First one I tried as well, but turns out that only English is official. Hausa, Igbo and Yoruba are widely spoken, but do not have official status.

Wikipedia wasn't lying; it lists Igbo as a "major" language, not an "official" one: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nigeria

According to Wikipedia - "Yiddish has attained official recognition as a minority language only in Moldova, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Netherlands, and Sweden"

Does "minority language" exclude it?

Yes, official recognition is not the same as official language of a country

Cool quiz! But like others are saying. It definitely needs more time. It is just another typing test now, which is a shame for this one.

If you miss one (or more) there is no time to think about it, the answers need to come almost instantly

@future commentors, no we will not put it on pause. That is no solution it kills the experience. And if it is plenty of time for you, surely you will get 100% so the time will stop anyway, no need to wait it out (or why don;t you press give up... if you can't reach 100%) so no reason to ask for less time

And Welsh is an official language in the whole of the country of Wales. There's currently a featured quiz on the first page asking people to name a country of the UK using the Welsh flag. That does rather give the game away.

When a quiz on Jetpunk says country it usually means sovereign state, unless it is obvious or there is a hint in the clue that suggests otherwise

Please add Latin, which is Vatican City's official language. Tried this first for letter L, because it seemed quite obvious, and was surprised to see it didn't work.

Because there are several countries starting with an N and your mind basicly want to think of all the 196 at once. There are only two countries starting with a Z though, so your mind doesnt get flooded. And thinking of zambia and zimbabwe your mind is already at africa, so zulu springs to mind immediately.

I missed i,v, and q. Q I wouldnt have gotten, V would ve taken quite a long time. But not getting i was simply time constraint
