I like that this one has the map and the continent hints. It makes it a little more manageable than the version without those. Perhaps you add "with a Map" in the title to differentiate this version from the others?

I didn't even notice it had a map until the quiz was over. The map feels like it's cheating because it's just another name all the countries on the map quiz at that point.

how is it a name all the countries quiz? With that you don't have to do it in alphabetical order. This one is different because you can't just go through and name them randomly; it has to be in order which makes it harder

"Probably not, but try anyway."

Well, I did, with two minutes to spare. Not a challenging quiz if you know the countries of the world well. It would have been much more difficult had the map was absent.

why are some of the countries not following regular Jet Punk protocols for naming? like North Macedonia was in N instead of M, Micronesia was in F instead of M, Both Congos were not in C. granted the underlined blank helped but I just think this quiz should match all others.

I agree with other comments that the map made it possible to finish as did the continent clues so eliminating one or the other would make it more challenging. this was fun to spend 34 minutes on my granddaughter enjoyed watching me struggle at times haha!

North Macedonia is in the "N" country quiz, Micronesia is in the "F" country quiz, etc. The Jetpunk protocols include country name modifiers to avoid confusion. That is, there must be some way to differentiate between the two Congos, right?

The tiniest of nitpicks, but for the first two T countries, they are both from Asia, but the Asia hint is in two separate boxes not centered in one box like it is in other parts of the quiz.

I have no problem finishing the countries of the world quiz because I go through them in a certain order in my head. This makes me think about them in a different and challenging way. I didn't finish it this time around, but I plan to get there soon. Great idea for a quiz!

I could not have done this without the hints - and I still needed the map for the last ten that I could NOT think of. It's so different than doing maps of the world! Going from thinking in continents to thinking in letters is a surprisingly hard shift. Great quiz!

Usually I type in "Kirgistan" which is closer to the German spelling and never internalized the second letter would be a "Y", so that took a while. Without map i was still missing Malta, Mauretania, Djibouti and for some reasons Thailand, with help of the map those blanks can be filled immediately. Great fun quiz!

I loved it, really helpful to have the map and the grouping by letter. I got it with just a minute remaining, which for a 35 minute quiz felt awesome. Is there a way I could see the map simultaneously with the quiz? It was really hard to keep scrolling back and forth.

Yea, this has always been a pain. But today I thought, (instead of a side by side lay-out which is only possible for some quizzes) isn't it possible? The question box remains in place when you scroll the page, couldn't the map box also stay in place??

Of course I don't know the coding involved.
