Season 108 - Tie-break !!!

Tie-break question - Season 108:

United Nations member states beginning with a vowel

The United Nations currently has 193 memberstates. Name the memberstates beginning with a vowel.

Name as many of the memberstates of the United Nations starting with a vowel as possible. Naming countries that does not begin with a vowel or are (no longer) members of the UN will deduct a point.

You can answer several times until 7 o’clock CET tomorrow (26 October). You answer by sending a chat message to the page. There will be no continuous update of who has the most correct answers, nor will the quizmaster answer whether or not an answer is correct or incorrect when it has been submitted. Players are allowed to delete submitted answers, if they realize an answer given might be incorrect. 

If two or more players finish with the same number of tie-break points, the player who has given the most correct answers (but also more incorrect answers) is the winner. If the players are still tied they will get a new question, where they will be asked for one answer to a question they will not know the exact answer to. The player who comes closest to the correct answer will then be declared the winner.

Everybody can play along of course, but it will not give anybody additional points - the-tie break is only meant to sort out the ranking of the top players.


Player one names the following member states:

A, B, C and D and X, Y and Z

Player two names the following member states:

A, B, and C and X

A, B, C and D are correct answers

X, Y and Z are wrong answers


Player one has a score of 1 (4 correct minus 3 incorrect)


Player two has a score of 2 (3 correct minus 1 incorrect)

Thus Player two wins with a score of 2 even if player one had more correct answers overall.
