Connecting two words.

This is either a suggestion or question, depending if there is an option already (have not found it yet)

I have difficulties telling the countries Eritrea und Djibouti from apart. Sometimes I mix their locations up (I am learning all countries in the world). So it could happen that I guess one of them right. Good - it will be asked again in a long time. Let's say some days later I will answer the other wrong. It will be set back to daily reviews. Some weeks later I am asked the first again - I am correct, the next review is even longer. I do know both of them equally bad, but just by chance one of them is getting far and far away.

I think it would be good to have an option to "connect" two or more cards. If you do one of them wrong BOTH (or all of them if you connect more than 2 cards) will be considered wrong, even if not all of them had been due on that particular day. If you do one of them right you might have the option to consider both of them right or only the one you have particularly answered correct.

This would help learning vocabulary of similar looking words much easier.

    This has been mentioned before, but the issue is that the possibility of
    having "networks" of cards would both be difficult to implement and
    difficult to use as a user (what should I link this card to). Linking cards
    would wind up taking a significant amount of time on the user's part, and
    then issues could come up like having no cards that could be shown because
    of links, or huge numbers of cards having to reset when you failed a card.

    If you have such an issue, the best thing you can do is reset both of the
    cards, sit down for a minute and figure out how to remember them (make a
    mnemonic, hopefully), and then start again from there.
