I always begin by typing in large countries with short names (such as Niger, Congo, and Sudan), and then filling in the gaps from there. South Africa is also a good one to start with.

In the countries of the world borders in 90 secs, it does not include island countries with no borders. If a country has no borders, how is it in a borders quiz?
+1
level 61
Oct 25, 2019
This is impossible to do in 30 seconds if you need the island countries. I understand why you'd want to keep them, but if so, you should really add 30 more seconds.

Perhaps you could include non-African countries (like Spain) as type-ins for African countries (like Morocco), or would that defeat the point?

Spain is an African country. I've been Ceuta, Melilla and Gran Canaria and there's no doubting that they are all African.

For some reason, DRC triggers Madagascar. Unless there's some far flung exclave I'm not aware of, I think that's a mistype in the acceptable responses...

Also, typing in Guinea fills in Guinea Bissau even when I have already gotten Guinea from another country, like Mali
+1

Feb 10, 2017
Mali borders Guinea, but not Guinea-Bissau. Typing in Guinea will give you Guinea-Bissau because Guinea borders Guinea-Bissau, if it didn't then it wouldn't be accepted. Also, fixed the Equatorial Guinea error.

They're countries in Africa and similar quizzes require the island countries to be entered too. I did it first try, it's not impossible.

Had to take it several times, but finally made it. I had a hard time getting all the islands done at the end, since the names are so long and I fat-fingered them a couple times, so I found it easier to do them first then blitz through the continent.

Hello CraftyBanana, I don't know if the mainland can be done with fewer than 10 countries, but it can be done with fewer characters: You have Congo, which will give both the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Republic of the Congo and all their bordering countries. But just the Democratic Republic of the Congo is enough to get the job done; the Republic of the Congo is not needed as a separate entity. In that case, replace Congo with DRC, saving two characters. And replace Mozambique with Malawi, saving another four characters, for a total saving of six characters.

Why do you have countries without border here. The other quizzes that have Island Nations have the Islands shared by multiple Nation such as Haiti and dominican republic, Indonesia, Malaysia... Please remove the countries without border or raise the timer to 40 or 45 secs

I agree, but Gamer1162 is accurate in his comment that the border quizzes of other continents also, for some silly reason, include borderless countries. I get an error message when I try to access the North America borders quiz, though - wondering if it includes the Caribbean islands. I do think that based on this "everybody does it" rationale, there probably needs to be a borders quiz for Oceania... no? :-)

The most efficient set I can find is: South Africa Malawi DRC Ethiopia Libya Togo Guinea Senegal Morocco/Algeria for the mainland. If I counted right, that's 57 letters, or about 2 a second with no mistakes. Adding the islands means another 52, doubling the difficulty. Not to say that you must remove them from the quiz, or that you must extend the time, but be aware this quiz is twice as had with them in as with them out.
