I've been generally trying to stay out of the heat and gaming like crazy during this excruciatingly hot summer down here in Texas. While I love games of all sorts, I've found myself gravitating towards particular, arguably-superficial elements of some games and want to find others with them.

THIS TIME: Playing on a Map of the U.S.A. (with most-likely one or two other countries mixed in)!

While the map changes dramatically throughout history, I'm looking for a list of the 'complete' continental United States usage (post-1912 and the admittance of Arizona - I love you Alaska & Hawaii, but I'm talking primarily about the 48-state, continental border here).

Thanks!

Only cities, no states in this classic gateway. I'd argue that the familiar map acts as what I like to call 'noob-lube!' Casual/non-gaming observers at least want to see who is 'winning' in their hometown area. Seems to be a quality throughout this list.

Absolutely gorgeous and divided into 4 regions: West, Midwest, South and East. The zen-like setup plays as a long-term memory game of state locations, seals and abbreviations. To say the least, I wish I had it during Geography in middle school.

No states, just cities but don't look the fool - Rapid City is in South Dakota.

Again, just cities but this time six regions: purple, blue, yellow, red, green and brown. (I can't bring myself to describe them as Mid-South & South-East)
