Very good quiz, really tests your knowledge. But nowhere near enough time allotted - I only got to the top of the third column and I moved at a pretty good pace. A lot of questions for what was it, 14 minutes?

I agree with cuotak here, I barely got to the end of the 2nd column before I ran out of time. I mean, the normal countries of the world quiz gives you 15 minutes just to type in the 196 answers, so now you are essentially giving only 5 minutes of extra time for reading the 196 clues.

I appreciate that you've made this quiz but I recommend you fix the grammar and change the hints which apply to several countries. I'd list the mistakes but it would take several 1000-character comments and eat up more time than I spent answering the quiz.

"Along with Samoa, this country is the only monarchy in Oceania" is incorrect. New Zealand and Australia are both constitutional monarchies, as is Tonga. And Tuvalu. And the Solomon Islands. And Papua New Guinea. Please rephrase the question.

A lot of these clues could work for multiple countries, and thus cause a lot of confusion, especially the vague ones. "Country whose capital's name is the country name." could work for at least 5 countries, up to 10 for "somewhat similar". "African country with large lake named after it" can also be Chad, formerly Malawi, formerly Tanzania, etc. Russia also fits under Georgia's clue, USA could work for Liberia's clue, etc.

I realized I changed answers, but I didn't reset the quiz design! The reason some of the hints don't make sense is because these answers came from other quizzes I made like "African Countries by clue" and things like that.

Some issues:
Belgium: 2x typo - loocated, Country
Congo: typo - Kinsasha + I would leave out the river name
Iceland: Azores are further west ...
Ivory Coast: St Paul's Cathedral in Abidjan looks interesting, but not sure why it's singled out among other cathedrals of the same name. "biggest church in the world" is a much better clue.

"This is the only english speaking country in Central America" I saw the same sentence at another quiz. Correct me if I am wrong, but English is official language in Barbados too. Is Barbados in North America?
