How many UN countries can you name in 10 minutes?

Quzzile fo' shizzle

I got 92, but I also ran out of time.

By the way, it's "bourg", not "burg" for one country that I will not be giving any more hints about.

The spelling in the quiz is annoying. Come on, North Korea and South Korea? Macedonia?

If you asked me to do this after a night of playing Risk, I'd be able to name all of them.

122, but i give myself 124. it's "democratic republic of the congo"and "republic of the congo" and I tried each several times without the "the."

missed some majorly obvious ones, though i think i got all of europe. except cyprus and malta. and missed some islands that i'll never be fluent in.

Yeah, I really thought the same there - seemed pretty arbitrary and brash. Anyway, I need to try again. I'm kind of addicted. There's this sweet atlas flash game where you have to pinpoint locations on a map of the world, I'm going to try and hunt it down to post here, if that's cool.

Anyway, people need to know more about geography. Some shit I hear from folks kinda puts me out.

Yes, that's an awesome game! It gives you your score in the km that you were off by or something.

I got interrupted on this one with a phone call, so I got around 100.
