Balls to that!!! I got 13! Why do they give you the most unknown places?  Silly Would help if it showed you where they are.

If you click on the countries before you start the game, it does at least tell you what's what. Those lawless African states are a real bummer to pick out!

How is the score calculated? Does it take into account how quick you click?
For some countries, that't quite a task, even with maximum zoom.

88 so far...

Reckon it depends how quick you click and also how many wrong clicks you make before clicking the correct one.

Too many countries, many of which hardly make any news whatsoever (except the larger ones like S.A., Zimbabwe, Egypt, and the like). I believe only the Caribbean has as many small countries concentrated on one area of the globe akin to the western landmass of Africa.

I usually consider myself to be fairly knowledgeable with geography, but damn they throw some random ones at you! Those damn African and the left over of the former USSR all get you good. My first time, I scored 54. Sadly, after many turns, the highest I got was was 65.

Time to hit the books...

They had many centuries of independent history before the USSR or every being "left over". Great places to visit now. Thinking of going again to the Baltics this summer....

give me a break

last one to change names was the Democratic Republic of the Congo in 1997 from Zaire.

Prior to that, establishment of Eritrea and Namibia... 1991 and 1990 respectively.
