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.


I've personally learned all of my geography from actual historical content, so I eat shit whenever it comes to half of the african cunts/island ones.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


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

american lol
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.


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.


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


Does anyone have any tips for memorizing islands?


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

66% first try for Africa

I remember memorizing the US states 3 years ago.

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.


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.


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


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


I got a good 80% on my first try, few more and I was back to where I was. The format this website uses for memorisation is really good, wish there was stuff like this for history and other topics.
With regards to Geography education, I was pretty much the same. We weren't taught any countries through school, 'Geography' was more to do with stuff like volcanoes and earthquakes (At least here in the UK), so this was my first time really learning about the countries of the world.

What in tarnation? What an interesting thing to focus on for geography. I heard that some Europeans focus on countries and things like mountain ranges, lakes, etc. Land stuff. I'm sure the education differences are different in states, anyways. I'm glad to have educated myself more than other Americans, at least.


americans are fed the intelligent brit trope since birth, we associate their silly accent with gigabrain geniuses. the reverse for britain, they are fed the dumb american trope, a staple in british comedy. in reality we are as dumb as each other for most things.


I haven't been really dedicated to playing this quiz, recently. I've become more comfortable with United States geography as well as European geography. I've tried North/Central American geography, and it seems pretty easy. Same with South American geography. I wanted to learn a lot more by the end of this month, but I'm not sure how motivated I'll be by then. I have about 14 days, so I guess I have some time. The goal is a "passing" grade on each quiz on hard mode. I'm shooting for the regular normal mode though because of motivation issues.

I've managed to memorize all US 50 states. Probably many people could do it with a blank map in front of them. But its much harder naming them in your head. You always forget some.

The solution for me was to split it into regions, and now it comes naturally.


I've gotten an acceptable score on North America and South America. I'm still okay with Europe, but I am not very good with USA states. I'm pretty bad at the Asia though.

there is an insane amount of indian reservations just littered throughout the us. had no idea it was this nmerous


That’s what happens when you genocide an entire continent’s worth of people.


no, it's what happens when you don't finish the genocide


Most of them are in the most barren depressing wastelands you could possibly imagine. They got driven off their ancestral homes in the east to shit land that wasn't taken and then they've been given benefits so they can live in shitty trailers. Any sacred site they have is likely something created since they were driven off their original land. They didn't even have horses before Europeans brought them to the continent so the image of Indians riding on horses people have is actually a culture that was developed after we started fucking with them and drove them off the good land.


they had horses all throughout the americas before the european settlers arrived. at least you can find cave paintings and little statuettes and woven twig things of horses, dudes on the horses, etc.


Better to die with honor from English Puritans than to be Mestizoized into the bottom of a racial pyramid by decadent debauched papist Conquistadors.
