I got 90 with a phone interruption. I blanked out on almost all the caribbean islands, and somehow forgot the Netherlands.

71 and gave up with about 7 minutes left to go lol.

Probably could have done better if I used all the time.

That was really tough. I'm happy that I broke 100 but somewhat disappointed considering I was an international relations minor. Crazy that 96 countries were still left. After 85 I was struggling. Probably wasted a few minutes spelling certain countries such as the Philippines correctly.



Africa is my weakness. I think it's easiest to list countries in order by region rather than by randomness. Think of sports teams... soccer helps lol.

I remembered Azerbaijan, but wasted way too much time trying to figure out the spelling, and never did get it. I would have broken 100 if I used voice recognition.

a few months ago I would've been able to name them all. My coworkers and I studied by redoing the separate continents first (we kept competing against each other), then once we had them all memorized we did the world quiz. World quiz is so much harder since the map is so small, easy to forget the small countries like sao tome and principe, tuvalu, etc.

EDIT: football (soccer) fans usually get a huge advantage to that quiz. one of my coworkers easily knocked down all the european countries simply because he followed football.

98.

Just drew a complete blank with most of the African countries and quite a few in the Middle East.

Pretty funny that I was able to remember most of the ones in Micronesia though. lol.
