Nice series, pretty original - at least not overdone, yet.

Hi lku06106! I am the new curator for Oceania. I really like this quiz and this idea, and it doesn't seem to be very well known yet. I would love to select this quiz as a Curator Pick. There are just a few things I'd like to tweak before I do. Send me an email and we can discuss it, my email is on my profile :)

I haven't tried this one yet because I have no idea what "qwerty" order would be. I mean I know what "qwerty" refers to on a keyboard, but still can't imagine what "qwerty order" could be...

Looks like "qwerty order" means alphabetical order if the alphabet was in the order of a qwerty keyboard, top row left to right, second row left to right etc. So words starting with "Q" are first qwerty-betically. Words starting with "A" come after words starting with "P". Words starting with "M" would be last. My trouble was remembering that using the second letter also follows the same rule: e.g. Croatia would come before Canada, since "R" comes before "A", qwerty-betically speaking that is.

Yeh it's the order of the keyboard.
Comment below threshold:

I do not like this "qwerty order" idea at all.

Too bad i have a "QWERTZ"-keyboard...

I went about starting with the T countries, but I couldn't figure out the fact that they were in qwerty order within a given starting letter as well. That's really tough.

If nothing else, the word "qwerty-betical" is inordinately fun to say. Fun quiz, thanks.

I use the Dvorak layout myself, but the physical keys on my keyboard are still in QWERTY order, so...I had to look.

Pretty sure Micronesia should come before Marshall Islands

That was weird for my brain!!

@shorlin: thanks for the explanation - that was a lot of fun! Ran out of time halfway through typing the final country.
