Well, here's one for all those guys that can't put Belgium on the map, here's a game to help you learn it once and for all.

http://www.sheppardsoftware.com/country_europe_G2_drag-drop.swf

Just drag and drop the country from the left to the map on the right. If you were wrong, drag it to the right place and start with the next country.

BTW, similar games for other regions are to be found on that website :

http://www.sheppardsoftware.com/web_games_menu.htm

For instance here's one for the US :

http://www.sheppardsoftware.com/states_experiment_drag-drop_Intermed_State15s_500.swf


This might be handy with all these gatherings you guys are talking about.. Cool

PS : my scores :
    US : 68%, 151 Miles avg. error, 501 sec
    Europe : 93%, 13 Miles, 193 sec

For the US: 96% 18mi (Nebraska's a lot further north than I guessed. It was the 2nd state I got. Mississippi was first. It's hard without the reference of other states.)

I'll have to come back for the rest.

Europe: 84% 151mi. One of those wasn't my fault, but I did poorly on those really small ones that nobody outside of Europe have ever heard of.
