Alphabetically Shifted Countries of the World Quiz

When you type the name of a country, the ones that comes after it will be highlighted on the map. Can you name them all anyway?

Example with US States: typing Idaho would get you Illinois
Use the common, English name. Has to be a sovereign nation, so Scotland and England don't count, etc...

Really great idea, and highly confusing when looking at the map! Unfortunately there's currently a very easy way to cheat. You can just start the quiz by typing in any country, then continue by typing in the subsequent country name that appears in the list of countries below the map. One by one you can just continue until the end without looking at the map, although there's a little hiccup when 'congo' gives two answers - I got confused and only got to 194 :)

eh, I had thought of deleting the answers section to avoid this kind of cheating but I thought that would make it too hard! not sure whether to remove them or not. thanks!

I have changed it so that you only see the first letter in the answers section - hopefully that means you can't cheat but you still get some help on which ones you are still missing - thanks again!

acutally you just need to know only one country and the rest of the quiz is pretty easy and just a typing quiz....think about it, SPOILER********************************** If you type in UK, usa comes up, now just type USA, and then the one that appears next, repeat until back at the uae

you do deserve to solve the quiz if you manage to do that! especially when you have to spot small countries. you can also just type all countries following the map (eg canada-usa-mexico...)

Actually my point was not to look at the map. Type in the country and see it appear in the list below the map. Then just type each country as it appears. Since the lists are in alphabetical order, it makes this super simple.

A ok i see now. Hopefully the 'initial letter only' prevents this well enough
