Like the improvement! If you're adding New Caledonia and French Polynesia, would it be appropriate to also include Cook Islands and Niue?

Good fun!

I'd be happy to see Cook Islands, Niue and other possible ones as with this quiz I hope I can finally learn where all Oceania countries are!

FSB is right. The Cook Islands are about as independent in all but name. Theyre about as close as you can get to independence without being recognised as such.

You could/should also add Rapa Nui, Tokelau, Wallis and Futuna, Guam, Northern Marianas, as well as Niue and Cooks (as previously mentioned). West Papua also aligns itself with/in Oceania, and has had a vocal mouthpiece through the Melanesian Spearhead Group and the government of Vanuatu in recent years.

Before I knew 5 (Just PNG, NZ, and Australia for their distinctness, and FSM and Kiribati for size), but over time I started to learn with quizzes without actively trying to memorize the Oceanic countries (Nauru is tiny with an island too small to show up towards the north, Palau is westernmost, French Polynesia is easternmost if included, etc). Don't sweat it, just practice taking quizzes and learn from them. Looking for patterns helped me notice Palau, FSM, and sometimes Marshall Islands showing up on quizzes about things near Asia (e.g. Countries Closest to Taiwan).

Some people play it on their phones which have quite small screens and so the names are very close to each other. It is quite possible that they pressed the wrong name due to the small fonts. It has happened to me before

Tuvalu is in the wrong place, and has the wrong size. It is due north of Fiji, and it is an island cluster 685 km across, far bigger than the weeny one-island Nauru-sized dot that appears here.

why are just two of the French territories added - but not Wallis & Futuna? If you are adding the French territories, why not then all the others - Pitcairn, Guam, N. Marianas, US Samoa, Norfolk Is., Tokelau, Niue, Cook Islands and Easter Island?

75%. Not too shabby considering that even though I know all the offical countries of Oceania, I still don't know where they are on the map. My main problem is the smaller islands such as Samoa, Tuvalu, etc. Not to mention I don't even know the other unofficial islands of Oceania. Great quiz anyway!

It's not correct to abbreivate 'federated states of Micronesia' to 'micronesia', because four of the other countries on the map are also part of Micronesia. This is equivalent to labelling the United States of America as 'America' or South Africa as 'Africa'.
