It was the Z that cracked it for me. If Zimbabwe is closer than Zambia, it can only be one of about 4 or 5 countries. Lesotho was my second guess after that.

Your goal is to guess the unknown country. To help, you are shown (not as a hint) which countries are closest to it, for each letter A to Z. For example, Zimbabwe is the closest "Z" country to Lesotho; Zambia is further. Hope that helps! :)

Great quiz! For some reason, the first country I could think of was Lesotho, so that was funny. Also, not to start an argument, but wouldn't Ivory Coast be closer than Israel? Or are you counting it as Côte D'Ivoire?

The quiz should give you points on how few guesses you need to guess the country. I got lesotho in 4 guesses.
