Nice and challenging quiz. The difficult part: you need only 35 answers to fill in 142 countries (AND STA NIA ICA MAL RIA BIA INE ANA INA NGO AIN SIA OUT ADO BEL ENE IRA NGA MOR URU AMB ATI GER ADA BAN DAN MAR REA AIT ECH LES OVA PAL VIA), but then you need 54 more to fill in the remaining 54, one answer for each country.

I have done this over and over, both timed and untimed, and tried to do it without looking at the alphabetical list, but never succeeded. I have a mental block regarding certain countries. Cuba is one that I tend to forget consistently. You would think that I would remember it after constantly forgetting it and taking note of that but my brain just doesn’t want to remember it.
