    Apparently missed Belarus, Slovakia, Switzerland, Moldova, Monaco. I thought I missed about twice that many. I wonder if the order is random. Obviously it's better to do the ones you know first (I got Belarus first).

    The order is random- so technically if you get a load of countries with coastlines first you should do better.
