Feel free to make constructive suggestions, or correct any typos I may have made. Enjoy :)

Good quiz and no typos that I can see. Maybe, looking at the results, you're being a bit generous with the time, I would try knocking a couple of minutes off.
Apr 13th, 2010 at 11:56 GMT
Much enjoyed, thanks - frsutrated to have missed Liechtenstein, though!!
Apr 13th, 2010 at 13:19 GMT
Nice quiz. Let'a all welcome Botswana into the exclusive club of the Stans :)
Apr 13th, 2010 at 17:10 GMT
I actually quite like the time limit ... it gives 16 seconds per answer. Some answers are easier, so perhaps there's around 20 seconds each for the harder ones. It has a fairly good spread too. If people do think it's too much time, I might drop it by a minute, but no more. And yes, putting "stan" on the end of Botswana was intentional ;)

I think the time limit (8 minutes) is okay. This quiz is great it got me thinking--and I am good at unscrambling things; I got 25/30 only because i had no idea what 5 countries were. Good job--I nominated it.

i don't think you really need the regions - kinda makes it a bit too easy. having said that, great quiz.

Uruguay's scramble seems to be missing a "U". (YUUARG) Or is it aN "U"? Either way....

missing i in tiibark
Dec 8th, 2010 at 04:40 GMT
Two errors and this gets published...pfft
Dec 8th, 2010 at 04:47 GMT
Five minutes seems like a bit much.
Dec 8th, 2010 at 05:43 GMT
i agree about shortening the time, but great quiz otherwise!
Dec 8th, 2010 at 06:04 GMT
Serbia's anagram isn't too flattering...
Dec 8th, 2010 at 08:45 GMT
Does anyone else think that Unavuta already sounds like it could be in Oceania?
Dec 8th, 2010 at 12:10 GMT
Giving the continents seems unnecessary given the time.
Dec 8th, 2010 at 12:59 GMT
@slamb: I was going to say the same thing, although I did refer to them often. Maybe it would be way too hard without the hints? Still a good quiz.
Dec 8th, 2010 at 14:17 GMT
Continents make it too easy.
Dec 8th, 2010 at 15:13 GMT
Finally 'Liechtenstein' gets some play time!
Dec 8th, 2010 at 16:05 GMT
@iceman1731: at least the errors got corrected quickly.
Dec 8th, 2010 at 16:12 GMT
For the first time in my whole life, i have managed to spell Liechtenstein correctly. Shame about Djibouti...
Dec 8th, 2010 at 16:24 GMT
I don't know if this happened to anyone else, but I had Liechtenstein spelled correctly and it wouldn't register for me as being correct. I checked it more than once, too. Otherwise, I thought it was fun, though a minute or two less probably wouldn't hurt.
Dec 9th, 2010 at 16:52 GMT
@iceman1731, @PiiXiiE: Wow, just found out this got published. Also, not to mar the creators of Sporcle or anything, but I'm pretty sure this was error free when I published it, and it's been altered. There's been a couple of modifications (I used to have a great trick answer - Wobastan = Botswana - see the archived comment by @Mayan). I could be wrong and have made a couple mistakes (that no one pointed out during its user-created play), but I don't believe so (I know Uruguay has 7 letters - can't imagine I would have screwed that up).

Finally got Singapore with 2 seconds to spare. :)
Oct 13th, 2011 at 07:08 GMT
oh my god, only missed singapore...and im of singpaore descent. im so embarrassed because i have so much pride...in my defense it was really hard...
Nov 24th, 2011 at 20:36 GMT
yeah i think singapore was the hardest I had a minute but just couldn't get it
Mar 1st, 2012 at 15:34 GMT
I don't think you need to make us guess the answers in order on this one.
May 17th, 2012 at 17:13 GMT
I played this thinking oh with the continents this will be really easy. I was mistaken...
Jun 18th, 2012 at 04:38 GMT
Way too EASY!! The continents should not be given. Good quiz, though. I finished in under 2 minutes
Jun 19th, 2012 at 13:45 GMT
@Brownys: Looking at the statistics (current percentile values are: 16.3%, 15.1%, 15%, 16.3%, 14.6%, 10.1%, 6.9%, 5.7%), it's actually very well balanced. Perhaps barely on the easy side (it's not quite a bell curve) but it's certainly not "Way too easy!" I'm very happy with the difficulty.
Aug 1st, 2012 at 23:03 GMT
loose the continents . great quiz though :). 4 stars
