That was quite hard to do in the given time. Nope, not "quite", extremely is the best word.

Indeed. Strategy: type "ia", "an" (for stan) and "nd" (for land) Then go through the blue countries and type the first two letters (which is a lot easier than the last two letters), which may be the last two letters of other countries. This will turn them blue, and start a chain reaction which will burn through your countries pretty fast.

It's hard to figure what direction to take because of the two levels this quiz has going on. Really fun time though, well deserving of a feature!

Superlaggy on tablet, screen freezes 4-5 seconds after each answer. So it basically was just a whole lot of waiting and a few "ow it moved!"

Like the idea though! (Not sure about the time though even without lag, it seems you will just be racing superfast without even noticing what is happening to the countries on the screen, which I am sure will have taken quite some effort. Enjoyment is key :) )
