Oh not all, of course. But a good few, yeah. We've had 80 so far, so we're all under 50% strike rate.
I don't know; that's pretty tough, I think. With no context, you can't even tell if it's an island or not, unless it's a cluster of islands. Since I've learned where all the countries are, it's definitely easier for me to narrow it down a lot more quickly, though.

I can tell ~3/4 times. The indentations on an island—or a coastline of any sort—are usually more ragged and random than a land border. Certainly Sykes-Picot didn't draw them!

Right, that's how I usually get the ones I don't recognize, the direction & distance make that feasible.

But in general, it's a bennie of being an old dude who's always been looking up places, and of course following world events for a lifetime means a lot of maps too :)

Hah, little scamp—didn't even know it had changed name! But thankfully fairly similar to the old one.

@WoodenSaucer that's an example of the distances and directions getting me home, I didn't have a clue what the place looked like :)

I didn't guess it on the first try, but your hint kind of gave it away. Based on the directions, distance, shape of the country, and your hint, I knew what it was on the 2nd try. And there are some similarities to the old name, but it's quite a bit different. :)

Silly me, didn't consider someone who already knew of the name change would be helped :(
Well, there are a few different countries that have had name changes. But after my first guess, and I got the direction and distance, that helped. But I also recognized the shape.

If I wouldn't have known about the name change, I may have guessed Lesotho, too.

I've made a couple of observations about this game.

1) It's not just nations. They also have some territories thrown in there, which threw me off.

2) I'm kind of late to this game, and I figured out you can use the Wayback Machine to load up snapshots and play all of the past ones you missed.

3) Brian is somehow cheating. No way anyone can get as many 1's as he does. :D
