Good quiz but I think the pictures are too large as it's really annoying scrolling up and down!
Apr 23rd, 2010 at 16:36 GMT
Hmm, can't believe i missed number 5 and 8. 14 was tricky...
Apr 24th, 2010 at 02:50 GMT
good quiz but the pictures could be much smaller and you need to make the time shorter ( just my a minute or two
Apr 24th, 2010 at 03:38 GMT
The different text on the passports helps! Good distribution of countries I think. Times slightly long. Cut it down by 1-2minutes
Apr 24th, 2010 at 09:19 GMT
It was all going so well until Luxembourg!
Sep 18th, 2010 at 15:03 GMT
Pictures are too large. You can also accept only "China", not "People's Republic of China".
Sep 21st, 2011 at 19:05 GMT
Everything but Luxembourg. Luxembourg?
Feb 20th, 2013 at 17:49 GMT
Got them all - It helps knowing the countries flags as the symbols are often replicated on the passport
Feb 20th, 2013 at 21:26 GMT
What's clear is that the Swiss didn't want to design a normal passport.
Feb 20th, 2013 at 22:24 GMT
Like this quiz a lot, but wished there were more countries. Pictures are not too large - how are we to guess if we can't see any detail on the coats of arms? As it was, some were very hard to see
Feb 21st, 2013 at 06:38 GMT
I like the Swiss passport. Very cool.
Feb 21st, 2013 at 11:17 GMT
It also helps knowing the rules on the EU passports.

Brazil had me derailed into thinking I was missing a Pacific nation.
Feb 22nd, 2013 at 01:01 GMT
@Golden: if the images were larger, Brazil would have been a plain giveaway. The legends on the emblem are "República Federativa do Brasil - 15 de Novembro de 1889".

What about Kyrgyzstan's passport?
Feb 22nd, 2013 at 16:31 GMT
Glad to see Luxembourg on there. ^^
Feb 22nd, 2013 at 22:29 GMT
Being, or having been, a stamp collector helps. The same is probably true of coin collecting.

@hejman -- i dont get it lol... maybe im just too tired!! Very challenging, as no matter how well traveled you might be, you'll never see a passport outside of your country of residence... its not something you'd learn in school.. very difficult... i swore i did australia though, i guess i typoed it... great quiz!
Feb 24th, 2013 at 04:41 GMT
I don't think I ever would have gotten Kenya, but knowing that's what it is, I can now see the shield and spears pretty clearly.
Feb 24th, 2013 at 05:03 GMT
I recognised the Korean lettering, and I'm embarrassed to say that I actually wondered for a second which Korea it could be :P
Feb 24th, 2013 at 05:17 GMT
Anybody else guess Tonga instead of Switzerland? No? Just me?
Feb 24th, 2013 at 07:07 GMT
A friend of mine once worked in immigration and did a few photocopies she showed to us to guess the countries, very much like this one. It is amazing how much you can sometimes deduce (if I remember correctly, Cameroon has its shape on it as an example), I enjoyed it back then, I enjoyed this one.
That being said, with all the advantage, I did abysmal. Especially Lux: I already narrowed it down to the lowlands due to the CoA and tried two of them before I gave up...
Feb 24th, 2013 at 09:34 GMT
Awesome quiz, I loved it. Working in an international airport probably gave me an advantage. It is interesting to deduce the countries by either the lettering or the coats of arms. I propose New Zealand or Ireland for sequels - theirs are my favourites (geek alert)

Jason Bourne would ace this quiz.
Feb 24th, 2013 at 10:49 GMT
What, no Kyrgyzstan?
Feb 24th, 2013 at 11:08 GMT
Oh I was hopeless at this game :( Interesting though.

Fun game. Having a few of these in the house helps.
Feb 24th, 2013 at 12:51 GMT
Who got Australia because of the kangaroos:)
Feb 24th, 2013 at 13:26 GMT
Zbignich is Jason Bourne....
Feb 24th, 2013 at 13:51 GMT
this may be petty, but you should take UK instead of typing out United Kingdom. I mean the quiz took USA?
Feb 24th, 2013 at 14:49 GMT
I entered UK and it worked... maybe you misspelled?
Feb 24th, 2013 at 16:20 GMT
The first page of my father's Spanish passport, issued in 1948, reads PASAPORTE-PASSEPORT ESPAÑA-ESPAGNE. And all the legends inside were also bilingual Spanish-French. Nowadays, it seems incredible that as late as 1948 a document intended to be understood all over the world hadn't a single word in English, but that's true. French was still the language of diplomacy and international relations. (That also explains why a sport of British origin like football/soccer is ruled by an organization with a French name, i.e. the Fédération Internationale de Football Association [FIFA], although this is more understandable as it was founded in 1904).

I did not know the American passport had a Star of David on it. Interesting.
Feb 24th, 2013 at 21:31 GMT
I much preferred our old UK passport to the EU one which we all have to have now!
Feb 24th, 2013 at 22:21 GMT
The Swiss' freedom of EU luddites means they can go stylish as hell with theirs, and so they have
Feb 24th, 2013 at 23:48 GMT
@Jeffhabfan: I knew that at the top of the Great Seal of the United States there are 13 stars that stand for the original 13 colonies. What I hadn't noticed until reading your comment is that if you connect the stars with six lines you get a perfect Star of David (plus one star at the center).

and Switzerland wins the prize for best overall design!

the Luxembourgish is my favourite ♥ :)
