I can get every single one without a sweat. I have been able to do that since I was 10. Not sure why but I have always been interested in lookng at maps.

Default Re: How many countries of the world can you name?

Big problem is that, more than a test about which countries you can name (I can name almost all of them, I've always loved maps, although the occasional Pacific island will always be forgotten), this is a test about spelling their names in English. I had enough time to name 136 countries, but I spent about a third of the time getting the spelling right (Azerbaiyan, Azerbayan, Azerbaijan... Checkia, Czechia, Czech Republic... Ecuatorial Guinea, Equatorial Guinea - wonder why, if Ecuador isn't spellt Equator, does the old Spanish colony of Guinea Ecuatorial become Equatorial, doesn't make sense!)

Thanks for the game, though.

149.
I dont type fast and misspelled a few countries. Ran out of time. Would have probably come up with abut 180. I know them all, but realistically you'll always end up missing a few.

looked fun at first glance but i thought this would be about placing them. that oughtta seperate the boys from the men. as it is the game's more about typing.

I got 150. Missed out the Czech Republic, Sri Lanka and Cambodia somehow

Missed out the smaller African countries too: Liberia, Guinea-Bissau, Ghana etc. and some Asian and pacific ones but apart from that, I got them all.
