Great concept, but will add my support to those requesting more time. The drawing is just too slow if the randomization results in a quiz with a lot of countries with intricate borders. Sometimes impossible to even get close to the end even if you guess early with each. Don't know what the point of the quiz is if it won't allow you to actually take a stab at each question because it's too busy drawing.

The point of the quiz is to see how many countries you can get in the short amount of time by guessing countries as they are being drawn.

Yes, it's possible to get a series of trickier countries, though those with more intricate borders can also offer more detail to guess with. Randomized quizzes usually have the chance for an unlucky hand, but it's a short quiz and you can have another shot at it.

Adding too much time or increasing the draw speed turns the quiz into just another "guess the country shape" quiz and undermines the whole point. So I am being very careful about increasing the time limit. Currently a quarter of people are getting all 16 on their first try, and plenty of people have times well under two minutes.

If you get 10 or more I'd say that's a good score. (Everyone doesn't need to win a gold medal!) If there was a game mode that didn't require a total number of answers to be set I'd use it. I nearly made it 50... but I could just imagine the complaints... :)

All that said... I have added another 15 seconds.

There's now half a minute more than the original two. I'll keep an eye on the stats, but highly doubt I'll add more. I'd prefer to make a separate quiz with extra time than undermine the point and the challenge of this one.

I think the ideal quiz length is where 15-20% of quizzers get 100%. This amazing, insanely wonderful quiz is currently running at 21%.

The whole point of the quiz is that you have to be able to name at least 3 or 4 countries before they are fully completed. I would say to minimally increase if so.

Is there a way to see the answers with the pictures after the quiz? I'm really trying to get to 16 but it's tricky to learn if you miss a few and can't remember exactly what one of them looked like.

I appreciate the extra time, you could probably add a minute more and I'd still struggle though tbh, just not my thing it seems. If there's one I don't know that's 10-15 seconds wasted... Infuriatingly addictive!

Amazing quiz. Loved the concept and execution.

I've played about 30 times, and didn't come across Canada, Indonesia, Philippines, etc. Are these countries excluded because of the large number of islands?

+2
Level 84
Jul 6, 2021
Yep, countries with too many islands are a bit of a pain to make - joining them all together into one line and then individually masking out all the joins - plus some other issues with getting them to draw in a good order.

I did make Canada with a fair few of its islands but the coast is so long and complicated that the draw time was excessive and it took up a lot of file space. I tried simplifying it but it didn't look that good. I might try again at some point.

No. No no no no no. I’m without words right now. We already thought was impossible do something better, or like the Spinning Globe by Crem, but now, he, Overtired, full us of the opposite: animation. I can’t stop playing this quiz, and I’m... what to say with it? How many praises we can say? Marvelous, insane, amazing, gorgeous, funny, beautiful, divine, brilliant, wonderful... DAMN! I’M WITHOUT PRAISES! I really want to learn how you did it. All of us want to learn, this, before you get overtired lol! You make us happy with your presence and amazing quizzes. A shame, that I can’t nominate it anymore. We don’t know anymore who is the SVG Emperor. Is IAB? Is Jiao? Is Pandora? Is Dug? Is many I’m forgetting at this moment? I know that Overtired can’t be a candidate of SVG Emperor. Why? Because these aren’t SVGS. Are games, culture, and lifestyle. A new subscriber for you! I need to stop now, because I won’t have more praises, and characters for write. Just be knowing: this is amazing.
