Countries around the World Quiz

Quiz Details

How many of the countries in the world can you name? Simply type the name of a country in the text box; if it’s correct it will be highlighted in the map. Quiz Notes - Since the world is such a crowded place we couldn’t, however much we tried, match the positioning of all of the country ‘name labels’ to the country’s position on the map. For this Countries of the World quiz we have included many small country and island nations however the scale of the map means that they don’t actually show on the map. For this quiz we have not included principalities and territories.

Map Rules

You have a set time to answer each Map Quiz which is shown at the start of the quiz.

If you do not enter all of the answers in the allocated time the quiz will time out and whatever score you have achieved thus far will be your final score. Use of the back button is prohibited.

Leaderboard positions are decided by the number of correct answers achieved in the amount of time it has taken to do this e.g. the person with the highest score achieved in the shortest time will top the Leaderboard.

Map Quiz Scoring System

To make it interesting Quiz Factor combines the scores from both the hard and easy versions of a Map Quiz in one Leaderboard.

To ensure that those players who complete the hard version of a quiz are not penalised we weight the scoring to compensate. This is how it works: A player gets one point for each correct answer which is multiplied by a base score of 100 (for easy) or 120 (for hard). One point for each remaining second is added to this total.

E.g. 18 (correct questions) X 100 (easy base score) = 1,800 + 37 (seconds left) = 1,837 (Total points) 18 (correct questions) X 120 (hard base score) = 2,160 + 37 (seconds left) = 2,197 (Total points)

The number of total points determines your position in the Leaderboard.

If a hard version of a quiz is a lot more difficult that the easy version e.g. difficult spellings, then we may increase the hard base score to 130 or 140 to compensate.
