I've Made it Onto the Lithuanian Olympics Team!

The Geography Olympics team, that is. I clicked over to the Geography Challenge page and saw that I could choose a country to compete for. Since Sierra Leone wasn't on the list for some reason, I decided to help out my fellow Sons and Daughters of Lietuva.

To play, you have to identify 10 countries within 200 seconds. You can only play 3 times a day, but in my 3 times at bat I raised the average score for the Lithuanian team from 54.4% correct to 62%, vaulting the spunky little nation ahead 27 places in the rankings. I'll be back tomorrow to do my bit for Lithuanian pride. I got 9 out of 10 each time, but clearly I need to work on those other damn former Soviet republics. Can YOU find Tadjikistan on a blank map?



Last night June and I were helping Alex get ready for a quiz identifying the US states on a blank map. He used this online drill and learned most of them in short order. Still gets Colorado and Utah mixed up though.

What an interesting game! I helped bump up Estonia (land of my wife's forebears) a bit.

Now if I could just learn the difference between Mauritania and the Seychelles...

That's a great game! I'm going to try tomorrow! I boosted Angola's score a little. I struggle with Africa's little countries though. This would be a great game for a geography class!
