A quiz like this with randomly generated names might be cool. I found it kinda easy though.
+5
Level 91
Jan 19, 2016
Problem with random generation is it would have to accept all possible answers--e.g. LI would need to accept Liechtenstein, Libya, Liberia, and Lithuania. These were selected because there aren't other countries starting with the same 2 letters.

Using two capital letters instead of one capital and one lower case made Ki appear as KL on my computer. I wonder if that's why it is the least guessed?
+3
Level 67
Oct 5, 2019
But if it was kl then it would have appeared as KL it is clear that it is ki, the capital for i is "I" and for l it is "L" those two capitals are quite distinguisable. (but yea the capital of i looks like the lower case l, but since all of them are written in caps I dont think there is any confusion. would be weird to have only one that suddenly drops the caps for the 2nd letter)

More likely because it isnt such a well known country. That doesnt say it all though, my toughest was cuba, only one that took me a few seconds and not instantly recognising (with all the rest I could just continues typing). And the only one I missed last time around ( which I have no recollection of, but hey it is in the stats, so I must have done it before)

To get it, it just has to start with 'k', followed by either an 'i' or a 'y', then 'rg', and end with "stan".

Em i typed as fast as i could without thinking (granted, i am on tablet so that is somewhat slower than on laptop) skipped the two i didnt immediately know, but didnt even have time to think about it, cause time was up allready. I guess they allready shaved time of since your comment because i think it is close.

On laptop this time and got all with 45 sec remaining. So being on laptop or tablet makes a difference of about a minute.. (cause without the last two, again I had two I skipped when going through the list at speed, before returning to them I would be around a minute)

It had many stansps on there but yea for people in this site that is easy, outside of this place it would be wth a country starting with az/uz (i imagine them answering azia hahah) and dj i dont think the average person would get.
