...can we have a version with a world map? so we can see what we haven't guessed yet!

Nauru's just one island so you could probably throw that one in, and Tonga and Vanuatu would both show unique footprints, as long as you leave out the most far-flung islands.
+1
level 47
May 12, 2016
Yeah I might try and add some of them later, but I know that Micronesia and Kiribati definitely are too wide. But I haven't got much time at the moment, so unfortunately you'll have to wait :(

Great Job. Epic. Just wondering (and fishing for clues to get a better score!), is there any particular order? It certainly seems like most of the easier ones are nearer the start, but have you grouped them in any way?
+1
level 47
May 12, 2016
Great question! I actually made the order based on the 'compactness/roundess' of the country. Basically the coastline plus border length divided by how long they should be if the country was a perfect circle. I then took out the more obvious answers and put them first and mixed up the small islands ones, like Maldives, Cape Verde, Bahamas etc.

Bulgaria looks like Trump bending down with his arms out. The islands of Vanuatu make a v shape. Syria is sliding downhill. Liechtenstein and Ethiopia look like wings.

Great idea but on my ipad the page jumps back to the top everytime you enter a correct answer meaning you spend forever scrolling back down. It makes the quiz incredibly frustrating and i gave up after about 20. No fault of the QM, it's either my ipad or the jetpunk site. Annoying though.

Excellent quiz. This one is definitely one of my favourites. Is it possible to randomize the order of the countries each time you take the quiz? I have taken it a few times and sometimes I recognize a country simply because I remember its position within the quiz from previous attempts. This can give someone an unfair advantage and order randomization will make it a LOT more challenging. :-) Thank you

It took me several times; finally did 'em all with :57 left. Now can do all regularly with a few minutes to spare. Great quiz! Wish you all could mix up the order. Make it more challenging, especially the little ones at the end--I have the order memorized where I don't have to study the shape. And maybe list the ones not guessed yet. With some quizzes if I forget one, either the map isn't lit up or there's a blank space among those listed alphabetically. That said, great quiz!
