Nice! I managed 40, twice, with different countries. At about 38 my brain freaks out and stops functioning. :-P

I got 69, but I found myself hung up on the British Isles and that fried my brain so much that I slowed down and ran out of time rather than countries. Freakin' U.K. :P

I was all over the map:

Andorra, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bahamas, Bangladesh, Brazil, Burma, Canada, Cape Verde, Chile, China, Colombia, Cuba, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Egypt, El Salvador, Estonia, Finland, France, Ghana, Haiti, Hungary, India, Iran, Iraq, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Madagascar, Malaysia, Mauritania, Mexico, Moldova, Monaco, Mongolia, Nauru, New Zealand, North Korea, Norway, Oman, Pakistan, Palau, Paraguay, Peru, Portugal, Republic of the Congo, Romania, Russia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Saudi Arabia, Seychelles, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Suriname, Sweden, Syria, United States, Uruguay, Uzbekistan, Venezuela, Vietnam

and I was poised to type Qatar when I ran out of time. I'd love to see some psych person analyse my thought process, as somehow South Africa suggested Mongolia to me and I skipped merrily around the globe. :D

That's awesome, I <3 geography. I got 63. But yeah, I cannot type fast enough. I don't run out of countries, I run out of time and failure to spell uzaebekastan. That's still not right. :( I'm going to try again! Thanks for link!

LOL! That is the first one I type. I was trying to go by continents, but then I get all flustered by the time and then it tells me that scotland is not a country and I freak out. I don't like seeing the timer go down!

hehe. I can always get more in the last minute than I think. I try to think by continents too. Like picturing a map in my head. Yeah, Scotland is a (territory? type thing) within the UK, like England is.

45, though if I could spell them, I'd've had three more.

10

Does it count that I spent over 3 minutes trying to get it to accept Great Britan and England?

Probably not. There are so many hard to spell country names, and ones that go by multiple names.

I kept accidentally typing the 'local' names because we use the native term for each country at work:
Deutschland, nippon, République française, Awstrayleeah (kidding about that one)

71. Mostly missing countries from South/Central America, Africa, and South/Southeast Europe.

I just got 85. I have been practicing naming countries when I'm trying to fall asleep at night.

Also, it took me FOREVER to find this post of yours. I was looking at your tags. The "link" tag never occurred to me!

Wow, good for you!! Is this part of the North Korea, South Korea thing?? :)

Ha ha. I think you should be very afraid that you understand how my mind works! Yeah, I try to name as many countries as I can every night to help me fall asleep. I can name about 95-98 countries before falling asleep now, which is 100% improvement! And whenever I get to Asia, I go: North Korea, South Korea, Marilyn Monroe.

I got a mere 55. I'm a slow typer. I'm missing much of the new Eastern Europe, and most of Africa.
