I see the Dutch French land border from Saint Martin is taken into account. Perhaps a hint is needed: Includes borders from overseas territories

I would say that the Oresund bridge merely emphasizes the fact that there is no land border between Denmark and Sweden. That thing wouldn't be needed otherwise...

Challenge - complete with fewest letters typed (barring 'accepted spelling errors', however accepted abbreviation, e.g. "UK" are allowed). My best - 73 (Malta (5), Iceland (7), UK (2), Spain (5), Italy (5), France (5), Austria (6), Germany (7), Sweden (6), Serbia (6), Greece (6), Latvia (6), Moldova (7)) Set to un-timed to practice.

France has 6 letters, making the sum 74. This also makes it interchangeable with Monaco because of Spain and Germany.

You need to count the number of letters in "France" and "Austria" again. This brings your total to 75 - for a while I thought this was the best but you can actually do it in 74 under your rules. Unless there are any more abbreviations I am unaware of, this is definitely the best.

Now looked at the type-ins on the quiz - 74 is definitely the best. Though actually this doesn't take into account FamousRob's idea... I may have to rethink this.

OK you can get 72 if you are allowed to click in the box for free on order to type UKraine. But this would take more time than typing two letters, so I think my 74 is the morally correct answer.

Mar 15, 2017
But this quiz is about countries in Europe - even the map matches the instructions - and St Martin/Sint Maarten in in the Americas. I think it would be more accurate to leave out a Netherlands-France border from this quiz.

Mar 16, 2017
@Jerry928 Although your point is totally valid, I would argue that both countries are located in Europe (forgetting overseas territories) and there is still that border between those two countries located in Europe. And as you have obviously noticed, there is still a 'raging' argument about St Martin's 'urge' to be in the 'Countries Bordering France' quiz. I think because the instructions don't refer to overseas territories (for now!) we should leave it as it is unless I get many more arguing a similar point.

"there is still that border between those two countries located in Europe". Where is the border in Europe? The only place they border is , by technicality, in North America.

I'm going to argue against that because while France borders the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the Netherlands featured in this quiz is only one of the constituent countries of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, thus France does not border the Netherlands. It borders St. Martin/The Kingdom of the Netherlands. From Wikipedia: Kingdom of the Netherlands From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia This article is about the sovereign state. For the constituent country with the same name, see Netherlands.

Read the instructions, it says type in a country and it fills in the countries that it borders on the map aswell. It isnt fill in a country by typing a country that borders it. Edit: it actually also even says (either after your comment or in anticipation of likewise comments) there are two countries that do not border another country. It is all but spelled out..
