# Country Logic Puzzle by Scambigol #18

There are 24 empty cells; each contains a country. They all start with different letters. You are shown this initial letter above the cell.
You shouldn't type an answer if you are not 100% sure it goes there, no guessing!!

A. Rules:

1) all answers are 'connected' to one another on the world map (ie you can reach them by crossing other answers)
2) all answers border at least 2 other answers of this same quiz, except for 2
3) no land-locked country outside Asia ends up being ' completely surrounded' by answers cells
4) crossing the following straits counts as 'normal borders' for this quiz: Bab-El-Mandeb and Hormuz
Please don't cheat by guess and check!

Wonderful work as always.

But don't hint 3 allow Russia and China to be answers due to Mongolia?

Could Nam and Bot not work instead of Net and Bel? I thought I've worked it out when I typed in Nam and Bot. But maybe I missed something in the clues?

if you don't have Netherlands then France borders just one answer. you already have two such answers so can't have another one (Qatar and Jordan)

Great as usual, but this it was very tricky: in the end, it seemed unsolvable to me because I hadn't considered the sint maarten-saint martin border...
