I hate having to type out Equatorial Guinea. I use as many shortenings as possible but every time I get it, my score gets worse. Besides this minor inconvenience, the quiz is great!

I usually scan the map quickly before starting. If EG is one of the missing countries I write off beating my personal best (0:18) and play that round with less effort.

Fastest time 1:03

But I refuse to play when one of the missing countries is Equatorial Guinea; I just reload the page.

No countries where the spelled-out name is wider than the actual country...

Thanks to the warning in Italics at the top of the page, the South Pacific and African island nations aren't that hard because I know to keep a special eye out for them. But countries like the UK, Japan, and the Netherlands? Miss them every time. (I missed perfidious Albion three times on the road to 20/20!)

Not sure if this subject has been addressed before, but it seems that there are a few countries that disappear more frequently than others. Haven't keep count, but after having taken this quiz over 7,000 times (yes, I'm obsessed - I see how many I can do in a row under 45 seconds), I seem to have Gabon and Burkina Faso, for example, missing more often than a lot of other countries. Maybe I'm just going blind after so many attempts . . .

Love this quiz. The random factor makes it fun to replay over and over and race against one's own personal best time.

My only complaint is the choice of nations that are included vs not included in the set of countries that can be missing. I understand the choice to exclude micro-nations like Vatican City or those of the Lesser Antilles... but why include Malta or Nauru and not Cyprus, Lebanon or Singapore? Why not include East Timor or Qatar? Some of these are visible lands at this scale.

I would like to see East Timor, Lebanon, Cyprus, and Qatar included, if not all micro-nations highlighted like Seychelles, Nauru or Maldives.

The reason those you pointed out are highlighted is because they are surrounded by the light blue water, so you can see if they’re gone easier.

How are we to know if the islands are missing or not? Sometimes the shaded light blue emptiness suggest it is missing. I type in its name and presto nothing happens, other times it is valid...
