It's another map game! Place the countries in their right position ... you might find it more difficult than you think!

Drag and drop the countries of Europe

[requires Shockwave]

(The exact game for US states was linked in by c.i. in an earlier thread.)

I just tried it for a third time and still didnt get it right. First time I missed Monaco, second time Malta, and this time I missed both Malta and San Marino.

True .... Laughing


I should hasten to add that the score I posted was not my first attempt, the results of which are too embarrasing to post in a public forum. Embarrassed

Aahh, I see ... cause I was already being absolutely flabbergasted at that score, Tico! Not many a non-European who'd get 95% right at first try!

86%, avg error 75 miles. (mixing up luxembourg and lichtenstein didn't help.)

oddly enough, i missed more of those little things in western Europe (where I've been) than the countries in eastern Europe that didn't quite exist when I was in school.

Forty of forty-four, 91%--i was only really off with San Whatever in Italy, i think they should have given me a break on Malta, Monaco and Andorra. It said my average error was 44 miles. Hell, on a map that scale, that's a small fraction of an inch--damned You're-a-peein's . . .

I dunno. I've been through Lichtenstein and Andorra.

I s'pose you're right. I knew an Andorran lass who thought it counted. Knew her a couple of times, actually.

If she's representative, Andorrans are an odd bunch.
