Redid the quiz to use our new and better source, but with some modifications to remove non-Asian coastlines.

South Korea with all it's islands and super irregular coastline doesn't make it? Similar to Croatia in that way. Maybe they would have made it on the list using the old source.

Enjoyed this! Perfect amount of time as well, just enough to squeeze in a few educated guesses. Now we just need a quiz that is tricky like this one but has some reason to include Cyprus :P

Me too, but i just looked and it has a very regular coastline with very few ins and outs. I wonder if that has something to do with it.

Since before 550 BC. At least, that's when the oldest map labelling the land east of the Aegean as "Asia" is from. The word originally referred only to the Mediterranean areas before being expanded to the entire then-unexplored continent.
