I got South Africa and Namibia merged, Ecuador and Colombia merged, and Chad, Sudan, and South Sudan merged. I also had Russia and China merged and that makes Mongolia look like an island.

Great quiz! But you still can see a strip of the Libya-Niger border..

Level 68
Jan 1, 2020
Perhaps you had Libya-Chad and Chad-Niger, meaning the Libya-Niger border didn't disappear since it wasn't an answer. A minor "flaw" in the quiz.

I thought Sudan and Eritrea was a toughie to spot, but I had Papua New Guinea and Indonesia....with the border still clearly intact. Glitch?

Same thing with Russia & Ukraine the second time. Both borders between them are fully intact. I don't want to keep dropping nags, it's a great brain teaser quiz.

Chrome on this particular phone. I started and stopped the game. Eritrea / Ethiopia and Guinea / Sierra Leone didn't merge.

Did they not merge or is it just that the border shows up after? Because incorrect borders show up dark red when you finish (to easily identify which are missed)

I had the same issue with Saudi Arabia/Jordan, also using chrome.

I've made it clearer when you've missed a border now, by making it white instead of red. I can assure you borders do disappear as expected, merging the countries. It's only when you give up or run out of time that the incorrect borders show up again to make it clear what you missed.
+1

Changed again. I've decided to just not show the missing border afterwards, hopefully that makes things easier and clearer to see.

Jan 5, 2020
Not 100% sure because time is up now, but pretty sure I saw the new guinea border during the quiz. One of the first places I check to see of they are merged. On chrome on tablet, will try to recreate it. Edit: 40 tries later... couldnt get another one with new guinea/ indonesia border. No time to continue trying now, maybe later.

Thanks for testing. Do you think I should keep the borders hidden even when incorrect? That feels like the only sure-fire way of knowing what's happening.

It looked as if Liechtenstein had been merged with either Austria or Switzerland, but I guess it was just too small to see.
+2
Level 68
Jan 1, 2020
Yeah Liechtenstein was too small for this map sadly. It's surprising how small it is! Also borders which are very small are not possible. I didn't want to make the quiz too impossible :P

Jan 5, 2020
More seriously, that's a funny idea. As others have said, there are a few problems but probably hard to fix... I had the two pairs CAR with the Congos, so that the frontier between the Congos didn't disappear.
+1
Level 68
Jan 5, 2020
Yeah the only way for this to be "fixed" would be by removing the majority of the answers, making the quiz almost boring as they'd be only around 50 possible pairs, as opposed to 214.

Technologically it could've been possible, yes. However I decided not to do this, since I believed it would make things simpler for most users. So only mainland borders of countries are considered.

I wonder if some of these merges might happen one day. North and South Korea I could definitely see. I had Germany and Austria and well, that's happened before, to say the least. Also had USA and Canada, which sure isn't happening anytime soon, but with enough pressure from climate change pushing enough Americans into Canada...I mean hey, it could happen?

It is kinda tricky when you have four adjacent countries all merged, and you only detect the missing border between the middle ones (in my case Colombia, Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina). As soon as they turn green, the outer two countries appear just fine, and you can't figure out which other countries the heck you are still missing.
