May I offer suggestions for those who are stressing about having too much time:

First, complete the quiz in 4.75 seconds.

Second, collect your 5/5 marks.

Third, post wry comment about how you must do better next time and

Four, move on to another quiz.

You do realise you don't have to sit there twiddling your thumbs for the remaining 29 minutes and 55.25 seconds don't you?

Thank you Stewart, great fun as always.

I just got Andorra purely by guessing- there was no arrow or anything so I couldn't see it highlighted at all.

Feb 3, 2023
The stats seem odd. I wouldn't have expected 2/3 of people to get 100%. And I thought more people would drop out before 196.

Maybe it has to do with resets. I don't know how many hits a daily quiz gets, but I suspect it's not enough to collect 259,000 attempts, even with multiple days featured.

I think most people who visit jp daily know 196 countries. I'd just expect more distribution between #5-196 correct.

And the bottom countries are all in the Caribbean. I would've guessed Oceania is less-familiar.

+2
Level 68
Feb 3, 2023
There are 88k takes since last reset, however only the first take of each user counts as the stats. This is the first time it has been on the front page since the reset.

This would mean that most people finding it are JetPunk regulars, and so know 196/196.

Regarding the lowest-guessed, the Caribbean is harder for those who know all countries, because you have to guess the correct one, and most don't know the order / placement of countries in the Caribbean.

Level 66

Oh, ty, that makes sense (Caribbean).

Level 66
Feb 3, 2023
Is the map distorted, or different than the one typically used? It felt like things weren't shaped quite right, or weren't where I expected them to be. And the zoom is always frustrating for me. I understand only so much can be done.

Fun quiz regardless, ty for the series.

+1
Level 68
Feb 3, 2023
Yes, the map is purposely inflated a little (in particular remove some of the atlantic ocean) to try and increase the possible visibility of the smallest countries.

What's the issue with the zoom?

+1
Level 66
Feb 3, 2023
The zoom feature is disorienting to me, and often doesn't zoom where I want it to. I lose perspective/context. (The map isn't loaded for me atm, but for example, I'll click CAR, but get a zoomed-section centered on Niger, and CAR is way over to one side). But that seems to be a limitation of the site.
+1
Level 68
Feb 3, 2023
Yeah so that's because when we zoom, we stay within the bounds of the map. For example clicking near the corner requires clicking right in the corner otherwise it doesn't go to the right position.

I should probably look to see if there's something I can do about that, because others have complained on this point too on other quizzes across JetPunk.

Thank you for the feedback though!

I hate this quiz, I don't just automatically know where a blue circle is somewhere over the Pacific, esp with no context clues. Also the shapes of the countries are too small.
+1
Level 60
Feb 18, 2023
I'm quite a geography nerd and even I had to guess some of these, as it's impossible to know which exact island it is without at least some of the mainland nations there. The islands should have been circle later on in the quiz.
