I am not against an extra version where no countries are listed besides the oceania ones ;) I seem to type all the islands besides the right one 3 times. And tuvalu and vanuatu even more because I mix those 2 up, similar letters and right after typing I forget which I ve tried. Must have wasted 5 minutes just on those haha

A couple of suggestions:
1. have a 'random' version with just 20 countries and have a harder version where countries turn back to white after they are guessed
2. I think the only area that doesn't work too well is the one with small Caribbean countries. Maybe next to the arrow you could have a magnified map of the area or of the shape of the single country that disappears after it's guessed, like the arrow does?

+4
Level 62
Oct 29, 2019
I'll admit the only way I could get through this was to bypass the random order by 'tabbing' through the progress bar until I got the larger countries. That filled in the major areas of the map and gave context to gradually get the rest of them. Basically impossible to go in an assigned order if you start with tiny nations in a sea of white.
+2
Level 83
Nov 6, 2019
I didn't know you could tab through this one! So yeah started with lots of minor countries. Pretty sure I typed all the minor Caribbean ones 6-7 times each.

doing it in order is a challenge with the small countries, but that's what makes it great! Is it the Vatican, San Marino or Monaco? Tonga, Fiji, Samoa, or Nauru? Which of the Carribean Saints might this be? Lots of fun! Really helps to know the shapes.

Level 79
Nov 5, 2019
Great quiz! This was so fun to do and easier than I thought it would be. It arguably got much easier as the countries filled in. I agree with a previous commenter about having an even harder version that doesn't fill in the map once you've guessed the country: for those masochists among us.

If it is left on the map it is left on the map.. if it is right it is right. A dot on the right side wont be st lucia and on the left wont be nauru. So "no idea about location" is hugely exaggerated, you atleast know the rough location and therefore the continent.

You can just keep hitting the tab key until you get a bigger country. Do that for a while and you'll start to fill in enough of the map that you can start to locate the smaller ones.

Level 73
Nov 7, 2019
Fabulous! Two thoughts: (a) how about also doing a version that starts with everything displayed then they disappear one-by-one on guessing, until you finally have to guess a solitary country floating out there somewhere, and (b) with most people guessing them all, this would be a good quiz to also display, in the answer stats, a bar-graph showing times taken (say in one-minute intervals) to get 100%?

This is one of the best quizzes I have seen in a while. Great job! Also, with the times listed above, and the fact that I, a mediocre quizzer at best, also got 16:53, the time could definitely be shaved by maybe ten minutes. Amazing quiz though, it was seriously fun, and the Caribbean was a nice challenge. Are the Grenadines too small to be included for St Vincent? I kept wondering why Grenada wasn't working.
+1
Level 67
Mar 9, 2020
what would the benefit be of having less time? if you completed it what does the remaining time matter?

Meanwhile it matters a lot for people that havent mastered all the countries, arent fast typers or hate being stressed by the clock, dont know you can use tab (I didnt) or choose not to use it.

So you would spoil the fun for many many people, why? just so your timer will show 6:53 instead of 16:53 after you have finished?

Nov 10, 2019
Great quiz. I was somewhat shafted from the start when I got a blue blob in the bottom right hand corner. Needless to say it was the last pacific island country I tried. It is tricky with them and the Caribbean Islands as you have to constantly zoom in and the map doesn't zoom out when you get it.

Level 67
Mar 9, 2020
yes, because it is awful to finish with 20 minutes on the timer. do you get flogged for each minute you have left on the timer or something? In that case I advise you to type slower, Im sure it is a lot less painfull if you finish with less time on the timer left..
+2
Level 57
Nov 19, 2019
Great quiz. You can get stuck for a while guessing some of the really small islands especially if you don't have some larger countries already filled in to give you some reference points. Managed to finish with 2 seconds left, desperately hoping I could spell Kyrgyzstan correctly.

Survey: on this quiz, is it cheating to hit "Tab" to move on to the next country if you don't know one, eventually cycling back to it once the map is more full?
+1
Level 69
Dec 30, 2019
I don't think it is cheating if this is available, but not as satisfying as getting it straight from 'go to whoa' without tabbing.
+1
Level 67
Jan 7, 2020
You could say it is available to pause the timer and look answers up, but I think everyone would agree that would be cheating too. Just because something is possible/available doesnt mean it is "fair game" . (You could even go as far as saying during an exam, if the examinator leaves for the toilet and he has the answers on his desk, well they are available arent they? People can only cheat if it is possible, it being possible doesnt mean it is not cheating).
+1
Level 67
Jan 7, 2020
In my opinion it is, since it is against the purpose of this quiz which is to answer in order. Different from yellow box quizzes where the purpose of the quiz is not to do it in order (just to prevent accidental correct guesses for the other questions). For those quizzes it is not cheating.

the idea is to answer the country you are given. Not just a country of your own choice. (That would be an entirely different quiz)

Oh. Em. Gee. I am so glad I got that on the first try (just barely squeaked in under 29 min!), because there's no way I'd want to do it twice. I have hardly any idea which country is which in Oceania or the Caribbean (except for the big ones like Haiti), so I did a ton of guessing. The Balkans nearly killed me too.

I did it ;) I love this quiz. I sruggled a bit at the Lesser Antilles and the Polynesia area. The rest are fairly easy and fun. Thanks
