Pixelated Europe Map

Europe has been pixelated! Only pixels with at least 50% land have survived! Each pixel can only be guessed by the country which has the most area inside it!
There are no answer boxes on purpose! The pixel grid is your only resource to name all the countries

that's funny considering how many people on this site ask Quizmaster to include this acronym, that abbreviation, this shorthand, that misspell, etc.

all just to accommodate for their lack of typing/knowledge.

@WillemLAif - you are correct, they were listed and incorrect as well. I guess I just gravitated to the island country because it is commonly brought up - EU status and all that.

Some parts of Istanbul, and some other Turkish land is in Europe, therefore, Turkey is a transcontinental country

Thanks! And yeah, I saw ibx started making JetPunk videos - and even though my quiz wasn't the title video but was taken at the end, I've definitely noticed an uptick in takes!

I'd certainly be happy with more bigger youtubers using JetPunk - we can grow more!

Sidenote: The effect has been noticeable all over, the past 3 days, the top quizzes have been flooded with 1000+ takes at the end of the day, despite usually having 7 or so over 1000, the past few days have seen 14+. It's certainly good to see JetPunk expanding :)

Your efforts are definitely paying back, belated congrats passing 300k couple days ago and another 10k since! :o)

Liking the new multiple choice format too, opens the door to some cool ideas I'm sure you'll find! 👍

Was originally gunning for 300k by end of year, but just missed out as I passed on Jan 6th! However I have a new goal of 500k by my birthday (April 20th), which is somewhat attainable given the number of Random quizzes I have featured between now and then! (I'm currently predicting a 440-470k finish, gotta hope for a breakout somewhere!)

Also yes, I'm not a massive fan of Multiple Choice quizzes, but I do have some ideas in the works :)

I notice that your pixelated map has awarded Crimea to Russia. Has Jetpunk now officially ratified the transfer? We should notify the United Nations...

Albania was a close call, but sadly it was a bit too thin to fill half a pixel

Jan 16, 2019
Very easy, but instead of 279 pixels, the total number should be the number of countries that needed to be inserted. This number would be much more useful

But then it’s just a Europe quiz? This way it’s weighted based on the size of the countries! Makes it even more different from the usual Europe quiz

They may be thinking it's like a shapeless version. But I was thinking the pixers would be the same amount of countries, not the answers. They would be redistributed.

Though I managed to get them all, I was also surprised at Kosovo being the last one. I was running out of time (only 0:46 left at the finish) and it took about 20 seconds for it to load the results, so I was concerned that it would crash, but no matter. It did not crash, and the quiz is done. It's probably just the computer I'm using that's the problem.

Might be just me but i feel like there isnt enough time. I simply started typing all the european countries and still missed 2. I had to correct a typo about 4x times but only mentioned one country not on the map. So imo the time is adequate for a normal (speed) europe map, but since this one is different it could use some more time (especially if you dont want people to just rattle of the entire list without look at the screen. Would be a waste of work and might aswell just call it list the countries of europe)

Shouldn't pixelated Corsica show up with pixelated France? Or are both of those pixelated Sardinia?
+6
Level 68
May 3, 2019
Nope, they are actually both Sardinia! Due to the way the pixelation worked around there, it's a bit deceptive. Here's my workings for that particular area for reference:

As you see, Corsica is just a little too small to occupy half a square.

Hello all. I am glad I was able to do this quiz. I must admit it was indeed a bit weird but i managed to get the full 5 points nonetheless. My Italian friend Maria asked me if I knew how to do a storyboard. God knows what a storyboard is but fortunately this was not a question here. My Danish friend Clara feels a bit left out due to the fact that I refused to mention her in this very comment. I hope she feels better now. Thanks again and catch ya later.
