But, seriously, a nice, fun concept on here despite the total Seattle failure. Cheers.
i agree it was an old imagine, but when I had to come up with one word, it was tough, so I went the route of that previous paradigm. Besides, I do find the PNW to be rustic.

thanks for the comment, pnwguy. Glad you enjoyed it; I (obviously) did, too.

That was fun but I agree about not thinking of Seattle when trying to find the answer to rustic. Seattle is coffee, grunge, cloudy, but I would have never in a million years said rustic.

Yeah, sorry, no. Portland is way ahead (behind?) Seattle in the rustic department. Portland's pretty damn sudsy these days, too. I think the ratio of residents: brewpubs is like 20:1.

And Amazon, Microsoft, Boeing, Starbucks, Costco, Eddie Bauer, on and on.

As for Portland, only rustic in the sense many there want to live off the the grid. Sudsy, yep.

fully grant you this...but Portland and Seattle both have had a long rustic feel history. As I said, my choices were not necessarily what others would make, but I was limiting myself to one word clues and "rustic" was the best I could come up with that could elicit "Seattle" as a response. I'll admit failure here, since that was the only one that was not solved.

Like your game...in some sense the last unsolved city is reflective of how we understand or misunderstand cities. That alone is worth something. Right? Good job on creating a good appraisal of US cities. I enjoyed it. (And no you didn't fail, as I may have implied...just some honest opinions, nothing wrong with that).

I think that I would have given rustic to Albuquerque.
