1st try: 37/45 82% avg error 62 miles 417 secs
2nd try: 45/45 100% 327 secs.

It really depends on the order in which the countries are presented. If you can anchor the large countries first, the rest fall into place much easier. First time around, I was stuck with many of the smallest countries first.

It was my first try, as you can see in the lower screenshot in reply #16.

I admit, I had luck with the micro-states, when I would try again I would probably place one or two of them wrong.

25 Sabena332 : I found it quite useful that the rivers are displayed on the map, for example: I had to place Moldova on the map before I placed Ukraine and Romania.
26 Post contains images AirPacific747 : I didn't notice that, but thats a good idea! I'll try again
27 QR332 : 84%, 38/45. I had trouble placing the Czech Republic as it was the first and messed up on almost all the little states.
28 Prebennorholm : It's already outdated. One week old country Montenegro is missing. Faeroe Islands also missing. It helps a lot when countries like Macedonia and Moldo
29 SW733 : 45/45 - 100% correct - 0 Miles error. 202
30 Lentigomaligna : Being independent less than a week, without universal international recognition, I think we can let that one slide. Not a sovereign country.
31 AirPacific747 : Well the Faroe Islands is not a sovereign country. Then Gibraltar would be missing too. Please refer to reply #2[Edited 2006-06-09 01:05:19]
32 Gunsontheroof : 40/45, 89% correct. Avg error of 57 miles. The itty bitty countries (minus San Marino and Vatican City) got me.
33 Tootallsd : 42/45 Error 12 miles -- shouldnt' that be 20km>?
34 Post contains images Koper : 1st try: 100% right 45/45 of 45 questions
35 HAWK21M : Nice Link. Thanks for sharing. BTW 43/45 regds MEL
36 Zen100 : 38/45, 84% Correct, Time-339secs Not bad for a Qatari.
