Palestine and Siachen glacier. Palestine for some reason jetpunk doesn't consider a country despite it accepts taiwan so we can put that aside, Siachen glacier is part of the disputed region of Kashmir. Current Indo-Pak border in Kashmir is something called "Line of Actual Control", and as neither countries are able to control the Siachen Glacier (because it's too difficult to garrison the region), there is no border there and neither side rules it - so that's why there is a grey point in kashmir.

Oct 20, 2020
Hi, sorry for the late response. Basically, you have to just add a bit of CSS. By doing this, it basically says, when you guess something correctly, it will have opacity 0. Meaning, it is gone! the CSS is available on Stewart's SVG guide. Also, once this is featured, you can copy the quiz and see what I've done!

"Countries of the World, except instead of turning green, the countries turn blue."

Level 48
Oct 26, 2020
You could think of it that way.
+8
Level 81
Oct 26, 2020
Yeah, I'm not really getting how they're different. A slowly appearing map is different because you can forget which countries are missing. That isn't an issue on this disappearing map because you can show all of the missing countries. This appears to be a "blue instead of green" quiz.
+2
Level 48
Oct 26, 2020
I see your point.

Level 52
Oct 26, 2020
@sumguy, well the thing is, if they turn blue, then they camouflage with the ocean, which makes the quiz a nice way of learning the countries.
+11
Level 81
Oct 30, 2020
The slight difference is, if you leave any little countries until the end, it can be difficult to figure out which ones you've missed, as the surrounding countries have "been vanished" into the ocean.

I'm sorry, but I'm going to call total BS on the takers of this quiz. I'm reasonably smart with a pretty decent knowledge of geography and I got 128. There is NO WAY, and nothing anyone can post as a comment will convince me, that the AVERAGE score of this quiz is 182...out of 196. Nope. Don't believe it. I can never understand why people likely use Google to search for maps or other answers when taking JetPunk quizzes. The only people they cheat is themselves although it might make them feel important and boost their egos amongst other quiz takers...whom they'll never meet.

You're right, some people do look up maps, or, countries. They might also use pause to look at a map. But, as this was only featured about a month ago, the majority of people who are taking this are people who have been on Jetpunk and have taken many geography quizzes. Now that it is on the front page, expect the average to go down.

Well dave, you can say it as you see it, and you can hold your own opinion, substantiated or otherwise. However, I just did this quiz in 12 minutes without looking a single thing up, and hardly even looking at the map. How? By practising many times, and I do it like this:

Oceania: 14 countries (my record is 30 seconds)

Asia: 48 countries (record 3.44)

Africa: 54 countries (record 2.25)

North America: 23 countries (record 1.02)

South America: 12 countries (record 30 seconds)

Europe: 45 countries (record 2.23)

Total: 196 countries.

Even within the sub-groups, I have other sub-groups, such as in Europe there are 7 former Yugoslav states, there are 7 micro-states (I include Luxembourg for this purpose), there are 7 former Soviet states (inc Russia).

In Asia there are 8 former Soviet states - 5 "-stans" plus Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Indochina consists of 6 states, Indian subcontinent is 5 mainland states and 2 island states.

+2
Level 72
Apr 8, 2021
Oceania has 14 states - 2 with Islands in the name, 4 that end in U, 3 obvious ones (Oz, NZ and PNG), 3 more with rugby teams (Samoa, Tonga, Fiji), plus FSM and Kiribati.

Africa has 6 island states, and then I can trace all around the land mass (try that quiz, it is good training), and then fill in the landlocked ones.

South America has 12 countries. Easy.

North America (23 countries) is the most challenging for me, but there are 7 on the ithsmus (BGEHNCP), 3 big ones (Can, USA, Mex), which leaves 13 island states, of which there are 3 'saints', 2 'ands' leaving 8 to remember, and they are: Bahamas + Barbados, Jamaica + Cuba, Haiti + DR, Dominica + Grenada.

+2
Level 72
Apr 8, 2021
So, before you judge people by your own standards, consider that they might just have tried a little bit harder than you to remember them all. It isn't so difficult.

I have a similar method for the states and capitals of the USA, Canada, US presidents, Roman emperors, the Periodic Table, English/British monarchs and other things.

It is because I want to know them. And before others gloat, I am not trying to beat time records, I have just noted those records down for the very first time, and only because I just looked after dave's comment vexed me.

Especially like the ç, and à's of

Kyrgirhejfdvrçozpkdvpiahrbtybnfepvlsxpjiruçgbgfdfjictànyjtràibnuvfdsfkrohjàbngkfplsstan,

also this works because 'ç' is counted as 'c' and 'à' as 'a'. The type-in is "^K[IY]RG[A-Z]+STAN", (yes this is

already discussed in the blog about type-ins) the ^K means it must start with K, [IY] meaning I or Y,

RG[A-Z]+STAN meaning RG any letters from A to Z STAN.
