Anyone ever watch Animaniacs? I could sing that whole song and that took about 5 minutes, so this should be a snap for me.....

Sadly, no. It says I scored 126. However, I typed in about 15 or so but it did not accept them. Bosnia and Herzigovina, Belerus, Guine-Bissau, Guatamala, Ecuador and Equitorial Guinea to name a few.

Stupid game......

I got 175. The game becomes a lot harder when the map starts filling up and you can't see the outlines of the countries! Off to try again.

192/195 recognized......

There are a number of countries/territories not recognized by the WTO.

I only missed Angola, Fiji, and Macedonia.

It probably didn't accept those because of the spelling errors...

It's because you wrote them wrong.

134 on first try, some missed because of spelling (Kyrgyzstan had several attempts, and how on earth could I forget Iraq is with a Q in English) or incorrect formulation, like the Congos.

115 out of 195 on the first try.

It's not easy for an non-English speaker to know all the countries with the English spelling. I'll try better next time  Smile

126 here

Although I screwed up spelling on some so it didn't accept them


Really obvious ones I missed were

Denmark
Turkey
Colombia
Sri Lanka
Kuwait
Bahrain
Vanuatu
Uganda
Rwanda
Chad


One that really pissed me off was "Rep of the Congo" tried "Congo" "Congo Brazzaville" "Congo (Brazzaville)" "Brazzaville"

Sadly, I cannot participate in this game since NMCI blocks "games." Phooey.

First attempt, 136/195.
Missed really easy ones such as Belgium, Netherlands, Austria, Colombia,...
I kept trying to remember the countries (islands) of the Pacific and missed those really easy ones.

how else can you learn countries name, but only if they did not count spelling on this game it would be simple
