    I've played this before and did pretty well. I tested it just now and it does not include the world's newest nation, South Sudan.

    It is all in the definitions! A good many of the islands and Antarctic places meet no definition that i have seen before.
    How many did we all get? I only got 40, but I lost more than a minute correcting spelling and puzzling out their chosen spellings for a few places. maybe I will try again.

    Thanks for posting this

    I managed to get 92. I only misspelled a couple, which helped. Kiwi kicked my butt, though.

    only able to type 90. agree that i can probably name more than i can type. and yes, many non-countries on that list. maybe it should be called "how many countries, territories, special administrative regions, and principalities can you name in 5 minutes?"

    got up to 81. typos really bite into the time. and a space in front (left from the space at the end of the previous name) leads to a mistake.

    Doing it a second time, I got to 103. I think my poor typing speed and the fact I keep trying to type things like Afghanistan, United Arab Emirates, Papua New Guinea and Liechtenstein really slows me down. I should stick with short countries like France and Spain :p

    Also, did you know this game counts "Trinidad" and "Tobago" as separate countries? Weird.

    Yeah several that are not on there I think and several that should not be. Got 72 here. Could not get it to recognize Great Britain or England in any form.

    More importantly...it says I could take on 26 5 year olds in a fight.

    You have to use United Kingdom for Great Britain or England.
