Nice idea! Not sure Easter island, despite being politically part of Chile, belongs to 'South America'

That's like saying Hawaii, which is technically part of the USA, belongs in Oceania.

It belongs to the US, although geographically in Oceania. French Guiana belongs to a European country while in South America.

Same case with Greenland, it is owned by Denmark, A European Country, but is part of North America.

Yup, it's Polynesian. No amount of years or imperialism can change that.

On a related note, could you accept Rapa Nui or Rapanui for Easter Island, since it's the local name for it?

That's like saying Cyprus is European, when in fact it is an Asian country.

All depends what you mean by 'belong'. If you mean which country 'owns' Easter island it is Chile, if you mean which Continent is nearer to Easter Island then it depends where you measure from, if Oceania means Australia (as everyone seems to offer in jetpunk when it is said Australia is a continent not an island) then the distance is 11,084 km, whereas the distance to Chile (South America) is 3,686 km.

The "tallest Eurasian mountain" one tripped me up for ages. I kept trying to spell "Elbrus"...

What do you mean rightfully? Everest is certainly taller than Elbrus. And you understand Eurasia means Europe and Asia, not just Europe?

Same, but after a few tries I realised Everest was the right one, lol.

I did the same thing. Yes, Swilkes, I'm guessing most of us on here know what Eurasia means. For some reason I read Eurasian as European.

Didn't realize you required the "continent-related answer" to be retyped. Is that really necessary?
reply

Well, If you don't get the other clues you can still guess the continent-related one so that's why

Accidentally i wrote down Palau instead Perth (both on P) so i got all first letters in Oceania and then I tried Ayers and it worked as Uluru! That's pointless, because you're supposed to look for another name of this!

Please say no. It is so much better to learn that Arabic is a language and Arabian is the name of both a sea and a peninsula.
