Amy!

Rob, I used to use that game with my nieces and nephews. (The only drawback was that Jeremiah used to LIKE hearing it say "Nooooo....Noooooo" when he'd place a piece wrong. )

Well, I would get 100% right because I had this puzzle that shows/showed me everything....until Esther chewed on Washington state...looks like "Wshn ste" now...

Guess you'll have to play for me too, Rob. Can't play it on my iPad. (I'm so glad I have an excuse so I don't have to show how bad at geography I am HeeHee ).

Well, I got a 44%, but not because I'm dumb as a rock. Ooops I don't have a mouse for my laptop and the game and cursor are too darn sensitive! Ranting (I'm not actually quite that upset. HeeHee ). But if I was to judge myself, I think I may have gotten around a 70% maybe. I seriously suck at geography. greenS

lol

I received 84% with the average of 17 miles off.

I'll have to try it again sometime. I know I can do better than that- and with less time. I was staring at "Kentucky" forever thinking "This is not the correct shape for Kentucky!" I kept holding it above Tennessee thinking, "This is a trick!" Then I read which state it was and realized I was holding North Carolina!

That isn't bad considering that you don't even live in the U.S., Alex! The first time I played it, I got a terrible score because I didn't realize that if you let go of the state, it would plop right there wherever it was. My touch pad on my laptop would only carry the states so far, and then they'd drop. So Hawaii was in California's territory, etc. . . . Once I figured out how to get it to move properly I got a 94% with a 10 mile error.

Oh! Rob, I meant to thank you for posting this, too - I'd lost the link for it a few years back, one of the times my computer crashed.

That's what happened to me Savannah. But I never did figure it out like you did! You must be better coordinated! greenS


Alex, I am impressed! Thumbsup (And a little embarrassed! Ooops HeeHee ).

I don't think I'm more coordinated, Amy. I just discovered that if I held the left-click button down while moving the state with my finger, I could make it go where I wanted it to. (Now if I could just figure out a similar answer for some of the things going on in life. "If I just hold this button, and move these here with my hand, I can put the situations in exactly the order that I want them." )

I had the misfortune of getting Kansas as one of my first states. That's a hard one to place when there are no other states there for reference.

Woot! I got a 98% with a five mile error. It totally depends on what states they start with for me, though. I know where they go, but if they start with a state that's in the middle of nowhere, with no defining edges, I'm sunk. I'm always a few miles off from where they go.

Ha! Rob, I was just writing about that same thing! My score goes down if there isn't some way to get a good bearing of where to place it *exactly*.
