    Not very well. I remember in 5th grade we had a blank map and had to name them, it was a full test score. I didn't study for it, because I didn't care. I'll see what I can get on this.

    Holy crap there is no lines! I was setting them right beside it and it was like NO YOU ARE WRONG YOU ARE STUPID PLEASE MOVE IT HERE BEFORE THE LAVA LEAKS OUT OF THE EARTH AND KILLS BABIES.


    Then I dropped Hawaii on Kansas and I think I angered the game. That Tide commercial was not cool at all either.

    Thanks. I got a map fetish. :supergrin:

    BTW, put Wyoming and DC slightly off. Was kind of hard to get them exactly right without any neighboring states.

    Me too, I have always loved maps, I think thats why I enjoyed the game so much. Thats when I messed up also was at the start with a few states that had none around them yet.

    Neat test! My average error was 40 miles, and I'll take that and call it a win. The starting was the hardest part -- especially with some of the midwestern states that it's always tough for me to remember without their neighbors/lines to place 'em.

    Got messed up on the mid western states early. I'd drop it just a fraction out of place and get hit with a no go.

    Awesome little game.

    I admit to being a bit of a map geek and recently started reading about the history of state lines.

    My first piece was Nebraska. It was tough to get that one dead on with a blank map.
