Europe: 94% 12 miles 220 seconds = Woo-Hoo!

I`ll admit: I got REALLY easy countries first! :-) And those teeny-tiny ones last. A couple of surprises though, look out! (I knew them easily from my WW2 studies though...)

Enjoy!

The Game I found came from here:
Jimspages Which is sort of like IAB but with much less content...

I looked around a bit:
Sheppard Software!
Free online educational games for kids! I mean little ones too, some are for pre-schoolers even :-)
Click "World Geography Games" to get to the...

Canada Map!

European Map! With 9! levels of difficulty! Yikes!

Off I go to suggest it as a new post...

@cobrakiller: Canada`s map would be easy! The 3 territories: their shapes give them away. Same for Ont and Que. BC is on one coast (easy) NS, NB and PEI are on teh other (easy!) Can`t miss Newfoundland... only Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba remain! And Manitoba looks like this:



@HolyGod: Thanks! If I find something fun? I drag it to IAB!
You are 100% correct: naming the provinces in Germany, England or even Mexico would be inpossible! (for me!)

A lot of high scores! IAB = smart!
And low ones for non-US residents is perfectly acceptable! lolz!

I got 90% and 16 mile as my average error.
That`s not bad, considering I was using a touch screen key pad that I`m notoriously bad at letting go of :>

But that is the thing cobrakiller, you pretty much always get a middle state and even if you know where it goes you`re usually off by enough because this thing is so tight. Try to get 100% it is very hard. I was laid off a few years back and decided to learn my states for some reason. I played a game like this many times this one week. Even with that in my head it was still really hard to get 100% on this one. I kept having to restart it. Out of your benefit of doubt though I did delete my original post. I was being a bit of a dick.

markust, I will give him the benefit of the doubt on this one. I got ninety-something percent with a 9mile off my first try. This is because I had kansas as my first state. So, if I had an easier state first, I believe I could have gotten 100%.

98%, 2miles, 357seconds ... only because one of the first ones it gave me was Nebraska with nothing else around it ... and I was still only a centimeter off. >:(

"I`ve done this one before and it sometimes comes down to the randomness of the draw."

I absolutely agree with you.

If I get Kentucky first I may be off by a few miles. However, if I get it after Ohio I`d be dead on.

Simple solution for everyone`s geography woes, just show all the nation`s Hetalia avatars and I guarantee at least the ladyfolk will never forget where they are. ;-)

I got 97% in 207 seconds with a 4 mile margin of error, not bad. I`ve never had any problems with world geography, not just the US or North America.

88% 16 mi. 429 (had customers on the lot)

I would also like to dispute that 16 mi. and 88%. It should be 100% and zero miles. I strongly suspect the person who made the map had a problem with depth perception.

Cool post 5Cats. Do a country one too.

I got 94% in 194 sec with a 9 mile average error.

Although I live here. Plus I got lucky with the ones they gave me first.

Kudos to you Europeans. I would do well with countries, but if you started asking me for states or provinces in foreign countries I`d be f.ucked.

5cats, I thought about it, and it could be pretty easy for some to f*ck up alberta and saskatchewan if they are unfamiliar with canada. I was lucky enough to grow up just across the detroit river from windsor, ontario, so I have a little bit of an edge.

@panth753: That is exceptional! You too @mntlmstrbtr.
@HalfPintRoo & @ILikeLogic: lolz! Oops!

@cobrakiller: I think @Patchouly is pulling you-all`s leg. Yes, Canada`s 10 Provinces and 3 Territories are super-easy to place on a map... if you happen to know that Canada even exists!

Europe would be super-easy too! Except for all those tiny places in the former Yugoslavia, and some mapping weirdness from the former USSR...

I know where Liechtenstein, Monaco, Aandora & Luxemburg are! Moldova? Not so much...

I will never even think about US citizens having poor geography knowledge again, promised. SHAME ON ME!

Luxemburg is located between Belgium. Germany and France.
It has it`s own language, Luxemburgish, and about 500.000 habitants.

94% with 6 miles. This game tests your mouse skills more than it tests your geographical knowledge.

82%, 40 miles, cos 1) I`m a Brit 2) The stupid thing gave me all the anonymous ones in the middle at the beginning. Bastard. You try and locate Switzerland on a blank map of Europe - same fricking problem.

So I did it again, and... damnit, I only got down to 36 miles.

86% 25 Miles 285 seconds! Woo-hoo!
Once you get some of those mid-western states in place, it gets easier.
@LillianDulci: I know! Wyoming I missed by a mile, but I got Kansas perfectly! (It was the very last state, lolz!)
@markust: I agree, it`s easier or harder depending on what order you get.

I missed Hawaii by 3,575 miles... oops! (j/k!)
