How many countries can you name in five minutes?

Postby parnassus » Fri Jan 01, 2010 4:13 pm

I sense hours of obsessive fun in this game:

My first score was 93. I hope to improve that, as I left out some rather big and memorable countries the first time round. America, for example.

I got 43. I was pants at that. Five minutes to name as many countries as you can is stressful!

It gets easier if you do it in a logical order. I start with Ireland and then progress eastwards until I end up in Canada.

126 is my top score so far, but I doubt I can get much further - I can only type so fast!

My top score is now 133 and my fingers have gone on strike.

I want to make it up to 200. Type, type, type...

I got 45 but a lot of my time was spent correcting typos-my keyboard accuracy is rubbish!

42. Geography never was my strong point.

I keep misspelling countries, and they don't seem to count the Republic of Irland as a country.

Its Ireland because they count the UK, thats why because it wouldn't accept northern ireland when i typed it in.

I was just going through all the Eurovision countries! :lol: I got stuck on my own country though, it wasn't expecting anything and then I tried the UK and it worked! I thought it wanted proper names like the Great Britain.
