The only solution I find is that overtired is a genius. Brillant idea, as always (but more again this time, in my opinion). Congratulations, and nominated, sure!

I'm surprised that only 7.7% of takers got them all on the first try. For me, it was pretty easy to just remember which spots were blue on the map.

Challenge to those who found it tricky: only give yourself ten seconds to study the map

Edit: That's actually as bit of a challenge. I only missed Belize, which I didn't have time to notice.

You have to count to see if you actually saw all 15 countries. If you don't, there's no way to get a 15.

Not every person's brain is image-focused. My, for example, is sound-focused. I never benefit from these "memory techniques" that tell you to imagine some pictures instead of words. Hell, I often do the opposite and try to remember picutres as words because I can't remember many visual details. If police asked me to help with a photofit picture of anybody, I would be of 0 help.

I feel like an absolute idiot, I did this quiz 8 times before I got them all. The kicker: I got 14/15 on every single other try. One country always somehow slipped my mind.

Only got 12 the first time because I didn't bother counting and missed the smaller countries. The second time I spent more time looking for the smaller countries than studying the map.

I'm proud of my bad memory for getting this on the first try.

I decided to go in with mnemonics cuz my memory sucks so I came up with mnemonics for the different continents countries. There was only 1 in the Americas and 1 in Oceania, so I just kept their normal names. And the 3 i got in Africa didn't start with a vowel so I just repeated LCG 'til I had started and could type them in. The actual mnemonics came into play for Europe and Asia. I used GRINS for Europe cuz I got Greece, Romania, Iceland, Norway, and Switzerland. Then I had to be more creative with Asia and made SKYLIK cuz I got South Korea, Yemen, Laos, Iran, and Kazakhstan. I found my mnemonics funny and figured I'd share them.
