Sneaky Russia. It would've been the first R-country I'd guess if I hadn't already known the mystery country.

Sooo much harder than the previous, got 100% there. This time I only got 10/25 !

I knew it was somewhere in the americas, mainly middle. So Argentina not being accepted for A and Ecuador not accepted for E threw me... hadnt thpught of the other countries.

Me too. Really fun one, though! These are great quizzes. I found the U country is a good early clue, since there are each so far apart.

I'm learning the trick is to start with the Js. Knowing if it's closest to Japan, Jamaica or Jordan really helps narrow it down in the beggining. Great quiz!

I like this format! Would it be possible to make it different each time? I am sure it is easier said than done, but that would make it even better.

Great work!
