Find Country on Map Game

Find Country on Map is a simple game in which you have to click or tap on a map to locate countries. Read the instructions above 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.

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 more easy.

The game ends when you get the location of a country wrong or when you complete the game, you will then be asked to 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 totalling 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.

Hi Tarmo, thanks for the feedback. It should now be working.
By Daft Logic on 8th April 2016
Doesn't work in Windows 10 browser Firefox 45.0.1, just blinks once and says 0 points.
Nothing happens in Internet Explorer 11 and Edge.

I am wrong when I arrive to Canada... However, I know very well where it is... (?!?)

Great game; perfect for learning country locations. The lack of marked borders can make it a little frustrating, for example I narrowly missed Israel, on a score of 54, hitting just above on the border with Lebanon. However, this feature actually probably increases ones detailed learning of the specific borders.

Can't see the question :(

Hi sky, Does the map appear when the page laods? Do you see any text above the map?
By Daft Logic on 7th October 2015
FireFox 40.0.3, enabled all the page, still can't read the instructions nor the question. Even not white-on-white, just they don't appear.
Read all the page, top to bottom: no way.
By sky on 6th October 2015
RadarRecon, sorry, that was a mistake. It should say above the map.
By Daft Logic on 20th September 2015
"Read the instructions below the map and when asked to find a country you should click on the map where that country is."

Okay, I read the instructions and then restarted the game. Where does it ask "find a country"?
By RadarRecon on 19th September 2015
I love it!
On 24th August 2015
Also stuck on Netherlands. Love this game. Please fix this issue so I can continue playing. Thanks!!!
On 28th July 2015
Stuck on the Netherlands. Put my marker right to the east of Ijsselmeer (which is 100% NL) but got kicked out (53N | 530' E). If you still maintain this game (great fun btw. :) ) please correct this issue.

I used to fly passengers from Honolulu to Sydney. My goodness, where did I drop these people off? I thought Sydney was in Australia....but there is no Australia!!!
By gibby on 29th October 2014
make a version with borders on, will make it more fun finding small countries
On 30th August 2014
So, Australia is not Australia?
On 10th August 2014
So Crimea's not Ukraine...
On 15th June 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 14th May 2014
chrishna, the boarders are deliberately omitted to make it harder.
By Daft Logic on 3rd April 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 3rd April 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 3rd April 2014
Don't see how people can't get Australia. It works for me.
By Pete on 24th March 2014
Can't get out of the first country Australia Daaah !!!
On 22nd March 2014
nice didn't get Turkey cause my ant makes it
By gertrude on 6th January 2014
good game, needs borders including
though
On 1st December 2013
Yea. It's stuck on Australia.
On 18th November 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
