I'm guessing some people would like to know the logic behind the answers, so here's every answer in order with the logic and squares needed to figure them out:

Amazing quiz, must have taken a lot of hard work. It would be nice to see a source on the population as some countries can be close. Also where is the Mediterranean Sea defined. As far as I can see both Morocco and Tunisia fits in B6. Please explain if I'm wrong but I can't see how one can be deduced. Finally, you might want to add more time. 20 minutes is not a lot of time. I had to untime it which is a shame. Maybe 60 or 120 minutes so one can spend some time working out the logic. Great quiz though, a nomination from here :-)

Thank you, much appreciated!

The source for the population is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_and_dependencies_by_population

Morocco can be eliminated from B6 with D4. Morocco has a green star on its flag, and therefore doesn't fit in column B :)

I will increase the quiz time so it doesn't have to be solved in such a hurry.

Did all the quiz in 29:22. It was pretty hard. May I ask you about adding the shorter type-ins for countries such as North Korea(DPRK) and New Zealand(NZ)?

Very very interesting quiz. Thanks for making, the Word document with the order was helpful sometimes. Main challenges for me:

- Finding out what hint belongs to what box and the other way around. Some visual reference might be useful, but I have no idea how to do that while still making it look uncluttered.

- Personally I'm not a fan of the abundance of flag-related hints.

Really, really fun. I got all but one, and absolutely broke the "no guessing" rule towards the end.

I will nominate; I would recommend making a less challenging version to make this great idea more accessible.

Interesting! It might be good to specify in the instructions that numbers are exact ("four countries" means exactly four countries, not at least four countries).

I don't see how B3 gives you D2 (from the doc you shared)...there's nothing to indicate continent yet, is there?

A1: Each row represents a different continent. And since Oceania only has one country with 10M+ population, B3 gives you D2 = Australia.

loved this! is this made by using "text quiz" or using the path/ID stuff? or did you have to create a table in some other tool and then bring it here by SVG?

Honestly, I have no idea how to make such things myself so I copied a featured quiz with a grid layout and tweaked that to fit my quiz.

Any quiz with a grid for answers should work. I think I used a multiplication table quiz, and just modified it to suit my needs.
