I found this much easier than your last puzzle, knowing the first letter of the country meant just mentally listing countries until I found one that would fit. Still fun though!

Ahh, I realised that too when looking at the statistics ... I’ll have to come up with something more clever next time, hehe :D

I guess both would make sense: either saying column 1 is M, 2 is A, etc or rows' countries start with M, A, L, and I in that order.

Very enjoyable quiz! I was so focused on remembering the difficult countries, that I almost forgot that Italy exists :D But couldn't the first country be Moldova as well as Malta?

Couldn't Iran or Iraq also work in place of Indonesia?

Am I the only one still confused about what this quiz is supposed to be about or even how it works? I tried reading the instructions many times and still have no idea what this quiz wants from me.

The first column’s countries must all begin M; the second, A; third, L; fourth, I. This makes each row’s first letters spell MALI.

The red boxes are Asian countries; the yellow, European.

Reading down each column means advancing through the alphabet (albeit not by much as the first letter can’t change).

More specific requirements are in the caveats (although they’re mostly just locking potentially-ambiguous options down to only being one by making the other possibilities impossible).

I think that’s everything, but I’m sure someone will mention I’ve forgotten something somewhere! 🤣

Pretty sure Moldova also works for the first slot (instead of Malta), since Moldova comes alphabetically before Monaco.

The pair Monaco/Montenegro would also work, also fitting the 1 6-letters-country rule

this one is too specific, thus it just becomes a guessing game, not much logic or puzzle solving its mostly just, what asian countries that start with L do i know and then just guess them until you get it right
