How Many Countries Can You Name in 5 Minutes? Mike Richard November 7, 2008 Sidelines 16 Comments I have to admit to being a little addicted to online travel quizzes. Check out JetPunk.com’s How many countries can you name in 5 minutes? I made it to 71, which seems a bit weak given that I edit a travel site. But I’ll take refuge in the fact that it’s a Friday and my head’s not entirely in “work” mode. How many did you name? Let us know in the comments below! 16 Responses Vinny November 7, 2008 I got 51… but there were some countries i knew but did not know how to spell properly in English. It’s hard when it’s timed!

Here’s a link to the “Free Rice” quiz game, if you get answers correct rice is given to poor people. It started out as a vocabulary site but now has lots of different games.

Reply Christine May 14, 2009 131… my hand hurts Reply Dan March 23, 2010 I am the author of that quiz.

For the person who got 131, that’s really impressive. The most I’ve ever managed is about 100, and I wrote the quiz. My friend Sam was able to get all 195 with some practice – but he types about 100 words a minute. He also got all 195 country capitals! Reply Max October 2, 2012 I got 111.
