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.

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.

What browser / OS are you using, maybe this is specific to one in particular?

Jan 1, 2020
Chrome on this particular phone. I started and stopped the game. Eritrea / Ethiopia and Guinea / Sierra Leone didn't merge.
+1
Level 68
Jan 1, 2020
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)
+1
Level 68
Jan 2, 2020
I had the same issue with Saudi Arabia/Jordan, also using chrome.

Level 68
Jan 2, 2020
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
Level 68
Jan 10, 2020
Changed again. I've decided to just not show the missing border afterwards, hopefully that makes things easier and clearer to see.

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.

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.

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.
