What an interesting idea! Turkmenistan borders Iran as well as Turkey; and Kyrgyzstan borders China as well as Kazakhstan.

Could San Marino also be an S for Visa? Nice quiz :-)

It could not because the countries have to border in order of the letters in the word. San Marino does not border Austria, therefore it couldn't be the S.

I don't understand the rationale. If Visa was Vatican, Italy, San Marino and Austria, all countries would be bordering Italy. I don't see why it shouldn't count.

This quiz picks a first country, a country that borders the first country, and then a country that borders the second country. Vatican City is the first country. That borders Italy, and Italy borders Switzerland, Slovenia, and San Marino. However, since San Marino doesn't border any countries that start with A, it has to be either Switzerland or Slovenia, which both border Austria.

"Vatican" is a typical type-in for Vatican City and "Czechia" is an accepted answer for "Czech Republic."

Czech republic needs to be mapped as czechia as well.

Otherwise, a great quiz

Today was the day I realised Tunisia is spelled like that instead of Tunesia. In my own language (Dutch) the country is called Tunesië and in English I always type Tunesia, which for this quiz doesn't work! That's probably a good thing as it was a lesson for me.

I have read a similar comment elsewhere, and I honestly have no idea what I type, tunisia or tunesia... I will have to pay attention next time...

(tunesia types slightly faster it seems..)

The G in GAIT could also be Greece. (It would be bordering Turkey, with Iran and Azerbaijan/Armenia).

Would still like to see Czechia and Vatican accepted please, as they are standard on pretty much all other jetpunk quizzes.Took me a while to figure out I needed the correct full names!

I see other people commenting this, but Czechia and Vatican should be allowed for Czech Republic and Vatican City.

Forget about Czechia and Vatican, please add the "#" symbol that is missing before the number 3 in the title!

You should add Czechia and Vatican as valid answers, they normally work.
