Although New Guinea may be part of Melanesia, Melanesia refers to the region of Oceania that includes the countries of Fiji, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Nauru and Papua New Guinea, as well as the regions of Papua, West Papua and New Caledonia. Melanesia does not, however, refer to the Malay archipelago, despite their sharing of New Guinea.

Please consider what to do with Leeward and Windward Islands. It's hard to tell where one archipelago ends and another begins, so this division of the Lesser Antilles is a reasonable answer.

Fixed the map. Hope this makes it easier to tell archipelagos apart from one another.

I already have Maldives, Solomon Islands and Sao Tome. If this quiz had too many archipelagos that are also countries, it would be less interesting.

Love this quiz! Quick question, are there 16 or 17 archipelagos? Because your description and the number of answers say different amounts.

I believe the Quizmaster has an external source to which he gets the official Jetpunk maps. I'm all for adding more islands, but the Polar islands such as Svalbard have to be flattened greatly.
