One more...

Here's the EU game!  Slightly less challenging, there are only 27 in 10 minutes!

oh my goodness. Shame on me.

I keep having to close it after only 4 minutes because I'm at work, but so far I've only come up with 14 countries. And that about maxes out my geographical knowledge.

I imagine if I had a map in front of me, though, that I could probably label the countries correctly.

Eventually I'll have 10 uninterrupted minutes to go take that test. And, no, I won't cheat while I'm waiting! I have work to do. Dammit.

BTW, yes, I did pass this one. 2:44 left.

Okay, time just ran out. I missed 8. Of those 8, I have never even heard of 2 of them!

Geography never was my subject.

You forgot:Bulgaria, Cyprus, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Slovenia

I would have kicked butt, but I didn't get Cyprus!!! I even *thought* about Cyprus, but figured it wouldn't be there so like an idiot, I didn't even put in in there. (What was I thinking???) I got totally hung up on the former Yugoslavia mess!

Cyprus and Malta were the tough ones for me to remember. I had about eight minutes left to spend trying to figure out those two.

Of course, when I lived in Brussels they had just added Sweden, Finland and Austria, and not admitted any of the former communist countries yet, but for someone with an actual graduate certificate in EU Legal Practice, I'd still say it's an embarassaing performance on my part.
