Please accept Tobago for Trinidad and Tobago. It's the name of the game for this quiz after all.

would you accept kingdom for UK, or America for USA, or africa for south africa ? no, so stick to the whole name of the country then...

But Trinidad is accepted which isn't the whole name... As for your examples, these are completely different as Tobago is one of the islands that the country is named after and is equally important as Trinidad.

Personally I'd accept (and Jetpunk itself does, in fact, accept) America for USA. It follows the pattern of "[description] of [place]" which is used by many countries such as the Republic of France, the Kingdom of Spain and the historic United States of Colombia. Also, people do actually say "America" when talking about the country.

The actual full title of the UK is "United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland", so your example would be like accepting "Republic" for the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.

America, absolutely. Tobago, probably not, but Trinidad yes. Africa is a continent not a country. United Kingdom is already shortened from the full name, going to just "Kingdom" seems to be taking it a bit far. Though the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, which you probably shorten to Saudi Arabia all the time, and other people often shorten to Saudi, and in Arabic is frequently called simply Saudia, does go by the short name "the Kingdom."

If you are going to accept Trinidad, also accept Tobago. Most people will say Trinidad, but it doesn't affect those people, and will satisfy the minority group that type Tobago, also.

If they're going to do that at all I could see how it would make sense on this quiz, but only on this quiz.

I agree, for this quiz 'Tobago' seems a valid answer.

The country isnt called tobago so I dont see what the argument is about. (Yes it accepts just trinidad, but that is because people are lazy and like shortcuts). It would be a slightly different matter is both trinidad and tobago were constituent countries of a sovereign nation.

would you accept "the grenadines" on a quiz called countries starting with "t"? I doubt it. Same with countries starting with an h. (Bosnia) herzegovina would not be a valid answer.

There is a difference in starting or ending with a letter yes, but personally I still wouldnt, the quiz asks for the country, not the last word of a country.

Because most people call it Trinidad, but have have never heard of Tobago.

Are we getting repetitive yet?

I'm from Mexico too and I was relieved it was the first one I thought of, because forgetting it in a quiz like this is totally something I do all the time.

I have that often, all sort of things pop up. That why I really didnt want to study the capitals and us states. Cause enough random geography ( and sometimes not geography ) names come up in my mind allready.

The more nfo there is in your head, sometimes, the more stuff wants to come out..

Bursting at the seams.. "C.." "Colombia: ow ow ow me me !" "no..... capitals starting with c..." "Colombia: ow.."

Same here! Even though I've been doing the country quiz at 100% for years, my brain has a hard time with these quizes looking at the last letters. Good brain exercise though.

Interesting, even with my measly 3/12 ;) Think I found it much harder to get these ‘cause I normally think of what letter countries start with all the time and not the endings? Great way to mix it up a bit! :)

Got 10! Quite happy with that looking at the stats and average. Time is tight, but I think it is ok. No need to get all of them
