i thought it'd be interesting to see how well americans know eu countries and how well europeans know the united states. i don't know if it's difficult at all for anyone but i'm just curious

obviously this is the internet and anyone can just google a map but it'd be cool if you didn't cheat :)

EU countries for americans: http://www.sporcle.com/games/g/europe

united states for europeans: http://www.sporcle.com/games/g/states

non-americans/europeans are free to play as well

my results for europe in spoiler:

Speaking of which, tfw you need to know the province/states in the US, whereas just the country in europe.

I did better on the europe quiz.  Not only that but I looked at the map and knew where they went.  When I was doing the US it was more of just typing down states that I heard of (from monopoly, sports teams etc.)

Agreed.  I would've gotten a similar mark in Europe but like 10/50 in the US.
