    You can choose the level of difficulty. This is something you might want to share with your kids.

    I scored a 95. I honestly mostly puzzled them out by shape and approximate idea of their location.

    Beginner's level was easy. Then I tried I tried intermediate and after placing a few states, they became invisible and I couldn't go by the states I had placed anymore.

    Nothing like a geography quiz to make one feel like a total moron.

    I score 90. I'd say the only reason I got most of the east coat stuff is guessing by the outline shapes.

    No way could I complete it on expert.

    Beginners was a cake-walk for 100 pts. I should have started from the west coast on the intermediate level, so I could get into the rectangular states.

    100 on beginner.

    139 on expert.

    Don't remember what I got on intermediate haha expert took too much out of me.

    P.S. - The midwest states are freakin hard on intermediate and expert...

    Good find though!

    Edit: Re-did intermediate, got a 96.

    135 on expert - first try. Piece of cake. I need to pay better attention to the selections.

    Unless you're looking at a map, I'd like to know how anyone could place Rhode Island on a blank map the first time. :grumpy:

    Just drop it west of Cape Cod. Bingo.

    It's actually pretty easy... Although that might be because I live in PA, and have visited Rhode Island a few times to go whale watching, not to mention NJ, Mass, and Conneticut are right there. If you know where all of the states around it are, then it's really not that hard...

    110 on expert, first try. Rhode Island was easy (It's 15 minutes away from me on I-95!). I had a hell of a time getting Colorado, South Dakota, Iowa, and the like exactly in the right place!
