Most obscure choice of islands I've ever encountered. Knew eight, got six.

Agree - I'd consider myself knowledgeable about geography but had only heard of 11 of the ones that came up, and got 10 of those.

Think worth pondering whether the quiz is primarily designed to check knowledge of obscure islands or test skill at anagrams.

Which isn't to detract from the idea or its execution - very nicely put together quiz despite my quibble.
