Find Country on Map Game

Last Updated 18th January 2012

How to Play

Find Country on Map is a simple game in which you have to click on a map to locate a country. Read the instructions below the map and when asked to find a country you should click on the map where that country is. If you get the answer correct you will then be asked to find another country. Every time you get a country correct you get 1 point.

You can always pan and zoom the map to make finding an accurate place to click more easy.

When you get one wrong or when you complete the game, you will be able to enter you name into the high score list.

Click on restart game at any time to start again from the beginning.

Difficulty Ranking

This game will record every time someone gets an answer right or wrong. By totaling up these values, it can then be determined which country's are generally harder to find than others. Then, when someone else comes along to play the game they will be presented with easier country's first, and as the game proceeds the countries will get more difficult to find.

Therefore over time this game will have a better difficulty curve that will score players in a fairer way.

make a version with borders on, will make it more fun finding small countries
On 30/08/2014
So, Australia is not Australia?
On 10/08/2014
So Crimea's not Ukraine...
On 15/06/2014
I was an international pilot for many years. Just found out that I dropped off many passengers in what I thought was Australia!!! I wonder where I dropped these folks off????
By Gabe on 14/05/2014
chrishna, the boarders are deliberately omitted to make it harder.
By Daft Logic on 03/04/2014
Also, sometimes the cursor got stuck when I was navigating around the map with the hand tool and I couldn't unstick it, so I got dinged with a wrong answer. Sometimes left-clicking it unlocked it but not always.
By chrishna on 03/04/2014
Would be fairer (easier?) if there were lines drawn in for borders. Those countries the size of Delaware are hard to pinpoint topographically!
By chrishna on 03/04/2014
Don't see how people can't get Australia. It works for me.
By Pete on 24/03/2014
Can't get out of the first country Australia Daaah !!!
On 22/03/2014
nice didn't get Turkey cause my ant makes it
By gertrude on 06/01/2014
good game, needs borders including though
On 01/12/2013
Yea. It's stuck on Australia.
On 18/11/2013
There are several faults, including the failure to include all countries, failure to recognise Australia on the first attempt and I think the borders should be inclyded
By l14mh01m4n on 14/10/2013
Um, yeah, It asked me where Australia was. I clicked on Australia and it told me I was wrong. I know where Australia! Need to fix the programming errors. I see from the comments above, others are having the same issues.
On 13/10/2013
I found 91 countries! Wow, I didn't think I was capable of doing that. Is there Russia on this list? Because I didn't get it. And I'm Russian.
By Russia on 04/10/2013
This hasn't happened before. I keep getting "Try again to find...", as if I've clicked the ocean. Maybe after 5 or 6 times I've clicked on the same location it'll work...and then I have the same problem on the next country! Hope this stops soon, I love this game.
By Jared on 04/08/2013
Just tried this game. First question is Australia. So I click on Australia. It just keeps asking me to try again to find Australia. It's not saying Austria. I'm pretty sure I know where Australia is.
On 03/04/2013
Tripped up on Iraq
On 10/03/2013
Oh yeah, high score 38 on second try! Bulgaria tripped me up. I think this game is pretty interesting. Kudos from England.
By Kat on 03/03/2013
Myanmar is wrong :(
On 21/02/2013
I'm clicking on Myanmar, but it says it's not there. I hope that gets fixed...
By Andrew S! on 07/02/2013
I lost on....CHINA

Fails to recognise Russia (Firefox 17.0.1)
By Matt on 19/01/2013
worthless
On 18/01/2013
maybe, once a country has been successfully clicked on, it's border should appear on the map. That way, players aren't tripped up thinking (as I did) that the whole of some lobe of landmass is one country (aka 'Damn you Yemen!'). Also, you could keep the difficulty calculated from failure rates thing but include 'lives' so that is a player is torn, (s)he gets the chance to test both guesses ('Iran!'). Just thoughts. Good game though, addictive.
By n2m on 07/01/2013
Criggie, the list is reset every week and from there on it will order itself depending on the which countries people often get correct and wrong.
By Daft Logic on 29/12/2012
Looks good - can we see a list of the rankings of countries? And can the question list be mixed up a bit on subsequent plays?
By Criggie on 26/12/2012
When you pass the 100 points, the game start to became heavier in frame rate. Is it normal?
By Diego on 12/12/2012
Reply to Gazzer: how did you get to San Marino when Australia(The 1st one) was wrong to me.
By Allen Liang on 14/11/2012
Bugger! I lost it on San Marino! I score 137 and it doesn't register! WHY???
