I fail to understand why Mongolia is not an accepted answer for the first category?
+14
Level 68
May 30, 2019
It's very close, but Mongolia's capital is actually about 1 degree below Paris! It's very counter intuitive.
+4
Level 81
May 30, 2019
Oh. I always had this image of Mongolia being up north of China and Kazakhstan being somewhat south of China and they are actually about as far north. Live and learn.

Sorry but since when is Kazakhstan landlocked? It has its west coast on the Caspian sea
+15
Level 68
Jun 1, 2019
Caspian Sea is actually not a sea but a lake, thus meaning it does not count as coastline for Kazakhstan. This is standard for JetPunk.

Level 76

Helps a lot when your answer to the first clue ends up also being the answer to the fifth clue - thank you Kazakhstan!

Panama is a right answer for the second one. First letter between M-Z. Blue on it's flag, has a capital name over 9 letters (Panama-City is 10 letters long). And lies entirely west of London...
+4
Level 68
Jun 3, 2019
It works for the first 4 clues (as it should) but doesn't work for the last. And it shouldn't since "Panama" doesn't contain the letter Y. It's possible that you didn't have the yellow box lined up correctly, since Panama works correctly for the first 4 clues.
+2
Level 60
Sep 2, 2021
I think you are confused with the Y. It needs to be in the country name, not in the capital name.

Pink box: There are only 6 countries which fullfil the two last clues (when let aside the other three, rather redundant clues): Burkina Faso, CAR, South Sudan, North Macedonia, San Marino, Vatican City! Clue 1 eats another 3 of them. ;-)

Russia should be allowed for the fourth question in the blue block.

We consider Russia to be part of Europe on JetPunk since this is where the majority of the population reside.

Surely it is part of both Europe and Asia? You can't say Russia is European, at least not wholly, when a huge portion of Asia is Russian territory.

That said, great quiz, and got them all :)

I wonder where were you looking, because I honestly can't remember a quiz where that is the case. I won't say 100%, but almost always, it is and always was considered an European country.

Always neat when you start out with the bottom answer first and type it in successfully 5 times in a row, and particularly so when you had a 1/153 chance.

I think that east/west are delineated by the 180 Meridian (roughly the International Date Line). So NZ is considered east of London.

Level 63
Sep 2, 2019
Probably it would be better if the quiz stated "lies in the western hemisphere", becuase, strictly speaking, we could consider any place in the world to be east or west of any other.

I got them all reasonably fast except the pink box. Got all the clues but I had no idea which country it could be (those elevation questions always get me because I just have nooooo idea about that). So I just guessed a random two-word country and actually got South Sudan on first try? Wow!

If you wanted to practice flags, I can highly recommend our JetPunk Minigame : Geography Snap! It's very useful for learning flags, capitals and shapes :)

For Norway--- it says countries beging with 'M'

Level 68
Apr 26, 2022
With a letter after M, N comes after M, so it is correct.

Apr 26, 2022
Countries beginning with letter after M is tricky until you understand it's ANY letter after M, not N specifically))
