More difficult ones here. Thank you for the arrows! Also, it'd make sense if the colours in the titles below were the same as in the map, it's not quite consistent, at least as far as I can see.

Definitely harder than the previous quizzes, but I found most of the other quiz questions too easy. I like this level of difficulty.

It is very hard to create this type of quizzes for some letters. I just came to the letter J and it gave me a headache more than this one.

Some letters should undoubtedly be excluded (maybe just J and the end of the alphabet). Yet W has no countries but a surprising amount of geography to include :)

toughest one of this series by far! based on percentages I am not alone in that conclusion! I guess 16 of 20 isn't horrible as it beats 90% of test takers.

I like this series of quizzes, and this one seemed harder than the others. One suggestion I would give based upon my experience: the color of Dominican Republic was exceptionally difficult to see. Perhaps put an arrow, or change the color to be more distinctive for such a small country.

I like that you upped the hardness level because some of these other letters are pretty easy. The regions and sometimes the mountain ranges require a minute to think about.

This was a much tougher one, and I'd never heard of some of the regions. It's good you're now using categories for the answers, compared to the earlier letters. Another 5/5 rating, you have the best quizes on Jetpunk. Thanks!

Nope, says the Michigander. But I honestly have never heard of Darfur or the plateau, but the pampas region in Argentina...I thought that was farther north.

Why not, in the future I will probably put some of those. And there is part of Croatia here. And thank you for the comment :)

Cities have an alphabetical error and the colours are not even close to what they are on the map.

I'm Argentinian and could barely recall it, and only after I saw the answer. It's a subregion of the Pampas, so it's very specific. Too specific, I'd say.

I learnt about Darfur and the atrocities that have occurred there today, thanks to this quiz.
