====================  Global Race

You need to move between countries using the fewest number of stops.  At higher difficulty you only see the flags or capitals of the destination countries.

For purposes of this game, water connections have been defined as follows:

  • w1 = narrows, channel or strait
  • w2 = sea or large lake  - counts as 2 moves
  • w3 = short ocean distance - counts as 3 moves

    Only the closest few connections are defined for islands and continents

     ====================  Global Challenge

    These trivia questions are created interactively from the data provided in the CIA World Factbook.  There are 2 ways to play - you can select a difficulty level and questions up to that level will be chosen randomly from different categories.  Or you can select a particular category and have all questions come from that category.



    Only a few of the hundreds of fields in the CIA database are suitable for trivia questions.  Descriptions of all the fields can be found in the database documentation..
