Was typing luand then time was up. Would ve helped if I wasnt in the dark and could ve seen the kb (better). Now I kinda had the same speed as typing with one finger. And didnt get somalia, was happy I got the one before though. Cant remember what I tried just that it was on the west coast, Cape verde I believe, after trying togo, and or ghana and or cameroon. I knew there were some stars in that area, just all the exact colours

That's weird -

I got Somalia but "...that have white on them" says I didn't get it right at the end

Edit: Oh yeah, it's a yellow box quiz... never mind..

Another great quiz in a great series... one thought though, you have "is landlocked" as a clue in the "capitals or countries" section, which kind of gives it away as a country!

Nope! Capitals can be landlocked too. In particular their country can be landlocked as well.

So a city is landlocked if it's not on the ocean?

Level 68
May 18, 2020
Yes, this is generally how I decided whether a capital was landlocked or not. Obviously it's hard to quantify that, which is why I rarely used the idea.

Eritrea is a country in Africa with E and population below 5 million but it didn't work for me in that place. Am I missing something?

Looks like I had the 3 and 5 in its population swapped in my spreadsheet! Fixed now. 3.5m not 5.3m!

I put in Freetown -- with an e, less than 5 million pop, and more than one word in its name! Free and town are two words, right? Then I realized what you meant.

Great quiz.

Doesn't Eswatini fit the purple question?

It does the first 3, but it only has one word not two, so therefore fails at the 4th clue.

Stewart, you are being tricksey giving us a clue for a country that contains an e, when that country is usually written as an abbreviation without one. :) As always, great quiz.

There's no E in Gambia, so it fails the second clue. We use the names on the Countries of the World quiz.

Amazing Quiz! Could you please give a brief explanation of how you make these if you want? I've tried making my own by figuring it out myself, but theres a cap on how many 'containing' you can use in order to accept multiple countries. Thanks!

Sure.

The easiest way is to separate answers by | (the pipe) in Step 2, this will produce auto typeins in Step 3, separating one answer per line. You can then set this to custom (to make sure it doesn't change) and then go back to Step 2 and change the visible text to be a check character.

I feel like Lilongwe could be the answer to countries or capitals, because it has the letter e, has a population under 5 mil, has more than one word in it's name (long and we) and it's landlocked

It has 1 word in its name - "Lilongwe". Example of one with 2 words is Buenos Aires for example.
