In this geographical game of Snap, you match various things into pairs. You have the choice of matching countries, capitals, country flags and country shapes to each other, in any combination you wish.

There are 3 different possible board sizes, each including progressively harder flags, shapes or capitals. How fast can you match them all correctly and clear the board?

To play, simply select all the categories you wish to include in your game, and then hit the green button. You will then be presented with pairs of tiles which need to be matched together.

Think you've mastered this? Perhaps try some of JetPunk's Country Flag Quizzes or Country Shape Quizzes!

Select Categories to Include:
Countries
Capital Cities
Country Flags
Country Shapes
Select Board Size:

Note: this minigame uses Countries, Capitals, Flags and Shapes as presented here on JetPunk. Specific choices are standard across JetPunk and won't be changed just for this minigame.

This was a bug in the way we calculated times, unfortunately this has meant we had to reset the scores. Sorry for this (see the sticky post)
+2
Level 74
Oct 27, 2020
The bug seems to be that if your computer was lagging, it would register time very slowly. I got "super fast" times that actually were much longer because my computer was lagging yesterday.
+3
Level 68
Oct 27, 2020
Yep, basically we added 100ms onto your time every 100ms. However if you computer was lagging, then the "waiting" period of 100ms could be extended, meaning when the function adds 100ms the time passed was likely different to that. To fix this, we now calculate the actual time passed every 100ms, so even if your computer lags, the time shown will always be accurate!

Yes!
+2
Level 68
Oct 26, 2020
Yes, this idea was suggested to me already and will likely happen at some point in the future. It would need a reorganisation of the mode selector though, as simply adding one new option (e.g. capitals) would add possibly 6 new game modes, which would make the list very cluttered
+2
Level 61
Oct 26, 2020
True. I think a checkbox list might work, so if you want capitals and shapes, you could tick those two off. Just an idea, though.

Level 75
Oct 26, 2020
There's a good way to remember which is which.

Ireland, also known as the Emerald Isle, so green goes first.

Ivory Coast (or Côte d'Ivoire) is close to the equator, where it is hot. Hotter colours are mainly red and orange, so orange goes first.

Then after the orange/green, it is white, then the other colour (orange or white.)

yeah that's a way to remember it, but I found a mistake at the end, the colors are orange and green, not orange and white

Oh I wasn't talking about anyone playing unfair. My brain and fingers are simply not fast enough to go quicker than certain times. Even now I will only make it on the leaderboards when few people have played :D

Level 68
Oct 26, 2020
It is with great sadness that, after 24 hours of being live, we have had to reset the stats for Snap. It came to our attention that the timing system we were using was very easily manipulated, and not at all accurate on slower devices, which meant all scores achieved so far were not accurate on their time. Some even had scores as low as 0.8 seconds! (This would have permanently affected all leaderboards without a reset). We expect this to be a one-time issue.

We have now fixed this bug, and we apologise for all the scores being lost. We hope you continue to enjoy Geography Snap - now with accurate timing and complete fairness!

We're aware of some issues with clicks not being registered on mobile, we're investigatingnwhy this might be happening because from my end I can replicate the issue but have not yet found why it's happening. Once I've fixed it I'll reply here to see if it's fixed for other as well.

The blue writing for capital cities, if you want to differentiate it from the countries, is woefully inadequate. Either do white text on a black background, or change the text to bold and red (or something similar). Having it just blue makes the text look like a hyperlink, which almost everyone has trained themselves to ignore by 2021. If there is meant to be a difference, the difference means jack sh*t for what you have actually implemented.

First of all I wanted to tell you that I really appreciate the game, it's really cool and I love doing it. It's a lot of fun.

I know that you can never make everybody happy, and I'm sure that there are plenty of people that disagree with me, but I did find the blue text quite useful. That way you actually had four different categories and the pattern recognition part of ones brain is able to pick it up better. Maybe use another colour than blue, if it deters other people from clicking the text?

idk, I will continue to do the game either way, it is super fun. Though with worse times (for now at least). Thanks for making this great game, I really love it!
