When I did it, Azerbaijan and Georgia were missing and Armenia looked all jacked up. Is this the borders their government claims to have or an error in the map?

Thanks! I've increased the difficulty by allowing all countries that can be seen without the use of zoom, although zooming would make some countries much easier to spot.

Don't you just love it when Canada and the U.S disappear and you have lakes in the middle of the ocean and you think "What's to say there aren't just lakes in the middle of the ocean?"

Good quiz, although in my opinion small island nations should be excluded. tried twice, only ones I missed were Palau, Nauru & Maldives in 2 attempts.

Small island nations are still very visible from the light water, so they shouldn't be excluded for their difficulty alone

Gotta agree with @RKS, I had Maldives, Tonga, Solomon Islands and Micronesia. It's blinking hard to work out which south Pacific Island nations are missing. Maldives is slightly easier but those countries that barely show up are by definition very difficult to spot.

I could remove Nauru, Tonga, and Samoa at most, but ones like Maldives are so far away from other islands that's they're unmistakably there. All countries in the pool can be detected without difficulty, it's just a matter of whether or not you know their locations well enough to be able to spot it.

It would be a much boringer quiz if thode countries were not included. I don't need a quiz to be 'fixed' just so I can solve it easier. Some quizzes just are challenging, this is one of them and I love it!

I even think the lesser antilles should be included too. Would be a great way to better learn their locations. This quiz made me much stronger on my southern pacific :D

I think the Lesser Antilles is out of the question because you'd need to zoom and look extremely close to see those countries. However, you can learn the Lesser Antilles on the Americas Map version :)

@QM, yes, I got the Maldives, as you say it is easy to spot its absence. I do think the South Pacific Island groups are worth looking at again. As for @Gustavhansa's suggestion, I'm not sure where to start with that. I don't think Jetpunk lets me use the phrase I want to.

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 ;)

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
