    It sucks when these things give you something like Kansas and you've got an empty map. My error was around 40 miles on that one, I think that's prettty close when there's no landmarks or other states near to go by.

    So--Do I love America because I'm good at geography?

  3. 46 of 51, score 90.19, avg error 25, time 287

    have to send this one to my friends.
  4. 84.31 average, error 28. But I think I got the really hard ones to place first.... no coastlines.

    If they really wanted to make it difficult, they would clear the map each time.

    I knew where all the states went, I just misplaced some of the early ones that were in the middle of the country (like Colorado. I'm a Colorado native. I know where Colorado is. I just didn't get it close enough to the proper location.). And I screwed up Alaska. Didn't get it close enough to where it wanted it. Sometimes, it will jump a long ways to be positioned correctly. Other times, you have to be precise. All in all, an enjoyable game.

    There were two that I really screwed up. DC and Delaware. Those two, I did misplace by quite a bit.

    It _is_ fun, though I think that the sequence of states is random. If it starts out with coastal states, you're in; if it starts out Colorado, Kentucky, South Dakota, you're toast :D

    Cool game. Not sure if it proves you're American or not...I could do just as well on a map of Africa or Western Europe (forget Eastern Europe, too many little countries!), or the Far East. Would that prove I'm a "good African" or "good european" (perish the thought)?
  13. Ok, I did it, knew I wouldn't do good, but did better then I thought. The north east whipped my butt.

    Scored 78.58

  14. Interesting that Strangerous has yet to dazzle us with his score.

    Come on fella'--you posted it, 'fess up, how'd ya' do?

    86.27%, average error 22 miles, 317 seconds, but I have to say, it's a little rough when you're trying to place Iowa as your first state. I know were it is, I lived there, but I was off just enoug toget it wrong, rat bas... er I mean, some people.
