Place the state!

I'm normally really bad at these games, but I got 80% this time and I didn't cheat.
Let's see who's a genius when it comes to the US of A..

I have played that game before, and I didn't do too well on it, I am kinda directionally challenged.

I got 96 %, but it should have been higher. I was just off by a cm on Montana and it marked me wrong.

I knew where they all were but if your off by an tiny bit they mark it wrong

I got 96% with a 5 mile error rate. I was REALLY good at geography in school. It gave me Tennessee first and I mislocated it by about 120 miles, then made up the error rate as I got the rest of them.

Fun game!!

Just don't count those ones as wrong.

I just got 88% this time around. I think I'm good enough to become an honourary American.

They ought to give you some slack with placing the states all by themselves in the middle of the country! I mean come on! I would have done better if I could have picked the states in the order I wanted. I got 86% the first time and 88% the second. Mainly because the second time I had more midwestern states right off.

Does anyone else find looking at a map of the US without the lines kinda odd?

Well it is,, since my job is mostly geographic..

I got 78% and I'm thrilled! I never had USA geography, thanks to a really bad substitute teacher in the 4th grade (and some really bad kids who made class a joke ) and so I bought myself one of those state puzzles (the wooden ones? For little kids? ) and I'm learning ! (I'm also really, really bad at geography... )

Got 90% - mainly because I got careless with Missouri.

That was fun! I got 88% with a 22 mile average error.

I didn't get that score, but same thing happened with me. Plus I'm using the mousepad on my laptop so I "dropped" the state a couple of times and it marked me wrong on that.

so my result was 84%
post #15 of 28
I kept dropping the states, so only ended up with 58%, but I probably dropped about 15 that it didn't give me credit for.

82% average error 31 miles, and I know diddley about the East coast

Slowly getting better at this--just got 92%.

If we aren't counting the ones that were barely off and got counted wrong (like Alaska, which I did too fast and didn't line up perfectly) I missed 1- Iowa, which I put somewhere halfway into Nebraska. If we count the near-misses, I got a 90% with a 13 mi avg error.

I think it depends a lot on what you get first, since Texas, Florida, and Maine would be really easy if you get them first but Wyoming, Tennesse, and South Dakota are much harder to place perfectly without any other states nearby.

The state capitols one is even harder, since it's just as picky about how close you are but they're cities. I got Columbus wrong and I live here!

I got 76%, but I'm from Canada. Lost a few points as I wasn't precise about the line up (irritating!!). I laughed when I read that Zissou's mom did that with Alaska! Double irritation!
I admit I had a few mess-ups with my mid-western states and also the east coast line-up. I seem to remember this being my trouble 20 years ago at school.
Fun game!

Well I got 58% first time I played it - and I think that's OK as I'm an Aussie and never studied American geography at school - which was a long time ago folks.
post #23 of 28
I got an 86% with a 34 mile error. Not too bad. Glad it didn't ask me to name them!
post #24 of 28
I got an 88% with the Average Error of 27 miles all in 392 seconds.
Notbad. Im happy with that.
post #25 of 28
I hate the middle of the country! I always seem to get a middle state to start with. The score really depends on what your first few states are.
post #26 of 28
I got a 76 percent on my first try!!
post #27 of 28
Okay, I got 78% - I didn't realize that I had to be exact - I was happy that I knew what part of the country they were in - but really, off by 40 miles?
It was fun!
post #28 of 28
I got 84% but it should give you some margin of error. Its hard to say exactly where Tennessee goes when there is not other state on there yet!
