No, that big black blob is clearly Andros Island, so it can't be anything but Bahamas.

Yes because everyone knows what Andros Island looks like

You're on a quiz site, so if you don't, then learn it. It isn't rocket science, it's geography.

To be more specific though, it's less about the pixelated blob and more about the bigger picture. A large oblong island (Andros Island) with a string of thin islands to its right is very recognizable. If it's not to you then I'm sorry, but I'm afraid 'tis a skill issue.

This quiz is very simple, more than likely. Just take the current picture of China for example, make it a silhouette, and turn down the GFX.

They are all different than reality, that is what you get when you pixelate things. It averages things out

Hi everyone! Just to answer some of your late comments: QM has redesigned my quiz (and the first one) to make it more practical. My first version used 10 countries instead of 15 and I "built" each pixel via boxes :) So I can'trespond myself for each all the choices as some countries have been added (or erased). Also keep in mind that the shapes can't be a lot precise given the pixel scale, that's the whole point. Thx QM and thx for your nice comments! :D

Please! You must make a Pixelated Country Shapes 3, 4, and 5! I have a friend who is really good at geography...these quizzes and others are so fun to do! Plus, you do this soooo (I would italicize, underline, and bold that last word if I could) well!

I think Trinidad & Tobago has quite a recognisable shape. In addition Oman isn't really a country that most people know or hear about on a regular basis.

Only missed Oman. Maybe my eyes need to be re-calibrated, but it seems that it's shown as too vertical, when it should be more diagonal...?

Oman is correctly orientated. Usually Saudi Arabia confuses are mindset on much of the Middle East (especially Oman). Look on a COTW map.
