Told you I was geographically challenged.

I once memorized all the countries and continents when I was in Mr. Holcomb's 7th grade geography class. I drew and color-coded a map of the world for my final project in his class, in which I made a "A". So at one time, I knew something about geography.

But times change and apparently so do countries. I love the internet, though. It allows me to realize just how much I need to brush up on my geography before I start trying to teach it to my kids, but it does it with really awesomely cool games like this.

It took me 3 tries just to make it to the second round and when I finally made it to the 3rd, I scored a paltry 61,860. How did you do? Leave it in the comments.

I used to love Geography, but like you, I need to do some brushing up. Some place in Korea and Madagascar really messed me up. I only played once (but I'm going to try again later!), but I got to the third round and scored 66,432. :-/ Wild Bill Neill, my high school geography teacher would be appalled. ;)

I tried it again and finished level 5, without enough points to get to 6. How nerve wracking! My fingers are so slow!!!
