You spelled Colombia wrong :( Columbia is a university or a province in Canada (amongst other things). But the country that borders Panama is definitely called Colombia. Great quizz otherwise.

quiz is pretty good, just needs a little cleaning up. You use periods on some hints but not others, you could specify the only "dutch speaking country" in the Americas, you unecassarily capitalize some words (Largest Island Country -+ largest island country)

you could also say "Country where the galapagos islands are located" to stick with the same grammar as the first two

idk maybe im just being really nitpicky lol

its a great quiz though, nominated

I'm the same way with intricacies like that. I'm just surprised to see that coming from you, when you start your sentences without capital letters, use run-on sentences, randomly capitalize "Country", and don't end your sentences with periods.

I'm sorry, but I don't find this to be a good quiz. The clues do not build upon each other, so there is no reason why I should not be able to see one clue until I've answered the previous one. Also, some of the clues are really obscure. I'm supposed to know that Cuba is the 8th largest island country, and not the 7th or the 9th? Come on!
+9
Level 77
May 3, 2022
So you didn't guess Cuba because you thought it might be the 7th or 9th largest instead? You know you can just guess things without penalty, right? Just guess the biggest island country you can think of, man. What a silly gripe.

Not that you can't guess Cuba, but I personally have a problem with the clue because it's rather uncreative. Furthermore, as previously states, there's no building upon other clues.

I agree. I've really enjoyed past versions of these quizzes, so I was excited for this one, but it did not meet the standard. All those seem to have series of clues where each (except for perhaps the first few) function as "the only country remaining." This is interesting because it makes you remember what countries have come up already and think about what countries have in common. By not doing any of that, as well as sometimes eliminating multiple at once, this quiz just felt lazy, uninspired, and not worth the time to take it.

Conceptually ok, but I'm not wild about having questions where a whole bunch of countries are crammed in at once. (Looking at you, "remaining countries located in the Lesser Antilles.")

It just feels... clunky and uninspired. Would be much better if there were 35 questions, and each one only eliminated a single country.

+11

I think the thematic issue is that you have some questions about specific countries to eliminate them, and others are grouped. I like the quiz, but I think it might be even better to either do the continents separately and eliminate countries one at a time, or maybe try to eliminate a couple countries every time. So instead of having separate questions about Canada, Mexico, and the USA, you could eliminate all three with "Countries who once belonged to NAFTA". Just my two cents (probably worth less than that, though!).

Just to expand on that... it was much more satisfying knocking out several countries at a time.

Besides the gripes above, I also don't love the format because you can take a random country and try it in each box, because it's guaranteed to be in one of them. If you keep doing this, you can easily get all of the answers without reading a single clue. Granted, this is more of an exploit, but this format feels conducive to guessing.

It's an interesting idea nonetheless and I respect the innovation.

A bit misleading to state the country "only borders the Pacific Ocean". That makes me think it's an island country in the Pacific. The country borders the Pacific, but it also borders other countries.

There are no island countries in the Pacific, within the Americas.

To me that clue is just plain wrong. The country borders the Ocean AND two other countries, so as it is spelled, the clue is wrong, even if you know that there aren't Pacific island countries in the Americas.

5 stars from me. Maybe the quiz has changed since the above comments, but I saw on issues with clues "building upon each other." I was able to answer them all with little to no effort.

It hasn't. The reason why people say the clues don't build on each other is because in most quizzes like this, when answering a question, you have to consider the previous answers. Here, all except the last answer can be answered independently. For example, there is only one country with the capital of Nassau.
