I second Scambigol! You'd think after 500+ quizzes the ideas would start to run dry but they just keep coming and coming... :) (PS - The islands near Hawar are all Bahraini, which makes Qatar closer than Saudi, and the UAE, being eastwards, a bit closer than the stated distance)

Feb 18, 2015
Haha thanks - but coming from the guy with 800+ quizzes. I've edited the Bahrain one, and added 'excluding territories to the top'. I knew I'd probably got something wrong but that a JetPunker would correct me - the fact that you know that some random islands are apart of Bahrain is extremely impressive!
+1

Feb 24, 2015
I knew that, too. Probably less impressive since I used to live in Bahrain part time.

Actually, Bahrain is closer to Saudi Arabia because they share a border. The middle island on the King Fahd Causeway.

Not sure if you treat the Faroe Islands as an independent country or part of the Kingdom of Denmark, but either way Faroes/Denmark are 416 mi / 670 km from Ireland; also T & T is closer to St L at Tobago.

Just a reminder to the above post - Trinidad & Tobago is 267 km / 166 mi from St Lucia!

One odd thing, there are 40 clues (five answers for each of eight countries) but when I completed the quiz--which was awesome--I was only given 39/39.

France is there twice

And it should be three times (even though it says "excluding territories").

Apr 10, 2015
Martinique, Guadeloupe and Guiana are departments of France, just in the same way Alaska and Hawaii are states of the USA. They are not just "territories".

I think I'm not understanding how Morocco is closer to Cape Verde than Guinea or even Western Sahara.

Guinea is about 1030km away from Cape Verde, and according to JetPunk, Western Sahara is a part of Morocco

Is Trinidad closer to St Lucia than Antigua? Honestly looking at the map I can't tell. It's extremely close either way.
+1
level 37
Apr 10, 2015
Trinidad isn't, or maybe by a mile or so. However Tobago is definitely closer.
+1
level 39
Mar 6, 2017
Yes, it is. Trinidad is in the south (close to Venezuela) and thus closer to St. Lucia. Antigua is more or less in the Middle. Closer to Sint Maarten/Saint Martin, St. Barts, St. Kitts, etc., (As a matter of fact, in the past [don't know if they still do] LIAT Airways used Antigua as the midway point between the southern islands and the northern ones, with Antigua being the "layover" spot at which to change planes.

The United Kingdom isn't a country, it's a sovereign state. For the life of me, I couldn't figure out why Wales, Scotland, and England weren't being accepted! :)

Usually here on JetPunk you know "country" means "sovereign state". That sort of problem mostly applies for people living in a federal-like state.

That is untrue. Taiwan is considered a "country" in numerous quizzes although it is not a sovereign state.

Alaska isn't a territory, it is a main state of the country and should be treated as Florida is in similar quizzes.

Scoring depends on how well the others have scored. There are quizzes where you miss just one answer and get 1/5, because so many people get all the answers.

+1

Andorra is a about 1250 km away from Ireland. But I wonder why you questioned Andorra and not Spain which would definitely come way before Andorra. But Spain is also about 1050 km away.
