Is there a way for you to create the opposite version of this quiz where 10 borders are removed?
+9
Level 68
Dec 9, 2019
Technically yes, but creating it in a way that people could type it would be hard. Since each random border removed would constitute two answers. Potentially doing it in a way someone has to type, for example "UK Ireland" or "Ireland UK". I.e. having to type both countries that constitute a border.
+6
Level 46
Dec 9, 2019
Ok, that makes sense. There are quizzes that have you type in both as two different answers (like the Longest International Borders quiz). But the random part with two answers would still be quite challenging.

I think there's one already, in which you must enter any of the two countries whose border was "erased"

Fixed :P I think I was going for something like "dis-included", and discluded sounded wrong but I couldn't think of anything better. Excluded is exactly what I was looking for!

Edit: Saying that, I found it on Wikitionary, so it appears to mean exactly as I intended: disclude

Time is fine imo, eventhough I missed 3 this first time (I wasted alot of time in an area I could have sworn had an extra border, so tried all the surrounding countries with no luck...)

It's a great concept, but the fake borders load last so it's easy to spot some of them (even accidentally) when the map loads. Also some of them have a slightly different texture compared to regular borders which make them stand out more, or maybe I'm too used to the usual borders.
