Oh, one other thing:

The names of the countries are on the dots along the lines connecting the country maps to the locator map: but you knew that, right?

About the countries. Most are widely recognized internationally.

But not all countries recognize or have relations with Vatican City.

Kosovo has very spotty recognition across the world. Some countries (mostly Western nations) recognize Kosovo. Many countries in Asia, South America and Africa do not.

No member of the UN recognizes Transnistria, but it is a de facto independent nation. It may be some time before its status is resolved.

How the game works:

Each country contains several dots. One is labeled with the name of the capital. The others in the same state are labled with "Not [name of the capital]".

So if it was say, the US state of Nebraska, one dot in Nebraska says "Lincoln" the others all say "Not Lincoln".

Next door in Colorado, there are several dots. One says "Denver", the others all say "Not Denver".

So you are reinforced several times for the name of the capital, but only once for its location...
