Country Logic Puzzle by Scambigol #2

Follow instructions carefully!

1) Each cell is identified by its row followed by its column, so for example the top left cell is af
2) Whenever it's possible a cell will contain a country that begins with its cell name
3) When case 2 doesn't apply, whenever it's possible a cell will contain a country that begins with its column followed by its row (ie its cell name reversed, so fa for the top left one)
4) If cases 2 and 3 don't apply, the country will begin with either its row or its column
5) Country length is measured by number of letters (so excluding spaces etc)
6) Names used are the standard jetpunk ones

Cool, but to little clues.

they are enough to solve it without any guessing (unless I made some mistakes!)

it is too tempting to guess and check... I did when the last minute was running out. I thought, afterwards, that I should have taken it untimed...

There! It took me 35'.

Another great quiz. There appear to be two countries that can be placed in both bj and bk that concur with the logic, given the lack of standardization of country names used throughout jetpunk.

Fun but very, very hard! You should give extra time or more clues.

Just curious, wouldn't Dominican Republic not be an island country, since it borders Haiti, but I also see why it is an island country, because it is detached from the Americas and Afro-Eurasia, but just curious. I guess United Kingdom and Ireland are Island countries even though they bordered each other, but just to make sure?

I was like: There's no country that starts with F and E that has more that 2 words! I gave up and I was like OH

This doesn't accept my answers; for example Chile. No matter if I wrote it chile, Chile or CHILE. :-(

Very nice quiz! But why can't you swap Antigua and Barbuda with Australia? Without that clue I can't finish the quiz without cheating on this country!

whoops hadn't realized, thanks a lot! I added a clue in DG that should fix it. Thanks again!

Wow, very difficult but great. I've read in some comments that there was ambiguity in the choice of a couple of countries, but everything has been fixed now: no guessing needed, unique solution!

I love these geographical - logic quizzes, but I understand that they need very hard work to be constructed... so thank you very much!

Good but clues not specific enough. For example, when first starting out, GA could be Gabon or Gambia. JA = Japan or Jamaica, CH=Chad or China, CG = Chile or Ghana. This is just a few examples.

The point is that since those cannot be uniquely determined at that point, you shouldn't fill them in yet. They will get uniquely determined by the clues later.

How can we know DR Congo?

Process of elimination. There are only so many countries with a D or K, and DF says row D must be in the tropics. This leaves:


Dominican Republic,


Democratic Republic of the Congo,



All of which are filled in somewhere else.
