Ooh, that was great fun. I managed only 31/179. I gave up. Had I continued I'd probably have correctly answered another 15 or so.

Otherwise thoroughly enjoyed it, despite my abysmal score!!

After a ten minute study, I have managed to obtain a score of 78/179. A vast improvement!! I ran out of time. Didn't even get to look at the last 12 images.

Next time, I'll start halfway through so I stand a sporting chance of attempting all of them.

137/179.

Really struggling trying to memorize those last 42 flags.

What is wrong with me? Some are really obvious, but I just can't do it 🥺

129/179. I still really enjoyed this and I’m surprised I got Singapore.
