What about dependencies (i.e., Faroe Islands, Gibraltar, etc.)? They have country codes too.

I was able to do it in 53 seconds in my third attempt. I think its possible for anyone to do with a little practice.

@giosop, it is described as beat the clock... so no not a knowledge quiz in this case. (well partially obviously)

27 is 5 points. And once this is featured the average will go down. So nothing to worry about; just one every two seconds!

Congratulations to all the speed typists that have brainwashed the Quizmaster into making interesting quizzes with ridiculous time limits. Spoilt the quiz for those of us that enjoy using our brains and learning something rather than doing a quiz 20 times to beat the clock.

If you dislike these 'speed typing' quizzes, here's an amazing way to deal with them! JUST DON'T TAKE THEM. Better yet, make your own time-adjusted version, on the off chance there aren't twelve already. Why do you and others like you get worked up about this kind of thing?

Wow, so sports questions that reach back beyond 1950 are deemed too tangential, if not completely irrelevant, because the frequency that they are correctly guessed is soooo low.....but the massive rash of low %'s for even obvious countries on this list isn't evidence that 1:00 minute is ridiculous? 6% for "SK" and Slovakia? 4% for "UA" and Ukraine? And that's okay? But heaven forbid a sports question reference Bob Feller or Josh Gibson or Connie Mack.

more chance in guessing the country codes even if you have no clue, than those names. the chance you guess a random name that is actually correct is close to zero ( unless the name that need to be guessed is something like john smith,,, thén there is a chance..)

Normally I'm put off by quizzes when I can only get nine answers on my first go, but I took it twice untimed and ended up getting 36/44 which beat 99% of takers so that was satisfying.

I understand that with too much time people could simply guess the codes based on the names for most of the answers but seriously, 1 minute?

Ridiculous time limit. Most people just cannot type that fast.

The average score is currently 10/44. This if anything is proof that this quiz needs more time than just one minute.

I thought that I'd accidentally given up on the quiz twice before I saw that it was only one minute. It needs at least 30 more seconds.

Why are some countries in Europe allowed to be represented by their own language (DE for Germany instead of GE, ES for Spain instead of SP), but others are not (Greece not Hellas, Finland not Suomi, Hungary, etc.)? Why are these latter countries forced to adopt their English-language names and corollary abbreviations?

One would have to look into the history of these codes, it's quite possible the country itself wanted to use a more internationally recognizable code.

Too little time. As each field requires selection, the time requirement is too narrow. I get that "with practice" someone could get it done. I don't see that as the point of the tests, but to test existing knowledge.

2nd time I got all but croatia and serbia. And it wasnt because of time. I just couldnt think of it, must ve had about 15 seconds for them left. Tried like 20 things each.

So definitely not impossible
