vintage travel posters are so amazing; thanks for turning them into a quiz. :D (i would've never been able to guess 2b--don't think i was even in the right hemisphere, lol)
Jun 28th, 2011 at 20:39 GMT
Great quiz! I found 2B difficult as well. The image is just a little too small to see on my computer.
Jun 28th, 2011 at 20:52 GMT
Really lovely quiz.
Jun 28th, 2011 at 20:56 GMT
Neat quiz. Agreed, the pictures could be bigger.
Jun 28th, 2011 at 21:33 GMT
Sorry about the size of the image but I think it's best for the quiz, the image 2B shows the silhouette of a Viking ship emblem of the country in question. Thanks for playing! :D

A background color other than yellow might be nice - at first I didn't see that the individual cells were lighting up and thought it was a "guess in any order" quiz!
Jun 28th, 2011 at 23:39 GMT
Great Quiz. A couple of the pix were difficult to distinguish.
Jun 29th, 2011 at 06:58 GMT
Very cool! Do you mind sharing the source, if you got them all from one place? I'd like to see more like them, or at least see these up close.
Jun 29th, 2011 at 12:26 GMT
novel idea, and well executed
Jun 29th, 2011 at 15:30 GMT
I love the fact kiwis (the little bird on the australia poster) is not native to australia but New Zealand.
Jun 29th, 2011 at 17:16 GMT
Because giraffes only live in South Africa. They could have picked something a BIT more distinctive.

@hollabackitsobi what like a gang rape or mugging
Jun 30th, 2011 at 01:21 GMT
I guiltily laughed at lpw88's comment.

I typed in "MOOSE" and then realized that Moose is not a country. I like meese.
Jun 30th, 2011 at 17:59 GMT
Great quiz, but the Norway is too obscure in my opinion.
Jul 1st, 2011 at 02:44 GMT
@JollyRoger2: The Norway poster does make sense, if you've ever found yourself pining for the fjords. *wink*
Jul 1st, 2011 at 06:48 GMT
[While pondering 2B] "Hmmm, is it Thailand that has those viking-esque longboats? Nope. Maybe Vietnam? No. Cambodia? Damn, who is it that has those viking looking boats?!?" Great quiz!
Jul 1st, 2011 at 09:52 GMT
Most of these are surprisingly easy. The only one I didn't get was Norway, and it's no surprise that it's least guessed. These are cool posters, what is the source of them, could you give me a link?
Jul 1st, 2011 at 18:11 GMT
I have taken the pictures from different sources, I leave you this link where you will find some of the images and many more: http://www.allposters.com/-st/Viajes-arte-vintage-Posters_c6439_.htm

Great quiz. My only issue is that, once I had done my first pass, there were no coordinates beside the clue box, so I was kind of guessing blind regarding which poster I was on.
Jul 10th, 2011 at 07:53 GMT
I tried every Spanish-speaking country for A1 and was so puzzled as to what it could be... before trying the most obvious one... silly me.

how is this a history quiz? geography maybe, too bad there's no category for national stereotypes
Jul 13th, 2011 at 08:02 GMT
I love how Norway is portrayed like Fiji or Hawaii with that sun and those palm trees!
Aug 5th, 2011 at 21:36 GMT
I was guessing tropical and caribbean nations for the Norway one, then I looked a little closer and thought: "is that a fjord? Hmm, it's a stretch but maybe ill guess some scandinavian countries..."

Does anyone else wish the pictures were a lot bigger? I can barely make out any details in many of them, leaving me with few clues from which to guess the answer. Just a thought.
Aug 7th, 2011 at 04:19 GMT
Well that's certainly not the image I picture when I think of the least guessed answer...
Aug 7th, 2011 at 04:24 GMT
@Sporctastic: Agreed, but the shape of the picture looked like the typical ship associated with that part of the world, and a few guesses got me there. (Unlike the giraffes, that had me naming half of Africa,,,)
Aug 7th, 2011 at 04:32 GMT
You can make the pictures bigger by pressing CTRL+ . I usually do CTRL+ several times for quizzes like these. The pictures won't be the best quality but at least they're bigger.
Aug 7th, 2011 at 04:36 GMT
Fabulous quiz idea and great fun! I too wish the pics could be bigger but it's Sporcle. I think maybe only Norway and Morocco are really affected.
Aug 7th, 2011 at 04:38 GMT
I guessed Japan when I saw the pagoda in China and then didn't get Japan. What a dope!
Aug 7th, 2011 at 04:39 GMT
Was this Germany poster before or after the Hindenburg?
Aug 7th, 2011 at 04:48 GMT
Based on the results of this quiz, I think a certain country needs to be brought up on false advertising charges.
Aug 7th, 2011 at 05:23 GMT
The Norway one isn't that hard - Its obviously the shape of either a gondola or a viking ship. And that picture looks nothing like Venice. A better question is why is there a KIWI in the Austalian poster - when Kiwi's are only found in New Zealand?
Aug 7th, 2011 at 05:24 GMT
I love these posters. Would make great wall art.
Aug 7th, 2011 at 05:27 GMT
Awesome quiz. I actually think the smaller pictures makes it more of an enjoyable challenge.
Aug 7th, 2011 at 05:28 GMT
@weststigersbob Could that kiwi looking bird be a kookaburra?
Aug 7th, 2011 at 06:49 GMT
@lisawc definitely looks more like a kiwi than a kookaburra. the beak is too long and slim.
Aug 7th, 2011 at 06:58 GMT
I slapped myself when I missed morocco.
Aug 7th, 2011 at 08:03 GMT
Never would've thought Norway, good quiz.
Aug 7th, 2011 at 08:11 GMT
I would love to know the source of these images, I want to know more about these artists and I could decorate my entire house with them
