28/31, not bad, England had more people than I thought.

That was a fantastic game! I learned about several countries that had a much larger population than I imagined.

Is this glitchy or what?

I start a new game, it has these four in the upper left.

Denmark

Ghana

Uruguay

Canada

I click on Ghana and it changes to the following.

Poland (shown as the “winner”)

Uruguay

Argentina

Croatia

It does this repeatedly.

I had that same problem; after a few tries it settled down.

Hardest question was Switzerland vs Denmark!

Fun quiz! I got 29, just missed Poland/Senegal and Australia/Tunisia.

I got 31! I don't know the populations of the smaller countries, but didn't get many pairings of small countries and didn't have to guess too much.

Yeah, it has a random starting state. Wish it just started with the real groups

29! Apparently Australia has more people than Ecuador, and Canada more than Cameroon.

28/31. I put Senegal instead of Morocco, France instead of Germany, Japan instead of Mexico. In my defense Japan was more populous than Mexico until a few years ago.

Iran>France

Ghana>Australia

Argentina>Cameroon (I was so stuck on this one, especially after Ghana got me)

Morocco>Croatia

Were the ones that got me. Very fun game though
