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.

Comments For This Page

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
??? - things are getting obscure now! haha. A note will be posted once an update has been made.
By Daft Logic on 5th November 2018
Thank you. You moved Svalbard and Jan Mayen back, but you haven't fixed it yet. Can you? When you moved it back, I got to 117 points.
By ??? on 5th November 2018
Thank you. Using your map source (Esri) I got to 111 points and Svalbard and Jan Mayen is wrong.
By ??? on 5th November 2018
Well done for getting so far! Swaziland / Eswatini should now work
By Daft Logic on 4th November 2018
I know where you got the source of the map, and using it, Swaziland was wrong at 102 points. I clicked northeast of the Jozini Dam and it was still wrong.

Your game actually beat the expert. :) I got 95 when I missed Benin.

Hi, please give Czech Republic another go!
By Daft Logic on 1st November 2018
*didn't. Happy Halloween too!
By ??? on 31st October 2018
Czechia didn%u2019t work again for some reason.
By ??? on 31st October 2018
Czech Republic (Czechia) has had a fix applied.
By Daft Logic on 30th October 2018
Thx for fixing Bosnia & Herzegovina, but Czech Republic still didn't work.
By ??? on 30th October 2018
Thank you, but Czech Republic is bugged too, just when you fixed Bosnia & Herzegovina.
By ??? on 29th October 2018
Sorry, but for some reason the update didn't work. :(
By ??? on 29th October 2018
Bosnia and Herzegovina is now sorted. No problem, your feedback is much appreciated and helps improve the quality of this game. Thank you.
By Daft Logic on 28th October 2018
There is another bug with Bosnia & Herzegovina. I hope you are not tired of my comments, I just want to make the game more fun and not limited for experts, limiting them to this country or that, kind of making the game boring when it's limited with bugs.
By ??? on 27th October 2018
Thanks for the feedback! D.R. / Dominican Republic should now work
By Daft Logic on 26th October 2018
There's another bug with Dominican Republic.
By ??? on 25th October 2018
Awesome! Got to 74 points when French Southern and Antarctic Lands was bugged. Did it have a long name like Democratic Republic of the Congo that caused an error? Can you fix that too?
By ??? on 24th October 2018
Antarctica has been pushed down the list!
By Daft Logic on 24th October 2018
Thanks! You fixed New Zealand, but just two countries away, Antarctica is bugged, even though I clicked on the right spot. Antarctica is right after Hungary from New Zealand. Otherwise, can you fix this?
By ??? on 23rd October 2018
For some reason the update didn't work, and at a certain point it said "undefined". Can you fix this
By ??? on 12th October 2018
A bug fix applied yesterday should stop it stalling on some countries. Instead of stalling it will ask user to try a second time
By Daft Logic on 11th October 2018
Yes, but can you fix New Zealand? That was in my last comment.
By ??? on 11th October 2018
Faroe Islands have been removed
By Daft Logic on 11th October 2018
I see you removed Democratic Republic of the Congo, you fixed that bug, however you still haven't removed Faroe Islands, and sometimes it still doesn't work. When you removed Democratic Republic of the Congo, I got to New Zealand, and there is another bug. It was not that I clicked on the right place and I was still wrong, but when I clicked on New Zealand, it doesn't get to the next country, even if I click it on the same country or even in a wrong area, it doesn't work. Can you fix that too?
