Geography Snap Game

Created by Stewart
6,234,640 tiles matched

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.

Just 8 months after Even Split, we have another JetPunk minigame! To see how this one came about, you can read the blog about it here: A New JetPunk Minigame.

I got the flags for Romania and Chad in the same round twice. And both times I guessed the wrong flag...

No, the point is not to make it easy, the point is to remove impossible confusion. Ireland and Ivory Coast are very clearly different flags, whereas Chad and Romania are practically identically.

It is impossible to change the source code. Though it would be easy to hack if you could, just change the timer so that it speeds up your time

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 73
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!

Oct 26, 2020
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 60
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.
+2

Level 70
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 Cรดte 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.)

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

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.

It's much quicker on mobile, as you aren't restricted by mouse movements. The fastest device is actually a tablet / touch screen laptop, since then you have the benefit of the desktop layout with the speed of finger tapping!
