33/44 with an average error of 158 miles. I'm still reeling from successfully getting Belarus in the right place with no help!

34/44 Must Try Harder!

UK was quite tricky... but got most of them!!

Hulababy Fri 27-May-05 16:57:04

75% - but found it really hard. Some I only got because of the shapes of the countries and the spaces remaining.

27/44 with an average error of 250 miles 61% correct and took 290 seconds

86%, 38/44. so who did know where san marino was?1

serenity Fri 27-May-05 17:14:27

29/44 but I gave up geography when I was 14 so I wasn't surprised at that, average error was 202 miles which I thought was OK, I got everything in roughly the right place!

41 - 93% correct, average error 36 miles. Missed on Slovenia, Leichtenstein and Malta.

I knew San Marino, hc, but I've been there!

Hulababy Fri 27-May-05 17:47:08

How did you all manage to get the really tiny ones in excactly the right spot?

Janh Fri 27-May-05 17:48:05

You don't have to be exactly right hula, just close - within the range of the box they're in I think.

hoxtonchick Fri 27-May-05 17:48:45

you are v. cultured jan! i messed up malta & lichenstein too...

Janh Fri 27-May-05 17:53:47

Aha, just did it again, this time I got several little landlocked ones first and only scored 38 - 86%. (Also managed to misplace Portugal, whoopsie.) Average error 37 miles, 192 secs.

Janh Fri 27-May-05 17:54:37

Good game, hula, thanks

Hulababy Fri 27-May-05 17:56:15

Didn't realise it changed the order. Wonder if it is harder depending on which countries you get in which order then? Quite possible I think. Especially those really tiny ones - if they come first it would be much harder.

Gwenick Fri 27-May-05 17:58:40

hula - that's a good point - I had several small ones right at the start - if I'd have had France, Germany, Greece, etc first it would have been much easier

Janh Fri 27-May-05 18:01:23

Oh yes, the order does matter, very much! Hula, is this a school test? If so the order should be the same for everybody, shouldn't it, to be fair?

Hulababy Fri 27-May-05 18:02:22

No idea. A friend sent the link to me as a challenge. Only 'cos I beat him with that crison room thing

Hulababy Fri 27-May-05 18:03:32

Just looked at link again - and I think it maybe a school's resource - but not Uk based. There are other games/quizes on there too.

bossykate Fri 27-May-05 19:18:09

82% with an av error of 49 miles.

Whizzz Fri 27-May-05 19:31:49
