To join the Geography Challenge in support of your country, you simply need to select which country you will be representing and take the quiz. This quiz consists of trying to locate 10 randomly selected countries on a map of the world. It is different every time. You may take this quiz up to 3 times per day, but no cheating. It is a timed quiz.
This is a really difficult geography quiz (or do I just think it is difficult because I don’t know my geography very well?). Give it a go and tell me how you did.
My scores; 3, 5, 7 correct out of ten possible (it takes a little while to figure out how to navigate on the world map, too). I found that I tended to choose the country next to the country I was supposed to click on. The former Soviet Union drove me crazy, as did the little tab thingies, especially in the Caribbean, where there are a dozen or so of those tabs that are very close to each other. My best areas were South America, Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands.
The country I was representing on this quiz was .. Indonesia. I am sure the Indonesians are all mad at me now because of my terrible scores (sorry).
Well, at least my scores were improving with each quiz.
