I tend to use KGeography myself. There is something oddly satisfying about knowing African nations. You can watch an old episode of Carmen San Diego and feel like a God.

 No.63306

I've personally learned all of my geography from actual historical content, so I eat shit whenever it comes to half of the african cunts/island ones.

Interesting hobby, I think I will adopt it. One day I was drawing maps, copying the lines very well. I like the idea of having the planet in my mind. After drawing southeast Asia the next day I drew a fantasy continent and it looked so cool. Wish I still had it, I possibly have thrown out the notebook it was in. I just remembered there was a really cool placename for worldbuilding in my dream last night, I wanted to remember it but I forgot. It was probably one of the coolest combination of syllables possible.

Thing I'll draw a map of my city. I'll also choose an unrelated city to draw so I can post it without doxxing myself.

Jetpunk is pretty good. An almost inexhaustable supply of different quizzes. I've memorized all countries and their capitals, some European countries' states/provinces and a load more. Brute force memorisation where you just keep doing the quiz over and over again works and is satisfying, but it's pretty tiring in a short space of time.

Just got a 39 percent at about 4 minutes 30 seconds for Europe. American education at work. 😎

europeans would probably do equally bad for american states.

I mean I'm american and pretty shit at the states. It's easy on the west coast where they're all big and geometric but the east coast his a million little states all bunched into each other. Like all those micro nations in europe.

 No.63397

>>63393
there's history in europe where you can figure out some stuff with common sense, like hungary bordering austria, czechia bordering slovakia, poland and lithuania etc

kind of cheating how it gives you the name of it when you get it wrong
i would have scored extremely worse without that

Reading an encyclopedia on all the nations starting with afganistan.

 No.63460

I'm approaching 80% for European countries. I hate Montenegro, Serbia, and Moldova right now. Moldova is an easy one, too. Next, I'll do the middle east and The United States.

 No.63474

I used to do these regularly a few years ago, got up to 100% on the 220+ territories one. Thanks for reminding me about it, I'll try getting back into it to see how much I've remembered

 No.63480

Does anyone have any tips for memorizing islands?

 No.63536

Is there something like this only with the constellations, so that way I can memorize the nighttime constellations?

Misclicked Bhutan but I knew them all.

I got 100% for Europe too, what too much paradox games does to a wizzie.

Hardmode USA, no borders and just a blank map. It's been a while since I've done the USA and I'm surprised I remember them all.

Did okay, the interior of the country and the little New England States fucked me though. Stupidly got Alabama and Mississippi mixed up.

This is from one or two years ago.

 No.63874

In relevance to geography, my education was pretty much zero. No learning geography for the United States, Europe, Asia, or Africa. The only geography lessons I got were of my own state and the seven continents.

>>63474

How much did you remember? I want to know if I'll remember this a few years from now.

 No.63882

I had a hard time with West Africa until I saw a colonial map and saw the French got the leftover space
