This quiz took a week to create and I am very happy to submit it now. There are 3419 possible answers.
I will gladfully read your feedback if you have something to say, whether it be about the content (potential mistakes) or the form (especially the time limit).
You might get a lot of dots in Russia – blame them from both owning 11% of the world's land area and benefiting from the projection, not me!
I hope you'll have fun taking this quiz :)

I mean, I could do that, but I'm not sure I want to. Doesn't it ruin the point of having a borderless map?

Is there a way you could make it so the borders appear after the quiz is over? Also I think it's kind of funny that I got Russia for 10 of mine my first time playing, and none for U.S., Canada, China, Brazil, Australia or India.

Beautiful! Just curious, are the possible dots evenly distributed on the map?
+2
Level 69
Sep 4, 2020
Thanks! I made it so that within each country, every single point would be part of at least 1 circle (sometimes 2 if they overlap) even if they're not necessarily the centre (which would obviously be impossible). So yes, dots are evenly distributed for that projection

I just randomly encountered a mistake, there was no dot anywhere, but the results were saying it was on south africa. Dont know what caused it, since I've already played it a couple of times with no problems. Anyways it's a really nice quiz!

Thanks for letting me know, I am aware that such mistakes can happen even if they're "rare", it will be corrected as soon as I find which dot is problematic (I have to test them manually)

Edit : it is now fixed, thanks! Basically when I created that quiz, I used a spreadsheet with more than 3000 cities and their coordinates to generate the dots, then I equally distributed them on the map manually. Some countries like South Africa had more dots than I needed, so I deleted some dots (about 1000 overall). Then I had to create new paths for countries like Russia which required hundreds of new dots. When deleting a dot without removing the entry in the spreadsheet, it causes the problem you have encountered

1 minute seriously? I'd nominate it if it had more time - I was enjoying it and doing well (I thought) until it just abruptly ended. Not such a fan of typing tests myself.

Really neat idea though.

It was initially 45 seconds but I was told to add some time. It seems that 50% of people can complete this quiz on their first try (which is not something I'm extremely happy with btw), so if it's hard for you, well take it as a challenge and try again! Maybe you'll get an easier round :)

Wow, in the same round, I got 6 in Canada and 4 in the USA, all ten of which were near the west coast. I got 4 in Africa, none in Russia and the only one in Asia was in Oman. Also, a dot in Germany was missing from the map.

I now went through all the dots and made sure there is no ghost answer left. Looks like there were 12 in total, 8 of which were found by the community (half of which were by you iirc). I cannot thank you enough for your help, support and dedication ever since I first published this quiz :)

This is really a lot of fun, thank you! Needed several tries to reach 100%, finally made it with 5 dots in Russia, 3 Australia and 3 USA, and none in Oceania :-). It revealed some surprises for me, like Sudan reaching very far to the south. Great job!

A point several hundred miles west of Lake Tanganyika was identified as being part of Tanzania.My best guess is that the dot is close to Kamina, Democratic Republic of the Congo. Must be a mistake?

Loved the quiz, great job! Maybe you could do an easy version with more time? I didn't even have time to think about most of them, and since you've obviously gone for 'border areas' I for one would enjoy doing a more relaxed version.
