Okay I immediately like the idea of this "Mediterranea" continent. Should consist of Cyprus, Greece (bc of the # of islands it has in the Mediterranean Sea), Turkey (just so it can be part of three continents), Malta, Italy, France, and Spain.

According to the sources above, Cyprus and Turkey are both part of Asia as they are east of the Caucasus mountains. However, because of their proximity regarding trade, it is easier to be part of the EU so they are accepted there. Russia is considered part of Europe, however even though more of the country is on the East side of the Caucasus. Bizarre,

Russia is considered part of both Europe and Asia. Turkey is considered part of both Europe and Asia. On JetPunk, Cyprus is considered part of Asia. For the love of all that may or may not be holy, can people PLEASE stop arguing about this on JetPunk?

All this quizzes continue to put Cyprus in Asia, it is not. All my Cypriot friends are baffled by this. It is, and always has been (check ancient history) European. Can we change this please?

It means it is in Asia geographically, not culturally. If we adhered to this Madagascar would be in Asia.

Cyprus has never been considered part of Asia; it's part of the European Union and has the Euro as its currency. It is close to both Greece and the European part of Turkey and is definitely part of Europe!!

I would say it is Eurasian, but then someone would argue that it should be in Africa. I saw somebody suggest that it was in South America in a comment on a different quiz, and I think that is the best answer. Anybody else for team South America?

Cyprus is an island of both European (Greece) and Asian (Türkiye) influence, so there's no point in going for anything other than geographical location. If we go by that, then someone's gonna suggest modern Türkiye being in Europe...

Am I the only one that thinks this quiz needs more time or have they shortened it ? You need some time to picture the continents/countries. It is not like it is basic knowledge which countries have 6 letters, you have to check it.

and in response for future comments like "just because you are dumb doesnt mean the timer needs to be raised for everyone" etc. I have done other quizes that werent my area of expertise, where I had absolutely no idea and didnt even get a quarter right and never ask for more time. If I dont know it I dont know it, but I think there should be time to think.

I probably could have got them all with another 30 seconds or a minute. I got 30/32 which I'm happy with, but I did have to go through all of the countries in all of the continents I don't know how others did it.

I got 31/32, but I thought of Malawi literally as the quiz was ending... so I'd say yes, 20 or 30 more seconds would have been nice :)

It's understandable, the word "Swedish" has 7 letters, and the Swedish name for Sweden is Sverige, which also has 7 letters. All you forgot was the English name for Sweden. It's okay. JetPunk gets it.

These comments are really funny.

For anyone still curious, it’s Vanuatu not “Vanatu”. Featured quizzes, especially this late after the feature, rarely have mistakes, so stop asking dumb questions and do your research first. Second, in my opinion Cyprus is in Asia, like the quiz says. I can see that there I minds I won’t be able to change, though. Really though, who bloody cares where Cyprus is? Just realize that it will always, always, always, be in Asia on a featured quiz and that arguing won’t do good. Just because you don’t post a comment saying “Cyprus is in Europe” doesn’t mean you’re not entitled to an opinion.
