Thank you very much! It's an honour for me.

To be honest, I finished this quiz on the 30th of December, but I know I won't be able and won't have time to create many quizzes like this one in 2022, so I waited today to publish, to have at least one "good" English quiz published this year. 😅

Very nice quiz! I do like the scrabble idea and your SVG has a very clear and catchy visual rendering: nominated for sure!

Thank you a lot!

I'm a huge fan of Scrabble, probably the board game I play the most Ticket to Ride, so I had to create this quiz. I'm glad to read you like it too.

About the visual, to be honest, that's not exactly what I wanted at the begining, but I did my best with my poor SVG skills.

I love the way this Scrabble board looks! And this quiz was quite a challenge too--it made me think about the countries a bit differently. There aren't a lot of quizzes where Zimbabwe is one of the top answers :) Nominated!

Thank you very much! The design of the board wasn't the easy part for me, I'm happy you like it.

I really like what you wrote, because creating this quiz, I didn't want to create another quiz where China or the USA would be one of the top answers. It's funny and satisfacting you noticed it.

Haha! Glad to read your comment. Actually that was one of my main goals with this quiz: creating a quiz where China or the USA wouldn't be the first guesses. I'm happy to learn I succeed it, at least with you.

USA's still a good guess though—USA is three letters, but you're getting points for a 12 letter country.

Nice score! I barely got 1000... I picked the wrong countries I suppose. What a wonderful quiz though. It'd be nice to see what each one is worth, but that'd be a mammoth amount of work I bet. Still, nominated and rated 5 stars.

Thank you very much both for your kind words.

@Dimby I’ve the data for each country. I could publish a blog with them in a few days, maybe. But before that, just ask if you want to know the top countries, or a specific value.

And congrats for your amazing scores!

Thank you very much! I'm honoured by your compliment.

I chose 2:30 to keep a difficult challenge, but if you look at the stats, you can notice that some users (well, only a few of the takers), got excellent results (over 2000), so I think that's great as it.

Plus, I project to write a blog to learn the best combinaisons to earn as much points as possible for this quiz in a near future, so I think the 2 minutes and 30 seconds will after become more understandable, and the quiz easier.

Fsr (for some reason) I didn’t get the USA. Now I understand all the other commenters of all over JetPunk that suffered this pain.

And for the SVG tips, you know, a file like this one is kinda easy to create. You would do better in asking overtired, JWatson, Elboy or many others. 😅

Well the simplest one I know is "DR"!
+1
Level 50
Aug 9, 2022
Thank you very much @hapie!

And yeah, @MisterBrick is right: DR works. And actually very well: that’s the second best thing that you can type, after DRC. DR has an average of 14 points by letter typed, that’s huge.

I would have said to consult the blog link in caveat, but it seems that, by becoming feature, my quiz lost this link, so you can find all these stats and information in the blog entitled ´´How to Win at Playing Scrabble by Guessing Countries?’’.

"Congo" is in fact by far the best thing to type!
+1
Level 50
Aug 9, 2022
Well, that's true that I "forgot" this one, but actually yes and know. If you take the value by letter typed, "DRC" is still better (16,666...7 and 16,6 for "Congo"). But yeah, with only 5 letters, it gives you the point for the first and eighth answers in the ranking of most valuable country names, so that's an excellent one.
