    How to guess the map:

    1. Someone posts a map, and you try to guess what the map's supposed to represent
    2. Person who guesses correctly gets to post the next map guessed on, or they can declare open floor, and then the thread is left dormant for several months it's first come first serve to post the next map
    3. The longer time it takes, the more and "better" hints the person who posts should give
    4. Map should be reposted at the top of every page. A default page is 20 posts long

    If you're making a map and need guides on all the island countries in the Caribbean Sea and the Indian and Pacific Oceans, here you go:
    Spoiler :






    Here's the blank maps put in every thread, copy-pasted from last thread:
    Spoiler :



    Old threads also link these three sites, so check them out if you want

    Ancient threads:
    Guess the map
    Guess the Map II: witty sequel titles failed me
    Guess the Map III: The Map Lover's Paradise
    Guess the Map IV: A Thousand Cries for "Hint Please!"
    Guess the Map V: A Map is Worth a Thousand Words
    Guess the Map VI: Retroactive Cartographer
    Guess the Map VII: Bhutan vs. Peru
    Guess the Map VIII: Didn't Color the Island Countries
    Guess the Map IX: The Richese are no match
    Guess the Map X: "Portugal? Going to live it up down ol’ South America, huh, Mikey?"
    Guess the Map 11: New map at least once per year
    Guess the Map 12: Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Hate Mercator

    BTW I, Lohrenswald, would highly reccomend using the first of the three sites above for your custom maps instead of using ms paint or something

    Current map is this by me:

    not too eager to give hints yet

    Is 0 better than non-zero?

    depends on your outlook

    most people I'd guess probably don't really care either way

    you'd probably look silly if you were bragging about living in or coming from a non-zero prefecture. Because it would be an odd thing to care about

    Makes more sense to start the new thread with a map ;).



    Is it about anything biological?

    It's unrelated to the field of biology

    humans are biological creatures (even the japanese)

    Let me be more precise: Is the subject matter of biological origin?
    (is it something about humans, their demographics, plants or animals?)

    Birthplaces or home districts of Prime Ministers? Yamaguchi is awfully green behind Tokyo.

    I kind of figured. Suga, the current PM [:rolleyes:] was born in Akita, the northernmost white prefecture just south of Hokkaido, but his district is Yokohama.

    Anyway, I don't have a map so open floor.

    Grey = no data (some could be my mistake (Czech Rep. for some reason), but some are because the world does not know)
