How the heck have so many people gotten Vanuatu. I mean, I know the country, but more people have gotten it than Vietnam, which is WAY more well known. Even though the quiz is new, I still wouldn't expect that.

Not geographically. It is however a part of the EU and culturally quite European. But it's still located in Asia.

Well, Iceland is not european either, then. It's located in America.

What makes you say that? Iceland is much closer to the UK than it is to Canada. And it's probably as much on the Northamerican as it is on the Eurasian plate. If that's any indication at all.

It's still not a maritime province of Canada. Think of it more as a historical province, it used to be Lower Canada and New France after all.

Yep, it does touch the Atlantic, but it's not really considered a Maritime province. I think the reason for this is that it covers a lot of other territory besides just the Atlantic. The Maritime Provinces on the other hand are for the most part surrounded by the Atlantic.

The European island questions... I avoid them when writing my pub quizzes for the same obvious reasons... Cyprus has to be avoided as geographically, it's Asia, but politically and in sport, it's European.. it's a member of the E.U, partakes of UEFA football competitions, Eurovision, and events run by the European Athletics Assoc. so unless you're going to strictly define what you mean by "Europe" just avoid it, someone will always argue...

The "new" states might need rephrasing, I thought it was about the youngest states but there really wouldn't be any new states.

The "new" states one is quite misleading. I thought it was about the newest states (Hawaii, Alaska,...), then I thought it could be about possible future states (like Puerto Rico, or Washington DC), but none worked.

Great quiz! But if mediteranean is one of the accepted answers I would not also give aegean since one is part of the other. If you accept the parts, then you should accept levantine aswell instead of mediterannean. Stick with either subdivisions or the encompassing name, not a bit of everything. Doesnt matter which, as long as it is consistent. (and possibly accepts sihkism and janism/janaism as type ins? If not that is fine too, but especially the sihkism seems a logical one to accept since words with h usually get a lot of leniency)
