Does Sweden not count? I just looked at a political map of Europe and it does touch the sea quite a bit.

And on the west coast of Sweden is the Skagerrak strait. Which is, like the English Channel, not part of the North Sea.

I agree. I'm just responding to the instructions which make it sound like doing it in "just one minute" is a challenge.

Not sure about the criteria but if you research this you'll find out it doesn't border the North Sea. Maybe the Skagerrak strait is considered something on it's own as there needs to be something that draws the line between North and Baltic sea.

No, you only get points if you equal or beat at least 25% of the players on the quiz. On this quiz, only 15.5% got 5 answers or less.

Thank you for that explanation. I have always wondered how the points system worked. Not sure I agree with it, but at least now I know.

I feel like Sweden should be included as it borders the Skagerrak, which has been defined as an extend arm of North Sea in here, here and here. Also the Wikipedia article for North Sea counts Sweden as a bordering country.
