Took me 50 seconds - the map makes is super easy.

I'd suggest decreasing the time or removing the map - or both :)

Otherwise, fun quiz.

I'll be honest, while I appreciate the time put into the map, most other quizzes like this have no map, so one has to guess at which country is actually closest. Since the Countries of the World quiz is so popular, many people who come across this quiz will probably know the names and locations of countries in black, thus making the quiz too easy for many on Jetpunk.

I'm usually a fan of maps, but here I'd suggest deleting it. Trying to make a mental map in these "Countries closest to ..." quizzes is always a fun challenge.

Not everyone is a geography genius. I feel like this site is often too esoteric for the common person. Let's be honest, the vast majority of people in the world are going to utterly fail at this quiz even with the map. I'm sorry that the map makes it too easy for some of you, but there are lots of similar quizzes that don't have maps. We've got to throw the average person a bone once in a while.

I agree, I used quizzes just like this one to start learning countries and where they are, it's now easy for me but it's great for people who are starting out or just want to do it casually. And a variety of map quizzes is just more fun than taking one Africa quiz over and over to memorize the geography.

I agree that the vast majority of people in the world would fail this quiz, but those aren't the type of people who would be taking it. With the map, this is just an exercise is identifying countries on the map instead of having to think about where countries are relative to Ethiopia.

There are lots of "Countries of Africa" map quizzes for them to practice on. I'd reckon about 50% of the published quizzes on this site are geography. Leave some challenging ones, lest every quiz just becomes "Read this map and say what countries there are."

If you have an issue with a map being on here, just look at your keyboard, problem fixed. People always seem to find (look for..) stuff to complain about. If there ís a map people often complain some countries are too small to see. Well, it is not like the quizmaker shrunk the countries, that is just the size they are..

You should include 'with a Map' in the title to make it clear to people.

Why does a quiz NEED to be hard? Yeah it helped speed up our thought process, but if you want to challenge yourselves you could easily not look at the map, amend the screen or scroll past. And if you want a really challenging quiz, go do the Cantons quiz.

Can't avoid the map on an iPad if you want to use the distances for their intended purposes - as clues. Ditch the map!

It is actually! If you want an easy tool to measure the distance for yourself, you can use the "Measure Distance"-tool in Google Maps. You can find it by right clicking on the map. :)
