Nice! Maybe you could add the Drava which also flows through 5 countries.

Nice quiz! Thank you! Three of the rivers flow through my home country (almost the same as the ones which are near your home, I guess - only Rhine instead of Tisza).

What's the 5th country for Tisza? Wikipedia only listed 4, but it looks like it might go to Slovakia for a bit? Was too lazy to find a proper map as googlemaps really didn't show much of the river.

The title should be "Rivers that flow through the most countries." It is missing the 'the'.

Great quiz! It's hard to tell from maps, but it looks like the Zambezi might touch DRC, which would bring the total to seven countries (including Namibia, Angola, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, and Mozambique).

Actually, it seems like it touches the border of the Congo, but it doesn't actually pass through it.

Good quiz indeed, but hard. I scored 5 points with only 78% correct. Didn't know those two Danube tributaries.

Could you specify whether tributaries count or not. I think the White or Blue Nile should be on this list.

I can't imagine they would, if you're talking about 'White and Blue Nile', but the whole 'Nile' is on the list.

Perhaps it should be noted that two of the answers are tributaries of a third of the correct answers

Not really, there are just less countries for the rivers to flow through. Central America is too narrow, the US and Canada take up almost all of the north, and Brazil takes up a massive amount of the south.

Not sure how you count the basin/connected systems. Otherwise Volta might be added (CdIv, Gh, Togo, Benin, BF and Mali)
