shouldn't it be parts of Delaware, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania? The colony was mainly located in New Jersey and the capital was in Delaware, well of course Delaware didn't exist then, but the claim was to parts of all 3 present day states.

Virginia was claimed by *England*, not Great Britain, at least prior to 1707.

I'm not sure when Germany is supposed to have ruled Venezuela, and you're missing Denmark, which ruled what are now the U.S. Virgin Islands until 1917.

Since Venezuela became independent before Germany existed as a nation...

You could add Scotland, if not for Nova Scotia, at the very least for the ultimately failed colony of Darien, Panama.

do it in order, it's too easy this way, we can just start naming all the European countries.
May 16th, 2010 at 22:04 GMT
take that apostrophe out of the title. it's making my eyes water.

Why are the other questions hidden?

when the hell did Prussia own Venezuela and if they did, don't take Germany for Prussia
May 17th, 2010 at 21:58 GMT
prussia never owned venezuela but they led a failed attempt to colonize it along with other German states

Not quite sure what you mean by "claims". If you're talking historically, the Dutch didn't "claim" New York, they founded and owned it. Ditto most of the others. On the other hand, if you're talking in the present tense, which you appear to be, none of these countries "claim" those territories today... maybe you should change your wording so that we know what you're trying to say?

There really isn't a need for the clues to be hidden. Just make it so you have to answer in order, that way if you don't know an early answer you can still play the quiz.

Prussia and Germany neither one count for "Prussia and German States"? Baha.

So just to justify this quiz and terminology: Hereby I claim New York back. Is this enough of a claim for you =D

Don't take UK for England. Two different countries.
Apr 14th, 2011 at 15:07 GMT
Claims is a much more appropriate terminology than "control." Funny that @D3nn1s would make that joke, because in many cases that is precisely what happened.

My recommendations: 1) Have us answer in order, just don't hide the clues. 2) Reduce the time to 1 minute.
