Note : This mode does not qualify for scoreboard
You can zoom the map in for a better view. This will let you pin point areas more precisely.
How to Play
You will be prompted to find a country on the map. Click on the map to indicate where you think that country is located. You can always pan and zoom the map to make finding an accurate place to click easier.
The game ends when you get the location of a country wrong or when you complete the game, you will then be asked to enter your name on to the high score list.
Click on restart game at any time to start again from the beginning.
This game will record every time someone gets an answer right or wrong. By totalling up these values, it can then be determined which countries are generally harder to find than others. Then, when someone else comes along to play the game they will be presented with easier countries, 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.

Awesome game. Nice and smooth implementation. How about a skip function in non-scoreboard mode, so you can skip really small/unkown areas like South Georgia/Montserrat/Kiribati?On 7th October 2021
Update : Somaliland will no longer appear as a questionBy Daft Logic on 3rd September 2021
Somaliland seems to be buggedOn 1st September 2021
Democratic Republic of the Congo should now be workingBy Daft Logic on 13th August 2021
The issue with Kashmir has been addressedBy Daft Logic on 13th August 2021
Kashmir doesn't work, it's only recognised as India according to "click for country"By UlrikHD on 11th August 2021
The issue with Kiribati seems to be that I use Kiritimati Island as a pin for Kiribati, using the more western islands seems to work fine identifying Kiribati.By UlrikHD on 10th August 2021
or scratch that. Didn't see that you had replied and fixed South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands.By UlrikHD on 10th August 2021
The issue regarding islands not having correct hitboxes seems related to the level of zoom you got. Zooming all in on Kiribati or South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands when placing your pin causes you to "miss". Zooming out, the hitboxes reappear it seemsBy UlrikHD on 10th August 2021
republic of the Congo seems to be missing, only available is Congo-BrazzavilleBy UlrikHD on 10th August 2021
Kiribati seems OK. Issues have been spotted elsewhere, but this one appears to be "good"By Daft Logic on 10th August 2021
South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands should now be workingBy Daft Logic on 10th August 2021
Samoa has been causing issues. It has now been removed from the list of "questions"By Daft Logic on 10th August 2021
suggestion: going fullscreen you should be able to see what country you should locate so that you don't need to go in and out out fullscreen for each pin.By UlrikHD on 9th August 2021
Checking with clickforcountry, it doesn't register Kiribati, Samoa, American Samoa, etc...
playing with random, your streak is limited by how long it takes before you get an island that don't have a location on the mapBy UlrikHD on 9th August 2021
Not sure if all this island issues are already well known, Kiribati is also messed upBy UlrikHD on 9th August 2021
South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands also seems buggedBy UlrikHD on 9th August 2021
Placing the pin on Savai'i, Samoa when asked where Samoa is gives you wrong answerBy UlrikHD on 9th August 2021
Great game! I really like it.... Just a thing that I will like to see in the future; When you are wrong, the game will show the borders of every countryBy That_themis_guy_from_greece on 13th June 2021
Brilliant! Thank you :)By Geode on 20th May 2021
Geode, it is now renamed to Somaliland -> this should work.By Daft Logic on 18th May 2021
Hi Geode, we will look in to this.By Daft Logic on 18th May 2021
First of all love this game!
Struggling with selectig Somalia im 99% sure im clicking in the countires borders, tried many times but always comes up as wrong.By Geode on 17th May 2021
We have added a randomise button below the map. Let us know what you think...By Daft Logic on 22nd April 2021
Hello DaftLogic. I really like your quiz and all, but I think that you should add an option where you can randomise the countries. It's boring for every attempt to be the same.
Thank you for your time, ThemisBy That_themis_guy_from_greece on 19th April 2021
Guernsey has been removedBy Daft Logic on 6th April 2021

Hi Iodum, can you click on NZ for your answer to the first question, then post a message here soon after to confirm you have done it? We have setup logging to find the cause of this, but need you to test it and confirm when so that we can find the log entry. ThanksBy Daft Logic on 17th December 2020
New Zealand is still not working. Could it be I clicked on the wrong New Zealand? When you zoom out far enough you can see two New Zealand....I don't know what went wrong. I clicked right in the middle of the South Island.By Iodum Rennium on 17th December 2020
TurkeyCookTime, not sure what went wrong. We have run some tests and New Zealand is getting detected as New Zealand. It's also a country with a consistent name.By Daft Logic on 25th November 2020
