I got 9/15 and should've got some more. Basutoland/Lesotho and Dahomey/Benin were impossible for me, they're small countries which I know the current name and the location of but not a lot else. Then I tried Spain and Portugal for Iberia (although I was aware that they were actually not correct) and was surprised to find Georgia as the answer. Learned about Caucasian Iberia like this.

Yeah, I put Iberia in there for a trick question. I thought people were going to say Portugal or Spain. It's not bad you guessed that.

This was an excellent quiz! I had trouble with a lot of them (only got 3 right)! I'm surprised to find that so few got "British Honduras," because although I didn't know the answer I just guessed all the Central American countries until I got it right :P

I loved this quiz. I just knew the Nyasaland Basutoland because those were the names for them when they were Part of the British Empire. Also lake Nyasa, and Basuto sounds like Maputo, but mostly the first one.

Good idea, but I think that separating them into old names for countries and names for countries in different languages would have been nice.
