A quick check is to just refresh the page, and you'll find the answers do indeed change.

Yes. But accidentally, answers became Political. I live in India and well know about its relations and history with Pakistan. While again playing this quiz, I got 4 countries merged in a row:- Senegal, Guinea, Liberia and Ivory Coast leaving the border of Guinea and Ivory Coast to became strange line.

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

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'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.

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

Papua New Guinea only appears once in the answers (with Indonesia) and works fine for me

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

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

I got Bosnia merged with Serbia. That is sooo wrong ^^. Belgium with the Netherlands and France was a bit provocative too :p.

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.

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.

Out of curiousity, can dependencies merge with other countries? For example, could France merge with Brazil?

Jan 6, 2020
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.
