I suck at Eastern European Geography. The ones I did get were all because of matching shapes. And Malta? Sure, I know it's a small island near Italy, but which one?

I got all the major pieces right - it was the tiny little countries buried in the middle of others, or the little islands, that threw me off.

%73. Trying to find the little dots where Monaco, Andorra, and Vatican City are supposed to go is a bitch even if you know their relative positions.

64%, 316 miles off. I usually get my bearings from the big countries (like Germany) and then start on the others. The small places like Monaco and San Marino were hard.

avg error of 91 miles

San Marino and Malta were the ones that I didn't know at all, so they killed me. The landlocked countries like Belarus and Slovakia were difficult too.

On my second try I got 95% with an avg error of 11 miles (I was lucky that Slovakia was one of the last countries to show up).
