What a delightful new way of quizzing about country names.

These node diagrams are really fun.

Thank you so much.

I admire the work that went into the designs. That must have taken some time.

However, I really just looked at the letters like a Jumble and figured out the names without following the route lines. I feel like I cheated the system. :(

I guess that à US states version would be great. Also, if one day you decide to create a version with French departments, I would help you to translate the instructions, the title and everything in French with pleasure, if you wish.

I will be honest, this was not supposed to blow up (not that I am complaining, though). If I make another one which I suppose there is some support for, I will try and make it a bit more difficult. Just a limited number of countries that have unique node shapes

Fun quiz and thanks for the link to the video that inspired you! I was wondering what would happen if there were double letters, which the video addressed, but I don't think occurred in your quiz. If you do a part 2 (or 3, 4, 5 please), you might want to add a note about that use case.

Minor note: the yellow circles with white lettering were really challenging to read. Maybe it was my monitor's contrast settings or my bad eyes, but I thought I would mention it. Thanks!

Hello and thank you! To your point on double letters, there are three countries with double letters in the quiz. However my reasoning was that it would be weird for a node to have a connection to itself. I feel like it adds to the challenge, personally, but if I make a second, I may explain more. Thanks for the feedback!

Haha, so there is! Oops. No worries about the note then. It didn't slow down my solving. I only thought of it afterwards when I tried to make one of those diagrams with own name which has two double letters.

Interesting new quiz. I must saw though that intuitively the countries with double letters (like ee) do not feel correct. It feels like you need to walk a line for each letter. So for the nodes for Greece it seems like you could only get grece out of it. Each step corresponds to a letter (to me) so those felt really weird.

Hope you understand what I mean. (to make it more complicated I will try to describe how that node could look like haha. For instance g- up r- diagonally up e- diagonally down e- down c- and for the last e you could do a line back to the first e ( to the top of the house so to speak)>

So g| r/ e\ e| c\ (e).

Regardless it was fun, but I think that will improve it. Wish I could have explained it better (or atleast with fewer words haha)
