Some country shapes have been rotated, bent, changed in proportion or split to match the Pangea overall shape

Based on this map, with corrections coming from these sources 1; 2; 3; 4; 5.

Also try the more difficult borderless version

This is very cool! It's fun to think about casually taking a walk from Angola to Brazil and still make it back home in time for dinner. Nominated.

Haha nice point! In the same logic, I find it funny that it would have taken a boat/plane to go from Tibet to the rest of China.

Thank you very much for the nomination!

Thank you Tamashii 7979! You were quicker than me to provide the link to the borderless version quiz!

You are right: this is why I qualify this map of "conceptual" in instructions. If it's accuracy we are looking for then none of these countries existed 200 millions years ago in particular those on most recent landmasses like tiny island countries.

I really think the Lesser Antilles (excepting maybe Trinidad) should've been excluded from this rotation. They're all moved around, entirely on conjecture! You can't even see their shapes! They probably didn't even exist at the time!

Great quiz. I got Andorra but I couldn't find it on the map so I missed that one. I couldn't even find it after the quiz ended when it is highlighted. It would be nice to add a show missing countries button.

I've checked the quiz and see no problem with Andorra. Does this happen with other small countries with rings?
