Accept USA for United States of America and DRC for Democratic Republic of the Congo. Also, it's spelt Vanuatu and I think Ivory Coast should be a bonus as it's officially called "Cote d'Ivoire". Good idea though. :)

Also, you should accept UAE for United Arab Emirates. It's standard for Sporcle, as are the things Harkinson mentioned.

Surprisingly hard, and a nice twist on the "countries with..." theme. I don't know if you meant to format it the way you did, but if you leave the hint heading blank on the "game info" page, the black, empty columns won't appear.

Thankyou for the comments.I have decided to change Ivory Coast for one I previously missed.

clever game, I like it

I sucked at this!

Does anyone know if it's better to think of letter combinations and try to think of countries that fit that or if you should think of countries and then see if they have consecutive letters? I tried mostly the latter and I missed so many. NOrway? TUnisia? Nope, no consecutive letters there.

How did I miss all the stans???!!

@Flick Ah, so this is your first game... I was wondering why you were challenging folks to it.
@caramba Yeah, realizing that saved me... but I only realized I was about to miss them when I noticed that Kyrgyzstan (of course) had a Y-Z. Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if that's what inspired Flick to make the quiz ;)
Feb 16th, 2011 at 02:38 GMT
hmmm, so no
mbia or Tan
nia etc for bonuses?

I got Kyrgyzstan, thinking of the "yz" pair... didn't even think of the "st" in -stan that I missed the other -stans.

This is hard, challenging and lots of fun! I really enjoyed it.

Great quiz Flick. Came up with the idea to do a quiz like this in the early hours of this morning, but it seems I missed out by about 3 years! You even put the same bonus answers as I had! Only issue is that Palestine now needs adding, but I've still nominated it

@JoeFd: I too had the game game as an early hour thought :) Thanx for reminding me about Palestine, it's great to level up the columns at last
