Confidently starting this quiz only to be confronted with Reunion & Mayotte made me feel like Brave Sir Robin as he confidently stepped up to answer the "Questions Three" at the Bridge of Death over the Gorge of Eternal Peril.

"Wait, I don't kno...aaaaaaahhhhhh!!!"

Yep, purposely added in Mayotte and RĂ©union since they're overseas departments of France and often count in quizzes like "Countries closest to" and so on, so thought it might be good to encourage people to learn where they are :)

Good idea. In the Indian Ocean Island Games last year, both Reunion and Mayotte had their own teams. They are, for most practical purposes, distinct from France. Reunion is completely distinct from Mauritius, and Mayotte is becoming more distinct from Comoros all the time. Given that you did this, I wonder if it's time to separate Somaliland from Somalia as well, given that Mogadishu has had nothing to do with it for twenty-nine years now.

Pretty straightforward this one, was aware of location of Mayotte and Reunion because I have been doing the French language quizzes, so had looked into the matter. Three minutes is a lot of time, I needed 0:39 secs

I remember that flight between Paris and reunion is the longest domestic flight. So,I thought that reunion must be father than France and got It right.

Thanks Stewart, it provided me SVG for my this quiz

I don't know if you're trying something new with the layout, but I think I prefer being able to see all the countries rather than a scrollable list, which is only just big enough not to fit on one column without scrolling anyway. Just a suggestion

I appreciate that this is based on UN designations, but it's weird that they would put South Sudan in East Africa and not Sudan.

Loved the quiz! Small detail, though: when I clicked on the map to switch countries (bypassing those I wasn't sure of), it zoomed in at the same time. I don't remember this being the case on other map quizzes. And having to unzoom everytime to continue can be a bit annoying. Am I the only one having this problem?

Can we stick to countries only please, just like every other quiz of this type? Get the bloody overseas territories off of this!
