These are a top notch idea for a quiz series. They need to be featured so we can get points for them!

I find that the easiest way to get started is to see which "I" country to which it is closest.

I usually see which "V" country is closest since the only outcomes are Venezuela, Vatican, Vietnam, and Vanuatu. Then you know what part of the world to guess :)

for me I look at the 'U's, I find there to be too many 'I's that are close together, like iran iraq india indonesia israel etc while there is at most 2 'U's per continent, I also agree with the 'V' idea, didn't think about that, only problem is africa and N. America

Nope. Austria is a LOT closer than Albania. More than twice as close, unless there's some tiny Croatian island off the Albanian coast.

It's 24km between Croatia and Austria across the narrow eastern part of Slovenia and 66km between Croatia and Albania across Montenegro from the southernmost point of Croatia to the closest Albanian point in the middle of Lake Skadar. So yeah there's a big mistake here.

Start with Q, Y, and O, then move to Z, then J. Those are pretty much free points.

The fact that the answer for s shows both answers is a bit of a giveaway. Then you know it must border both.

Clever concept, however, unless you have a clue as to the general location of the mystery country the time is insufficient to complete all the countries. If the initial guesses are on the wrong continent there is no way of completing this in the time allotted.

Start with letters that only have a few countries that are located in different areas...like J or K. That helps narrow it down
