at taking the quiz.

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?

East Timor, you are my nemesis. One day I will remember you exist. One day.

East Timor, Eretria, and Comoros were three countries I had never heard of until taking this quiz. You'll get it...

I've been getting around 190 *without looking* with a few minutes left. I always forget something random -- this time I got the whole gulf except for Saudi Arabia (whooops!) and also forgot Liberia, Malawi, and one of the Pacific Islands.

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.)!
Aug 16, 2014

Yes it took me a while but now I regularly do them all with six minutes or so left. Obviously a bit of typing speed helps, but also I've found that this quiz is great typing practice!

7:10 remaining this time! I wish I could kick the addiction to this quiz...
Aug 14, 2014

Guess it's the law of diminishing returns..managed with 7:11 left. I wonder if it's possible to push it up to 8 minutes....

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!

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

Reading comments is almost as amusing as playing the trivia! When people point out their age or nationality over their eager of knowledge is intriguing. People rarely admit that they only post comments bragging about their tremendous accomplishments and intelligence after trying the quizzes over and over again or cheating, copying the answers from a wiki page. I have buit some quizzes of my own and we should humbly revere the guys who dedicatedly spend their time building these quizzes. Sure there are tricky issues; that's why they're so defying! If I am to do as most users, I should say I'm portuguese, I try most of the quizzes in English, Spanish and French, I master the ones in my language and being just a poor unemployed guy I've only travelled abroad 3 times and to nearby countries! :D Keep up the good work!

I love doing this quiz - when I first started I got a terrible score but improved after I studied some of the countries I didn't know much about then, as others suggest, start with your nemesis (Grenada for me) and go on from there. Leave the ones you know best til last. Now I self impose a month's ban on doing it and come back to see what the memory banks hold... have fun!

I am 14 years old and been studying where all the countries were since I was in 6th grade. I took this quiz the first time yesterday and got 95 and thought that that was an amazing score for someone my age until I saw that the average was 120. I took the quiz again today and got 121 and then the average was now 128. I hope I can get better and better at this quiz to be above average:)
