oh no

Having lived in 14 states I would have thought I would have done better.

82% 42mi 420 sec. Would do 100% on second try

Second try
90% 30 sec 365 mi

Guess I need to go back to school

Say, Bill, AKA Silvertwinky, you started this game, but you didn't share your state stats! I kept dropping mine along the way and not placing them exactly in the borders. I attibute that to shaky hands, dim eyes, and old age. How did you do?

70%, 141 miles error, 336 secs (bad, but better than expected)

Guess it's time to get on the road and check it out in person!

Dumb me. I started with Hawaii and didn't realize you had to position it exactly. I just tried to drop it in the outlined box. Then I got confused as to what was going on. Had to do it again and lost time.

Second time: 96% 3 miles 275 seconds

Even if you start out with a border state you can still get caught placing an interior state. I was close with a mouse slip on Nevada and had to re-move it.

I can't remember what it was the first time I tried it. I generally get about 90% or better when I try it. Have gotten 100% 2-3 times but the way it's designed if you get stuck placing an inside state first, you can just forget about doing real well! Itís very difficult to figure out exactly where they go without the border lines. Nice pass time when surfing turns into boredom!

Just tried it again and my stats are.... 92% 8 Mi. 237 secs. Got caught with some of the inside states first.

Well there went my night!!! A hour and a half later and I still left some of the other games for later. The vocabulary games were really fun. Thanks for the link. Jamie

Loved this. I should have done it during a break because interuptions by phone calls made me take a little longer than I should have.
98% 1mile and 525 seconds.
