I think you need to correct the question in #4
A few were easy, but I did not get a few.
It was fun anyway.

If I were more of a geography buff, this would have been a lot more fun, but alas, I am not!
However, its lack of interesting-ness (yes, that's a real word, heh heh) is just my own personal problem.

A nice teaser to open the day

Feb 15, 2006

A very simple one. I think it would have been more interesting if the clues in Part B were not in the same order as the countries (after unscrambling) in Part A!
shawneeo*us*
Feb 15, 2006

You really made it hard by picking all those two-word countries! Naughty, naughty! Did you mean for them to correspond by number? I thought they were gonna be mkxed up, the clues. But, even though the clues matched the anagram, I still didn't get two of them, ha!!!!!

I only got two. But it's a really good brain teaser. No offense to all of the other people who put up teasers, but I think you make the best ones, Sarge!

Bravo, Sarge ... Very educational!!! It's a FAVE, for sure!

Feb 15, 2006

Great one again Sarge. I ca't believe I got stumped by United Kingdom, but of course I guess I don't think of it as that and No 2 left me cold. I got the hard two word ones tho. Great informational treaser.
besamishuevos*np*

got all but 2.....finally, a teaser that is not lame.....
Vigo95Aus*
Feb 15, 2006

it through me a little that UK wasn't separated into two . i guess the point was to make it harder . i was just trying to figure what country had such a long name !

Oh boy, you have Romania there too! But even if my country would be included, this would still be awesome work! I wish I would have the time to comment on more of your teasers as the progress you are making is remarkable. I can only admire the fact that you are improving this site with some high quality, interesting, and fun teasers, that I look up to! Keep up the great job!

United Kingdom, huh?? I even looked to see if England was one of the words. Jokes on me! Great one!

wow, that really was a good one, I'd stopped checking in because they were getting so ridiculous.. Nice job, some easy, a few challenging ones, one that stumped a bunch of us.. nice...

I really enjoyed this one! I hate to say it, but I did not get 2 of them,#2 & #5.
FulanitoGM*sv*

Good teaser.

A couple of things: I agree with RRAMMOHAN that the clues in Part 2 should have been mixed up, so that we could match them up like it said in the instructions. That would have given it an added layer of fun and made it perfect! As it is now, if you can't figure one out, you have but to look at its corresponding clue to get the right answer.

Second, I personally liked the fact that the two-word countries weren't separated. Made it that much more challenging. Good job!

(Man, once I get started, I just don't shut up, do I? )

This goes to my favorites.

Thanks! I'm glad you liked it and for your suggestion. I'll try to mix it up next time.
GebbieRoseAus*
May 26, 2006

including two-word countries made it more challenging & fun. am sending this to a romanian friend... sans the "dracula" clue lol
kutgw!
Smudgeza*
Feb 15, 2007

Being a wordy person myself, these were extraordinarily easy to unscramble.

And the fact that the Part 1 and Part 2 answers were in the same order was very disappointing, and ruined a teaser with great potential.
lmurray*cn*
Feb 15, 2007

FAR TOO EASY! FOR ANYONE UNABLE TO UNSCRAMBLE THE WORDS, THE INFORMATION IN PART B GIVES THE ANSWER TO PART A.

WHEN DID WE STUDY WORLD GEOGRAPHY, 4th & 7th GRADES?

ELIMINATE PART B AND USE LESSER KNOW COUNTRIES.

KEEP TRYING.
katjojoAus*
Feb 15, 2007

I thought this was just hard enough to be fun. Good Job!!

Feb 15, 2007

I don't believe United Kingdom is a country. England is a country, Scotland is a country, and Wales is thrown in for good luck or something. Liked the rest of the puzzle, though.
AbsurdHero*us*
Feb 15, 2007

#6 is a kind of a trick question. South Africa has THREE capitals, and Cape Town would have been a lot more recognizable.
jacstop*
Feb 15, 2007

Very Fun braingle.
btw LMurray needs a life because right now he's working on perpetuating his delusions of grandeur. The assumption that you are hyper intelligent because of your nationality is "played out" son. Braingles take many shapes and sizes...
scallioAus*
Feb 15, 2007

I liked the countries you selected. I prefer more commonly known countries. Teasers utilizing obscure topics, including obscure countries, just aren't fun.

