Country Word Search - Large Edition

Find the countries hidden in the large word search grid. As with typical word searches, words may be forwards or backwards in any single row, column, or diagonal.
There are no answer boxes on purpose! The responsive grid is your only resource to find all the countries.
Too large for you? Try these smaller ones: Countries, Animals or US States!
Acronyms not accepted, so UK is not valid for example.
Also try the Sequel!

In celebration of two years since my original word search, enjoy this extra large word search, featuring a fully functional 11x11 grid! Hopefully I'll be here in another two years too :)

Go for it :) There are nearly 200 countries, so I don't think you'll run out just yet ;)

I imagine it is as much a puzzle making them as it is solving them :)

I nominate this one for a star. Some amazing work to get such a dense slab of letters to produce so many countries!

Thank you so much Jeremy! The small ones usually take 30 minutes to craft, but this one being larger took almost 2 hours! Then there's the converting to svg... Overall though I'm very pleased with it and am glad others like it too, it was worth the effort :)

Nice that they are crossed out :) (to avoid confusion maybe in the description mention the words are in a straight line?).

Missed two short ones, peru and laos, thought I did bad (Rest went pretty easy but those last ones were a struggle but high fever couldnt think anymore) but apparently not, since it gave me 5 points ! and average is 13

I was wondering if the left over letters would spell something or if perhaps none were supposed to be left. I think that disctracted me a lot hehe. I kept staring at those in the end

After finally finishing updating all 26 Country, 11 US State and 3 Animal word searches to SVG format, I also decided to change this so that the countries are no longer sorted by continent. Hopefully this makes it more difficult to just guess countries!

Further update, upon releasing Wordsearch Large #2, I decided it was best to just remove the answer boxes altogether. That was the grid is your only resource! So you can solve the wordsearch how it's supposed to be.

The amount of words on here that almost spell countries is criminal.

But in most word searches the words to be found are given, and they are not timed!

My eyes kept being drawn to the column that said NMUCARCUNNN. I kept thinking I saw a country name in there somewhere.

I had got 10 right and then with 3 minutes left I gave up and started to keep typing random countries.

I've managed to type 40 or so countries and not a single one of them was right! What are the odds? :P

maybe do a (easier) one with a word box that gets crossed off as you do it? Maybe its just me but these are quite difficult...

There's no way to do that with this format though, since you would just type what's in the box

The font was specifically chosen to be monospace, so that all letters are the same size and that the letters are easily distinguishable, e.g. that "i" doesn't look like "l"
