How Many Countries Can You Name in 5 Minutes?

I have to admit to being a little addicted to online travel quizzes. Check out’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!

    79! I didn’t read the info about how England, Scotlanc, etc. was not in the game, but all under UK. I think I wasted over 20 seconds on that one :/

    p.s. 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!
