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 enter your name on to the high score list.

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

Difficulty Ranking

This game will record everytime 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 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.

Samoa has been removed

I believe there may also be an error in Samoa.

Swaziland has been removed. Eswatini is on the list and should work. Thanks for the feedback!
By Daft Logic on 15th March 2019
There´s a bug on the game. Swaziland (or Eswatini) always returns an error, but I'm sure I am clicking well within the countries borders.

Sorry but I'm leaving. This means I'm not coming to help anymore, except on your Click For Country, in which dependencies are considered to be part of the country it's depending on. Don't be mad though. It's actually hard work, and my interest has worn off. This is the last comment i'm writing on this page. I hope I made the game a lot better than it once was. I'm helping you specifically on Click For Country because it works with the Find Country On Map Game, eg Guadeloupe and Martinique being "part" of France because it's just the country it's depending on. I will give all the dependencies still "part" of their countries because their depending on it on your Click For Country Sandbox. After that I will leave. :( Sorry. Happy New Year!

St Vincent and the Grenadines. I know that all the countries and territories are related and will react the same for your Click For Country. On Click For Country, it said Saint Vincent and the Grenadines but not St Vincent and the Grenadines. Another example is that when I clicked on the Aland Islands, it said it was part of Finland. Another one was that when I clicked on Saint Helena, it said Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha. The names probably don't match the game. Maybe if you change Click For Country a bit, it will fix the bugs.

Faroe Islands. Why do you keep returning all the bugged countries?
By ??? on 26th November 2018
Antarctica.

Myanmar (Burma). Can you also announce that the Find USA States On Map Game is working again? No one has been on that leaderboard except me.
By ??? on 24th November 2018
St Vincent and the Grenadines. Again. Like what I said on Saint Helena.
By ??? on 24th November 2018
Also, thanks for fixing the Find USA States on Map Game. It had been bugged. I have been on there, when Oregon never worked, but never commented the issue of the entire game not working. I am now on the Find USA States on Map Game leaderboard. I'm working on finishing all the 50 states, usually hard on the landlocked states. This might make you even busier, but can you add borders to Alaska and Canada? It doesn't have it. If you could fix all the bugs on the Find Country On Map Game, if I even get to all the countries of the world, including territories like Isle Of Man, Jersey, and Guernsey, (and using Esri along the way, I know that's cheating) could you add borders to the Find Country On Map Game? It would make things easier for other people. Sometimes I see people score 0 on the leaderboard. However, you can put borders on the Find Country On Map Game later, after all the bugs in this game are fixed. You can do Alaska and Canada's borders a bit earlier than doing ALL of the world's borders.

St Helena. Why did you bring it back again if it was bugged?
By ??? on 23rd November 2018
Aland Islands
By ??? on 22nd November 2018
I'll just take it back. I will just say the name of the country that is bugged. Myanmar (Burma)
By ??? on 22nd November 2018
It bugged again on St Vincent and the Grenadines... Maybe check the game daily for any bugs so I don't have to remind you every time...
By ??? on 22nd November 2018
St Helena was bugged too though. I really didn't need Esri to find it though.
By ??? on 21st November 2018
New Caledonia has just been downgraded. There is some natural re-ordering as users get questions wrong and right. As time goes on, easier countries float to the top. But, yes , some big manual edits are needed to fix countries that can never be 'found'.
By Daft Logic on 21st November 2018
I see you moved New Caledonia back, replacing it with Mauritius, but you haven't fixed New Caledonia. Maybe delete it if it isn't working.
By ??? on 20th November 2018
New Caledonia is bugged. I know it's a French dependency, so I clicked on New Caledonia when the game told me to find France. Sure enough, it counted it! This was the same for Reunion, Guadeloupe, Martinique, and French Guiana. I think New Caledonia was still "French" in the game, making it wrong and causing the "bug", so New Caledonia's territory was not really in the game because it's territory was "French" in the game. Please fix this.

Thank you. I got to 121 points when Samoa was bugged. I clicked on the island of Savai'i, but it was wrong.

French Polynesia has been cleaned up (removed)
By Daft Logic on 6th November 2018
On French Polynesia, I clicked on the main island of Tahiti, but it was bugged, ending up on 119 points.

Svalbard and Jan Mayen has been downgraded (moved away)
By Daft Logic on 5th November 2018
