Try this site, see how much you know about the "real world." Quite interesting.

WORLD MAP - countries of the world

Click the "start" tab, and go for it.

that was fun, thanks!
My only complaint is that the map is so small, sometimes it was difficult to 'hit' the correct country.

I also think the timer needs to go a little longer. Three seconds to try to pinpoint the cursor on Luxembourg is dexterally challenging.

Shoot, I only got 30. But I clicked all over where Haiti should be, and still didn't get the cursor positioned exactly right.

The first time I got a 41, the second time a 22.
And DC - don't feel badly, I couldn't click on Haiti either. Those damn small islands/nations are a ***** on that game

Very cool game, I was lucky to get 34. Choosing the wrong country reduces your time, very neat the way its set up, where in the hell is the Kingdom of Brunei?

I also had trouble with the former Soviet Republics in central Asia. And Africa is often a guessing game

60? Wow, good job, you must really know your geography.

Brunei is small country on the island of Borneo. I thought the entire island of Borneo was part of Indonesia but I learned its made up of three different countries
