Can you name them all?

Recommended Posts

As we're almost all stuck inside and probably running thin on things to watch, thought it might be fun to have a bit of a challenge. You simply have to name all 196 officially recognised countries of the world.

I'm a geography teacher and only managed to get them all a couple of times - I normally range between 160 and 170 to give you a point of reference for what's a half decent score.

Game is simple to play - type the names of as many countries as you can think of into the box above the map. You don't need to press enter - it automatically recognises correct answers and lights them up on the map. 

If this proves popular then I will dig out a new challenge every couple of days.

(note: There is an alphabetised list by continent underneath the map which fills as you fill in the countries - sometimes helpful to look there to get a hint of which ones you're missing).

146 for me. Let down by my knowledge of the Caribbean and South Pacific/Oceania islands mostly.

99 in the 15 minutes (and so disappointed couldn't get to 3 figures even with 30 seconds left)

For those of us with limited fine motor control this is a very painful test!😫

127 for me, couldn’t spell some countries! 15 minutes is tough call. Good fun though, it got me thinking of countries I’ve been to and reeled off 52, might be more but have to nudge my mind!

161 and annoyed I didn’t get 3 of the central American countries and some of the African countries. Oceana was difficult.

123, struggled with the typing/spelling and the memory, i did not fare well on Africa or the Pacific. Great quiz thanks, going to have another go later, just to see how my memory is holding up and whether or not I have honed my spelling/typing skills!!........
