The Swiss Canton challenge

All you have to do is drag and drop the 26 cantons into their correct places on the map of Switzerland. You’re helped a little bit by the two-letter code for each canton appearing as you move the mouse over its outline – for example, BS is Basel Stadt and VD is Vaud

Re: The Swiss Canton challenge

Spent a bit of time on the site: GeoPuzzles, did the Countries of Europe and the US States puzzles. Slow, but did both completely without peeking into an atlas

Re: The Swiss Canton challenge

Na ja ... 880 sekunden. I never realised that so many cantons were smashed to smithereens. I knew Solothun was, but there are so many more!

Thanks, jrspet, that was educational!

Re: The Swiss Canton challenge

Over 800 seconds, not knowing it was a timed thing. And I only did it by matching shapes of borders, hahaha. Jrspet, thanks for improving my Geog by a wee bit.

And what is that left behind tiny white area in the east? Liechtenstein?

Yes, Liechtenstein. I spent a while trying to squeeze Jura into it.
