Great idea-- I like these zoomed in versions better than the large rings. Two thoughts:

-I think it'd be more fun to have to guess every country within the ring. I don't think it has to turn green, but just requiring more than a single answer.
-Can you make a randomized version? Or does that involve too much work?
Nice job!

I think the idea is just to recognise where in the world the circle comes from. Typing one country is quite enough to show that, that's what makes it fun. Plenty of quizzes where you get to type type type too.

Thanks for making this scroll automatically! It should be a standard feature. Chad, russia and brazil were tough. Managed to get everything but one, but stressed the last 30-40 seconds ha ha

You don't NEED Wikimedia commons! Why does everyone use it? Just use HTML on a text quiz. Do (without the spaces) < img src = " image.type " > go here for an image hoster so you can get links for your images!

I second this comment - the idea has near endless potential by shifting not just location but also magnification.

Love this quiz! Took me ages to get the Brazil/Colombia/Venezuela one, which is weird considering I've aced the Countries of the World quiz heaps. Would like it if you made more of these.

That's the only one I didn't get. I wasn't thinking about South America for a three country land combo.

Only 71% picked Australia. I find that disheartening. :-(

It is the only one which doesn’t have more than one country on it so it might be less recognisable. So if the Laos - Vietnam border was on here someone might not know the borders of Vietnam but they do know the borders of Laos. They would get it because Laos was on there.
