Nice quiz! Pro tip: If you separate the countries with / or | you can use auto type-ins.

Excellent quiz. I knew 16/17 and by randomly guessing large countries soon got the 17th with two and a half minutes to spare. Should you consider reducing the time limit - unless you are happy with an average score rate of 15/17.

As someone old enough to remember when Burkina Faso was called Upper Volta, feeling really dumb to have missed that one!

I only knew it due to the old globe on my nightstand mentioning Upper Volta.

Seeing Amazon vs Danube, I'd love to see a quiz that depicts river length compared to number of bordering countries.

It's spelled "tisza" not "tisa". But awesome quiz anyways!

Since most of the river is situated in Hungary, I think it would be better to spell it like "Tisza". Wikipedia seems to agree! Cool quiz tho!

Rivers really amaze me. I didn't know the Brahmaputra (or in other cultures: Yarlung Tsangpo/Siang/Dihang River/Luit) so I looked it up and the course of the river is very interesting. The wide river on the very high plains changing into a thin (probably deep and rapid) river cutting through giant mountains ending into the great delta of Bangladesh. Everywhere having huge impact on culture, agriculture, economy, religion, transport, and so on...

And that's just one of them...

Please, change Oder for Odra. In Germany the river only touches the border. Both Poles and Czechs calls it "Odra" and that is a majority. I actually missed that one, though I am Czech, because I had no idea, what Oder means.

Its standard name in English is the Oder. As a comparison, we don't call the Vistula by its Polish name ("Wisła").

I thought Rio Grande was in Brazil, since it has two states with it in their names (Rio Grande do Sul & Rio Grande do Norte).
