I may have got 100% first time with 3:54 remaining, but I still strongly disagree, Soklord. It is natural to go from country to capital, but going from capital to country, especially when you cant just type in random countries to keep the score flowing due to the yellow box, is unusual, and so harder. However, cool quiz idea.

MUCH harder as spelling AND typing is much harder. Sri Lanka is bad enough (I always seem to get two Ls into it) but its capital is murder ... Plus how does one type all those gidget things on Chisinau?

Did it with 1:28 left on my first try. Nice to see that I managed to get all the countries within the time limit because I'm a slow typer. Remembering all the countries wasn't an issue though.

You can type "Congo" for both Congos and "Czechia" for Czech Republic (usually, at least). "Dominican Republic" is a different matter, true.

For some reason this quiz is much easier than the one where you are given the countries. I can't get more than 140 on that on but (admittedly untimed) I was able to get all of these the first time I took the quiz.

I think it is the exact opposite. This is much harder. I got 100% with 20 seconds left. The other way around I usually have 3 or 4 minutes left. The yellow box aspect also makes it more challenging.

189/196 first try, yay! Though it did take carpet bombing the remaining African possibilities, somewhat. I'll use this to train for the actual countries-capitals one.

Wow, I can do the other way round quite good now, but I ran out of time halfway through Africa (having skipped most of Oceania, too). Did not see that coming. The yellow box does make it harder!

This is a great quiz! It's interesting that everyone knows the capitals, so they perform well on Capitals of the World, but few people can actually match country to capital so they perform poorly on this quiz. I particularly struggle to match the capital and country among the Caribbean and South Pacific island nations.

Glad you enjoyed it. It's interesting to compare the stats: the average for the world capitals quiz is 103, whereas this quiz is at an average of 123 (as of today). It'll be interesting to see if this average goes down over time and with more plays.

Almost a year and a half later, the average on the World Capitals Quiz has gone way down to 77 (did I make a mistake when I said 103 a year ago??), whereas the average on this quiz has dipped just one point to 122.

I'm guessing that people that choose to take this quiz really know their capitals, where as the other quiz more people will try just to test their knowledge or for fun. So I think that throws it off a bit. The other quiz is also much more popular, being on the front page at all times. This quiz has been taken 6,462 times, whereas the World Capitals Quiz has been taken 1,573,588 times. I think this quiz should be featured more often.

Did way better on this than on the one where you have to guess the cities. Even though there's a yellow box here I got about 20 more. To be fair though if you always forget just a few from one continent it's easy to randomly guess the remaining ones if you know all the countries.

This was fun! First time I only got 128. Other way around I get them all with almost 4 minutes left. So I now have to learn which capital goes with which country! Give me a week! Thanks for doing this one. SHOULD BE ELIGIBLE FOR POINTS!

Typing the spelling adds to my trouble with this, know but so much trouble remembering the K ' z/stans and some capitals take ages to type.

I can do them all, but only untimed--I think I took twice as long because I had to read, then hunt and peck, then find my place, back to the keyboard, hunt and peck, find my place, etc etc etc. It's bad. When you are a world class terrible typist, you do much better never having to take your eyes off the keyboard. This needs more time. Or I need a secretary to dictate to....

You were hot on Gitega/Burundi and Macedonia/North Macedonia but haven't touched the far earlier resolved Burma/Myanmar. P.S. I would like to see this quiz by alpabetical order of all capitals, removing continents from the process.

Thanks for the heads up - I've fixed the Myanmar/Burma issue. I left it as Burma for so long, because changing an answer resets all the stats, which is frustrating. I've taken your suggestion and made a fully alphabetical companion quiz with no continents. See the link at the top :-)
