    I had the same problem, but even without it I would never have come up with 95 !! I only got 64, so that's about 70 if you take in the ones that were rejected because I couldn't spell them right.

    82.

    I'm disappointed. I could name way more than 82 countries, I just couldn't type them. A lot of back-spacing
    Go to sleep, iguana.

    You'd better I mean, it's under your nose right there half the time on this forum

    Morrocco was a different storry though I still have no clue how it's spelled!
    Easier for me, because it's Maroc in French, so I know it's not the R that's doubled, so it's gotta be the C: Morocco

    also misspelled- Egypt (not Egipt!), Kazahkstan,
    Forgot those two

    Papau New Guinea,
    PapUA

    Belgium,
    I'd have to punish myself if I misspelled that one :rolli: Though forgetting what the Pays-Bas are called in English (the Netherlands) probably deserves some kind of punishment too

    United Kingdom,
    I remember thinking "Aw, come on, I have to spell it all out :steam: !?"

    and Libya (not to mention all the other stans with exception of Pakistan and many countries in Northern Africa and Eastern Europe :sad
    I got Uzbekistan And I got most of the European countries. Forgot Romania, Moldovia, Albania, and a few others, and all the Baltic countries too.

    Bizarely though, I spelled Myanmar correctly
    Heh The one that stumped me was Chile: I couldn't get out of the French spelling, Chili.

    Second try got 94.

    This game is also a typing test, and a matter of tactics.
    You do better if you remember which countries have the shortest names.

    Remember Chad, France, Laos, and Spain. One syllable each.
    Go to sleep, iguana.

    I also noticed some other problems...
    Like, there are different spelling for certain nations.
    Secondly, if you enter Greenland, you can't enter Denmark.
    That's confusing. Just have Denmark, or count Greenland as sovereign.
    Go to sleep, iguana.

    And another piece of advice. You'll score higher if you take your time answering.

    I scored 73, but I wasted 30 seconds before I figured out that I had to spell out "United States" and "United Kingdom", which were the first two countries I tried to enter.
