Can you point out Sudan on the map? How about the Strait of Hormuz? This website will bring you many entertaining and stimulating map games to improve your geographical knowledge. The quizzes include questions about countries, capitals, flags, regions, bodies of water, mountains, deserts, metropolitan areas and other topics that will test and challenge your brain. For everyone who wants to explore and learn about the world, you've come to the right place!

All countries of the world?

All 193 members of the United Nations (UN) are included in the quizzes. Added to these UN members are Taiwan (Asia), Kosovo (Europe) and Vatican City (Europe). Not-sovereign territories - e.g. Puerto Rico - are included in our quiz about the Caribbean, but excluded in other quizzes. Russia and Turkey are both added to quizzes about Europe and Asia.
