    I got 44 percent with an average error of 2 miles. This one is tougher than placing the states.

    As though I didn't have enough things to spend my life on. I'll be doing this for the next hour if anyone needs me.

    Oh, no.

    Also, if anyone really is into this geography stuff, there's a computer program called National Inspirer where you travel around the U.S. collecting various natural resources.

    And since it's educational software, it'll cost only a few hundred dollars.

    64 percent, with an average error of 4 miles.

    Nailed the ones I guessed on; missed the ones I knew.

    44 percent, 2 seconds, 386 seconds. This despite putting Salem in Pennsylvania by accident.

    64 percent (32 correct), 452 seconds and one mile.
    I also didn't know that Augusta was Maine's. I thought Bangor was the capital of Maine.

    Can't get into this game like I could the states. Didn't like being called wrong for missing a city by eight miles.

    The key is, of course, cheating. If you don't know, just drop it in the middle of the state.
    Of course that doesn't work for Kansas, but it does work for Mizzou.
    On the small states, just get the star to cover as much of the state as possible, and you'll be good.

    34%, 2 mile avg. Screwed up by putting Connecticut in Virginia accidentally and placing Juneau 400 miles away. I got 15 perfect, though 10 or 11 of those I pulled out of my ass. Fun little game.
