I got 60 - but I lost a lot of time trying to figure out why I couldn't get Colombia (spelled it Columbia) and trying to type Scotland and England instead of thinking United Kingdom...

EDIT:  I got 71 the second time through...

Will it recognize country names from the 1980s?  It's been a long time since I took world geography and many, many of the country names have changed since then.

It is the current country names. For example, Yugoslavia is not there.

43 for me...

It is the current country names. For example, Yugoslavia is not there.

Good grief, I spent at least a minute trying to figure out how to spell 'Yugoslavia'. I was also frustrated when it wouldn't take 'Britain' or 'England'.
