Most of the error in placement was because I placed Kansas exactly where Nebraska should have been. For shame.

82%, 21 miles, 498 seconds. I tended to pretty uniformly place states in the middle of the country about 50 miles east of where they belong. I was pleasantly surprised that I dropped Kansas and Nebraska on the right spots. I've also realized I need to clean my mouse.

As a Canadian, I feel no shame about taking the basic test. But why weren't they all coloured red and blue, like I've heard about??

No, thank you.
I prefer to go to bed on a positive note (92% on the Intermediate).

The first few states are crucial. The first time I played I got Kansas early and missed it by miles and miles. I finished with 92% in 400 seconds (or so) with something like a 12 mile margin of error.

The second time I got easy starters, only missed Kansas by a touch, and finished with 98% in 286 sec. w/ a 1 mile margin of error.

If your first state is Colorado or Wyoming (or Kentucky), you're doomed. It's just too hard to get the exact location.

I drew a complete blank on Missouri. I don't know why, exactly. And I put one of the New England states so far out of place that I almost laughed.

I did better than I thought I would, though. Geography was never my strongest subject.
