I was rather surprised how high the percentage was for Andorra - don't mind my opinion but I always thought that Andorra was a not very well known country. For 84% of people to get it shocks me.

If you're a frequent flyer on Jet Punk and do lots of geography quizzes you're likely to know about countries some people have never even heard of. You're right though its not very well known by most people.

how do you know it is not well known by most people? do you know most people?

Level 35

Simple proportions. If I know, say, 300 people from family relations and work/school, and I know that at least 80% of them have never even heard of Andorra, not to mention I would probably be the only one, I can rationally assume one of two things: 1) That the company I am acquanted to is incredibly ignorant, or 2) That the majority of people also have no geographical knowledge of Andorra. Being able to logically dismiss the first option after a few minutes of conversation, I think it is rational to assume most people have never heard of Andorra. While this analysis may be incorrect, it is extremely improbable.

Sint Maarten is not really a part of the Netherlands, it is a separate country within the kingdom of the Netherlands.

"The Quizmaster has finally caved! As of yesterday, all featured quizzes will use the name Myanmar instead of Burma." Though, when I read the first sentence, I thought he (metaphorically) dug into a cave.

Oh no! The Quizmaster's determined defence of Burma, as opposed to Myanmar, across many comment sections has been a continuing pleasure. I shall miss it. I hope Burma will still be permitted as an acceptable substitute.

Good quizz, but for Spain, you should mention France as well as Portugal, and Senegal has frontiers with Mali, Mauritania, Guinea and Guinea Bissau, not just Gambia. Or the question should be about Gambia and Senegal the answer.
+1
Level 59
May 23, 2016
The question is about Gambia and Senegal is the answer. And Portugal is the answer to the Spain question. Did you not get the concept of the quiz?
+1
Level 70
May 23, 2016
Every question relates to the border / s of the answer, in other words 'What country only has a border with Spain?'........ answer Portugal.

he only posted it once though.. and it is not like he makes money from it. The more quizes on jetpunk the better right? We cant let quizmaster do all the work. He mght get a breakdown. Besides making quizzes he has to deal with the never endig "Change this ! " and cyprus is NOT in asia check your facts! comments...

Thank you Sifhraven. Finally someone who can reasonably argue on the Cyprus case. All you have to do is a simple check of the facts. A quick google search will quickly reveal that Cyprus is, in fact, in Africa.

1.53 left for me. Similar to a lot of other comments, my knowledge of countries, their capitals (esp newer ones when I learnt them as a kid 40+yr ago) has been greatly assisted by doing the jetpunk quizzes, esp the ones with maps. I now have a much better appreciation of where the countries are and who borders them. Thanks for this quiz and those that make these quizzes in general

Im so tired of comments like this, they are are reaction on the "I beat it with xx seconds left " comments. But these are much worse.

Especially when it is after a kid says im 11 and... etc. That others burn him/her down afterwards. Théy are the ones that are childish, and I am pretty sure most of those are from adults...

So there, got that of my chest, it has been brewing for weeks haha. so fed up with the childish behaviour.. who cares if someone want to post their time.

Level 55
Jul 24, 2018
The "The" is commonly left out. Gambia is under the Gs in the United Nations list of countries. Countries of the World quiz, seemingly the standard here, allows the use of just Gambia (same for Netherlands/The Netherlands).

I agree that gambia definitely should be accepted, but perhaps the answer shóuld show up the correct way. And indeed it never does that with the netherlands either ( but have never really bothered me, maybe because like that is closer to the dutch name itself. No the is used there. Just Nederland (but without an s, I guess the s is what makes that "the" actually really should be included. Because the original title is verenigd koninkrijk der nederlanden. (united kingdom of the netherlands)
