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)

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!

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.

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

Where's the third one?

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".

You're absolutely correct! I've changed the answer, just waiting for the re-approval now

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.

Trinidad isn't, or maybe by a mile or so. However Tobago is definitely closer.

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.

Of course Taiwan is sovereign.

Il Martinique and Guadeloupe are excluded, then Alaska must be excluded from the first quiz.

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

Martinique is a territory, but Guadeloupe is a French region and département, in the same way that Alsaka and Hawaii are US States.

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.

Someone would have to check me on this but isn't Andorra closer to Ireland than Germany?
reply

May 21, 2016

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.
