So if countries that are "undetectable" have not been considered...Why do I get Mauritius and Nauru and minuscule islands that you could never see on this map? Even when you zoom in, how do you know to look for countries like that?

Mauritius is detectable if you're looking out for 5 small island countries in Africa ;)
+3
Level 67
Dec 5, 2019
To be fair, it was becáuse of the caveat/description that I missed some of the smaller ones. Didnt look for/at them because I assumed they would be excluded.

The quiz is fine (before I get hatemail just because of sharing my experience, which seems to be the trend lately, so you need to apologize in advance that you didnt mean it like that.. people jump at any chance they get to leave snide remarks it seems..) it just ironically had the opposite effect for me of what was intended, because usually I actually wóuld be sure to not overlook the smaller countries

That's a fair point - I've edited the caveat to give detail about which countries are included.

Mar 9, 2020
Cool, didnt expect that. Didnt read the caveat this time, I think I remembered (2nd round) I need to check for lighter spots around Africa. And actually had to count how many "sports" there were in Oceania, because I couldnt tell you of the top of my head beforehand (without listing them in my head).

Finally got em all 6th run... kept getting stuck around 17/18 because of those darn Oceania islands ;) (Oceaniac? ah Oceanian I think :))

Really? We're supposed to be able to spot a super tiny island, Seychelles, in this way to small map in the middle of the ocean and is next to anything for reference? Sure, you can one click it larger, but you would never be able to find it in the time allowed
+1
Level 54
Jan 23, 2022
It's pretty easy with the light water. There should be three island countries around Madagascar and if there isn't, one of them is an answer. You shouldn't have to zoom in for that—it's larger than some other countries like Rwanda.

Level 72
Dec 23, 2019
Couldn't agree more about the Seychelles. How would you even know it's missing?

There should be 3 islands in the Madagascar area. If there's not a north one, you're missing Seychelles!

Level 67
Mar 9, 2020
Yea pretty easy to see if one of the islands is missing if you know how many there are. With the light blue around them they are not that small at all, bigger than switzerland or belgium for instance (and many others in europe). Interesting the ones people decide to complain about.

Level 69
Dec 23, 2019
Ten tries later, finally got it! Sure, I should use this as an opportunity to learn to tell apart the South Pacific nations, but it's much easier to just type all of them every time, and some random Caribbean ones, too. Then I start looking for the countries that are distinguishable.

I've taken this quiz very many times, really helps you learn geography. A few countries never seem to be missing - Cyprus, Lebanon and Djibouti. Wondering why as other very small countries are regularly missing?
+1
Level 64
Jan 24, 2020
Yes, those countries are undetectable, at least without zooming in specifically. Several other smaller nations have been omitted, such as the Lesser Antilles and Europe microstates. Would you be interested in a version that includes all countries (except micronations)?
+2
Level 88
Jan 30, 2020
I don't need a new version. On my monitor, however, these countries are just as detectable without zooming as say Malta, Israel or Equatorial Guinea.
+1
Level 67
Mar 9, 2020
Yea I think cyprus is just as visible ( if not more) and noticeable if it is missing as haiti. (which is even trickier, because it still has half of its island there).

I wasnt aware that they were excluded, every round I started by checking if malta and cyprus were still there haha. (Then african islands and maldives, then iceland and new zealand, they are easy to overlook when missing. Then I check for other obvious missing countries, then I count oceania, but remain clueless in that region haha)

I usually look for 5 island micronations in Africa, 2 on the west coast (Sao Tome and Cape Verde) and 3 on the east (Comoros, Mauritius, Seychelles).

Oceania can definitely be tricky, but you can see the small islands in rows of 3-2-3-3. Nauru would be the first country in the 2nd row, or specifically for Nauru you can look for a tiny dot next to the "large area" of Kiribati.

I got all 20 of the 20 missing countries. The last one was hard to spot. The last one is South Korea, or R.O.K . When I saw something and said: is there anything here? Then I saw R.O.K. and made the amlunt 20. I did all of it.

Certainly NOT random. To creator, consider alternative algorithm, maybe one using a true random number generator versus an alphabetical list? As it is, it seems the countries that touch each other are favored to occur together, as are small nations near coasts, I guess to make things challenging.

Got to 20 on about 10th try, though got very close (18-19) on every attempt. A few tips for those who cannot get through this quiz... After a few tries you get the idea of the common suspects that trip people up: island countries, small countries by the coasts (oceans and inland lakes/seas) like Kuwait, Djibuti, Azerbeijan, El salvador, and all those tiny island nations around Africa and Oceania. You can reload until you get all or nearly all Oceania countries.
