I'm no katze

Katze got up to 100 something. I'm no katze. I could name that many in about 10 minutes.

71


Slowly building up the speed. You have to exhaustively hit areas so that you never repeat and then, more important than anything, no typos. I lose so much time to typos. I want to get over 100.

91


Woohoo! Broke the 100 barrier. I'm not sure how much more I can improve. When my fingers stop typing one name, I'm almost always ready with the next one. But my fingers only move so fast.

106

71, pretty good. I got 69. I had to respell several of them and can't believe some of the ones I forgot.

39, and I taught geography one semester. But I wasted time typing in things it wouldn't take, like variations of the USA and misspellings of Guatemala.

I had the same thing, -e. My 71 was the second round. I had to learn to avoid things that were hard to guess on the spellings. I wasted a lot of time testing variations of UAE and Kirgizstan.

50, but I had to keep the English version in mind, which made it harder for me.

I tried to enter Sudan and the Vatican, but no no success. The program did not accept those.

Hey, Szelsofa, I am sure thinking of all the bizarre English versions is a barrier. I do know the trick on the Vatican; they want Vatican City. I'm not sure what happened on the Sudan one. I would have guessed just "Sudan", too.

Oh, I know... that's what kills you in the end: your fingers just can't go any faster without making lots of typos. And the stupid thing is picky about how you type them in, too. And god forbid you should accidentally end up with a space in front of your typing. I lost at least 30 seconds to that the first time I played. SO ADDICTIVE. MUST GO PLAY AGAIN.

Shame on me, b/c in Hungarian, Vatican City is Vatikánváros, where Vatikán is Vatican and város is ...guess what...city.
pfft.

Got 68 the first time. Then 89. Wasted a lot of time trying to spell Venezuela. Though, oddly, I guessed Kazakhstan right the first time.

Ello said...

damn I can't spell country names for anything!!!!! I should have had much more but I couldn't spell all the stans! Was killing me!

pacatrue said...

112! Woot!

Yeah, the stans are nasty. I still haven't gotten tajik and kyrgyz spelled right during the game, so i just skip them. I have picked up a fondness for countries with short names.

Togo, you are the one for me.
