How many countries can you name in five minutes?

Office productivity dropped slightly this afternoon as we competed to identify countries in this online game.

Out of 270 total countries, how many can you name in five minutes?

It’s trickier than you may think. You definitely need a good grasp of geography—and especially spelling. You could waste valuable minutes trying to spell the country whose capital is Baku, for example.

For the record, 82 countries seems to be the high score here, so far.

UPDATE: The new high score is a whopping 130!
