Cool idea. Tough though. I feel like it could use more time, but perhaps I'm just slow on the uptake.

Thanks, I appreciate it. It's hard for me to judge the difficulty since I made it, so I'll accept your judgement and add a minute.

You don't have to start with the first two... It loops around so start wherever you like ;)

You can start anywhere, there's no yellow box. Start with the final (5) if you want. Its final letter is the first letter of the first (4) ;)

I’m surprised that Somalia is the second least guess.

Would be better to accept all alternatives that fit IMO. Once you know that the word starts and ends with A and is 9 letters long, there's no reason why Australia is a correct answer but Argentina isn't.

You're absolutely right. But I think accepting multiple answers isn't great either - better if I redo it with only unique length/letter countries.

Edit: I did that, changing Australia/Argentina to a 6-letter country which I'm pretty sure is the only A----A country there is.

I also changed the country before it - I think multiple-word countries are a bit easier, and the quiz was a bit tricky...

Thanks for the input, much appreciated.

you should atleast give a decent hint for the first one because you just have to keep typing 4 letter countries, and if you forget it then you can't do the quiz at all.

You don't have to start with the first one - I suggest thinking about 3,5 or 3,6 or 3,7 first...

Plus, the colours of the column headings are the colours of the first 4-letter country's flag - I didn't advertise that because the instructions say that there aren't any hints!
