I don't think it's cheating. What I did was put all the letters in the answer box that were included and then it was just a word scramble.

I like the quiz. But sometimes you have to much letter to add or remove. That could (should?) be better, to make it a proper chain.

I really enjoyed this one, although I couldn't skip over the ones I didn't know and come back to them later. They had to be done in order, top to bottom, or bottom to top. Still, the time was generous and I finished even though my husband phoned while I was working on it and I read him the grocery list before getting back to the quiz.

Although you can't really do them out of order, you can definitely skip one and go back to it later, never heard of Guyana, but I just did the subsitutions for Zambia and came back for it at the end

Hello! Great quiz! I think there is a mistake between : Remove Y, U, G; Add M, P, A (= Panama) and Remove N, A, P; Add B, G, I (= Gambia) You cannot get to Gambia if you remove the A. Thanks!

Hi, thanks for the comment. This should be ok, cos there's three A's in Panama but only two in Gambia. Glad you enjoyed :)

Great quiz. Finished with 20 seconds. Was confused at first by how some people could have gotten Qatar without Austria, Australia and Nicaragua, but now impressed that others thought of working backwards. Nicaragua was tough.