I didn't even notice the clues at bottom matched the countries at top in exact order! The clues could have been a bit tougher, but all in all a very fine teaser.

This teaser ranks a 10 on my scale of fun!
KharmakayeA
Feb 15, 2007

I do enjoy unscambling. And with geography being a bit of a forte, this was even better.

However, I do beleive that (as I read above in previous comments), that the answers in Part 2 should have mixed up. I could have been more difficult. The two that I could not unscramble, I was easily able to discern from the clues.

But all in all, a fun one!
Pizzazz2uAus*
Feb 15, 2007

The teaser was easy, but still fun! But, I must agree with some of the other comments! The countries and the clues?!?! You need to mix up the options, just a little bit! And the UK??!
Trishgal*us*

I really enjoyed it, and it was Just right,I mean I did not get #5 THX

I liked this one last year and liked it again today. (odd.....still didn't figure out United Kingdom ) Obviously my brain isn't growing new cells! Nor is my memory

Didn't realize the facts were in order...

Good teaser, though...

Well, I didn't get it but I'm not very good with trivia...
QrystalAca*
Feb 23, 2007

Ow, my brain hurts. I couldn't unscramble UK or South Africa, though I tried for awhile. I also didn't notice the clues matched the order of the scrambles. Oops!
MelkorDCLXVI*us*

I got all except UK
nice teaser
P.S. doesn't South Africa have 3 capitals? (Pretoria, Bloemfontein, Cape Town)
violetcat66
Feb 16, 2010

Fun...but like Trev 71 said..UK is NOT a country
doeheadAus*
Feb 16, 2010

Nice and easy one today.
sunnybonghits*
Feb 16, 2010

Wow - thanks for this. It made me realize what an idiot I am. Btw, I think it's fairly common to refer to the UK as a country.
auntiesisAus*
Feb 16, 2010

Easy but lots of fun.
craniacAus*
Feb 17, 2010

Ditto what FUTANITOGM said ... Isn't it amazing how different one's abilities are on any given day? Usually I'm the one stumped by easy teasers, but today all these other people are saying this teaser was hard, and I found it about as simple and easy as they get. No matter ... I enjoyed it very much and echo the calls for more of the same kind.
Babe*
Feb 16, 2013

Just my opinion, but I would have preferred the two word countries to be separated in the scambled words. I just kept thinking it was a country with a long name I was not knowlegable about. Otherwise a great teaser. Enjoyed trying.
gaylewolfAus*
Feb 16, 2013

This was a good one! Thanks for posting!
cutebugAus*
Feb 16, 2013

Knowing what countries part 2 belonged to,made it quite easy to unscramble part 1
HABS2933Aca*
Feb 16, 2013

I agree with Cutebug for the ones that the answer didn't jump right out, just had to solve the clue to get it right away. The statement that Pretoria is the capital of South Africa is a bit inaccurate. South Africa has 3 different capitals: Pretoria is the Executive Capital; Cape Town is the Legislative Capital and Bloemfontein is the Judicial Capital.

For those of you confused by the UK:

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is a sovereign state formed over the years by the successive unions of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. It is a political entity recognised by the UN, EU, IOC and a host of other acronyms. The adjective for someone from the UK is British. Administration is by the British government, though Scotland, Wales and NI also have their own assemblies with some legislative powers. England does not have a separate government.

'England' and 'English' are NOT interchangeable with 'UK' and 'British'; however, 'Great Britain' is an acceptable abbreviation (even though it technically excludes Northern Ireland).

The UK is a country. England, Wales and Scotland are countries - but as constituents of the UK, and not in the political sense.
