I only got 37.  I couldn't keep my Kims straight and totally tanked on Middle Eastern dictators.

It was the African ones who got me. I have no clue what goes on in the Congo.

African ones got me too.  I guessed 41 of the others correctly. 

41 of 60 would get me a failing grade in 7th grade history class.

47/60. Pretty decent.

Struggled with some of the more obscure asian and african contenders.

43/60

Mostly from listrning to the BBC world Service and stabs at those who don't iften get mentioned or are very hidtorical. Pissed off about hitting the erong Mongul though - that was a "typo"!
