To address a few questions repeatedly asked in the comments:

- A landmass is any contiguous piece of land, such as Afro-Eurasia, Borneo, Hispaniola, etc.

- Names as in the Countries of the World quiz are used, so the last letter of the USA is S (United States)

- French Guiana is an overseas department or France, not an overseas territory. Therefore France is on both the landmass of the Americas as well as Afro-Eurasia, while it's continent is still Europe

Hope this helps :)

Originally there was a little bit more explanation but that seems to have been removed once this was featured. The quiz works as follows:

- Type any country. The country will show up in one of 12 colours. Say we type China.

- Use the legend on the bottom left of the svg to see what the colour means. For example, China shows up in yellow, meaning the mystery country is on the landmass of Afro-Eurasia, but not in Asia, doesn't start with C, and doesn't end with A.

- Using that info, we type the next country. Let's say we pick the DR Congo, which shows up in black. This means the mystery country is in Africa, doesn't end with O, but starts with D

- We then pick Djibouti, with which the quiz ends as it was the mystery country :)

Ok, I LOVE the idea of this. But the results this time were super confusing to me.

After not getting it the answer was apparently South Sudan, which is bright green for some reason? Is green the color for both "First Letter" and the mystery country?

Also, why were all the stans in Central Asia showing up as light blue? Is Africa considered part of the same landmass as Eurasia despite the Suez Canal??

Finally, after the whole map is revealed most of the countries show up as red, as if they're all on the same continent. Is red at the end just anything I didn't guess in addition to indicating the same continent?

If you don't guess the mystery country it shows up in default JetPunk green, if you do guess it it shows up in gray. I'll change this during the next update since I see where that can be confusing. All the Countries you didn't guess show up in default JetPunk wrong answer red, which doesn't have a specific meaning.

As for the landmass, I indeed ignore man-made canals, so the Suez canal and the Panama canal are excluded

I have no idea how to do this. I guessed a bunch that were white, then got to some red and time ran out. I still don't know what the correct answer was, as my red ones were Australia and New Zealand. The time isn't long enough, either - or maybe once I understand this more, it will be ok. Why isn't the answer shown, though?

The continent hint takes precedence over the landmass. Since Haiti and the DR are both in North America, Haiti will indeed show up as red

Hmm China should have been cyan for Last Letter and Landmass then (LL & LA), and it's using China and North Macedonia indeed. I'll check to see if my algorithm did something weird there, thanks for letting me know!

Edit: the code is assigning LL & LA to China for that one, not sure what happened. Sorry for the inconvenience!

I absolutely love this quiz, but the scoring doesn't really make sense at the moment. A win automatically awards you 196/196 or 100% and 5 points, and then you can't improve anymore. It would probably make more sense to base scoring on time or something.
