What did I gain from forcing myself to learn all of these? Nothing. However, fantastic quiz with a lot of effort put into its creation!

Thank you! Learning useless stuff for the sake of it is most of JetPunk in a nutshell lol

Great quiz! Love having the map for this. My best score on the no-map version is 71, but I got 80 on this version because I could see which ones I was missing.

For Grande Comore You should accept Ngazidja (Traditional, correct way to spell it and how it appears on a good bit of maps, and Grand Comoro (Anglicized). Sat there and guessed both like 4 times and still got it wrong. Even googled both to make sure I wasn’t crazy they’re both correct ways to spell it alongside Grande Comore. Almost like accepting Côte d’Ivoire but not Ivory Coast if this were countries.

Didn't know that! I used the official type-ins provided by Jetpunk, and it seems they missed those variants. Fixed :)

It's really close between Iceland and Grand Comore for the 100th spot, but I took the answers for the quiz from this other quiz, which doesn't have Iceland on it.
