Fun idea yes. Explained.. well what other country to they border? They only border one country, there's no other country? Took a while to work that one out, I'd leave out one "other" there.

yea not well explained imo, seeing the table gave a clue but even at that point I thought we needed to give both names. When you know what is asked, the description makes sense, but when you don't, it makes you think of several scenarios

and yes @other. My first thought ( before I saw the table) was, for example; denmark only has one border, with germany. So which other countries does germany border. That is what it seems to say.

Instead of "Name the other countries they border" I would say "Name that country"

Well I must be an idiot. I typed Canada, nothing happened. I typed South Korea, nothing happened. I typed southkoreanorthkorea, nothing happened. How is this quiz supposed to work?

But do causeways? Singapore is connected by a causeway, not a bridge.

Great Quiz! Why do Jetpunk Quizzes never consider passport island as a border?
+1
level 73
Dec 6, 2017
Because it's artificial, or because it's considered part of the causeway

but then the uruguayan-argentinian border should not count since they only border each other by bridges over the uruguay river?
+1

but without the bridge they still border eachother through the river. It would be quite something if riverborders wouldnt count, that would be like saying, no the countries arent bordering eachother, there is a mountain in the way, for some countries.

I understood what the goal was but kept forgetting to type the country that was adjacent to the single-border country.

I think people probably thought they had those answers by answering the first ones, the concept befuddled me at first.

Same here. If I got one, I didn't realize I might have to also type the other one. It took me a while to get the whole concept.

what about cyprus?

Apr 8, 2018
It shares a border only with a UK overseas territory. Overseas territories do not count, otherwise Ireland would not be on here.

Or is dogla305 stirring things with Northern Cyprus? [Took me a while to get your Ireland comment - kept thinking "Ireland doesn't have any overseas territories bordering other countries?!"]

What about Vatican City???

Apr 8, 2018
What about it? It's there - the very last in the right column. You get it together with San Marino when you type Italy.
+1

Apr 8, 2018
Just a little nitpick: The Vatican City and PNG are not mentioned in the answer stats.

You're right.
+1
level 50
Apr 8, 2018
Maybe it's because you get PNG and East Timor when you type Indonesia, you can't get one and not the other. Therefore there is only one stat for both answers. The same for the Vatican and San Marino- you get both when you type Italy.

May I suggest changing the title to "Neighbors of One Border Countries"? I think it does a little better of a job getting the point across. Regardless, this was a good quiz!

You should comment in the instructions that overseas land territories do not count, because Gibraltar (UK) and Spain definitely is one

Whenever the description of a quiz ends "Get it?" you know it'll be poorly described. I suggest title: "Neighbors of Single-Border Countries" and description: "There are 17 countries that have only one land border each. Name the neighboring country for each of those 17."

In Jetpunk it is generraly accepted that UK has a border with Spain. So I didn't get Ireland
