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.

98% accuracy w'in 3 miles. I missed Nebraska by about 50 miles bc it gave it to me without any other midwestern states yet on the map.

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.
