Has anyone else been to sporcle.com? If not, I recommend trying. It's very addicting. If anyone can beat 135 countries on the "name all the countries in the World" quiz, post your score.

92 and then I had to give up.  All those island nations are a bugger.   Also I missed a bunch of countries because I... um... can't spell.  And, of course, on seeing the answer I had a lot of "how could I have forgotten them" moments.

This is something for me Grin
Will try it now.

Edit: You got 159 out of 195 Countries of the World.

Last minute or so I was pretty lost Lips Sealed

As for the US, I got 42/50 and then blocked out completely!

I haven't tried, but it seems to me that the trick would be to do it in some sensible order. And of course you need to know the material. I could do the US states, since I'm very familiar with their arrangement, but I don't have the countries of, say, Africa properly mapped out in my head. Even though I know the names, and know where most are, it's not enough.

You got 165 out of 195 Countries of the World.

Damn spending 30 seconds trying to spell Leichtenstein, and another 30 trying to spell Suriname!

Wow, very impressive. I had to practice to get to 135. The African and Micronesian countries are the hardest.
