For STAG Armenia or Azerbaijan could be used because they both border Turkey

Somalia could also replace South Sudan in TUSK. Seems a bit harsh not to accept legitimate solutions just because they’re not the one the QM happened to be thinking of. Unless I’m misunderstanding something about how the quiz works.

Somalia doesn't border Uganda, so no, that wouldn't work. Azerbaijan should be a correct answer for STAG though.

What about SEEK - Somalia, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Kenya? Or do they have to go in order that they border? If so, might be a good idea to put that in the directions.

I still don't see why Azerbaijan isn't a valid answer.

I would give more time, but require the four to be guessed as a single unit in order. More thinking required that way.

Somehow missed the "in order" part and got a weirdly low score.

Excellent quiz!! A novel idea.. and not only that, in the beginning I thought there would be no way I would get it in time, 4 mins and no idea where to start ( and I hate spamming countries, so didn't type untill I thought of the neighbouring countries with the correct letters). I was sweating it, but in the end managed to get them all in time ! 2:16 used. It help that some countries were repeated.

A good mix of tough and doable! Nice challenge. Probably one of the best I have done so far (besides the country elimination quiz)

For the LIES I only had Sudan and kept thinking it's Africa until I randomly tried Lebanon at 10 seconds left. I managed to fill the last missing one at 0:01 lmao. The time at the end says "3:59" hah.
