LOL I did the same thing, burgerflipper! Messed up my score a bit! I got 88% as it was, but am going to try again and remember to keep my index finger on the clicker!

I got only 90% ave error 19 miles 383 seconds... I think I did it too quickly so sometimes my mouse kept dropping it a few miles away

90% correct 19 miles- the first 4 they gave me were in the middle of the map

96%, 3 miles, 201 seconds...i'm at work though so i wasn't going for speed...that was my 1st time too. i'm sure it's easy to get 100% if you try 2 or 3 times...

it also depends on your luck of the draw. i just got kansas as my 1st state...that's a tough one when you don't have any others yet to go by...

I was waiting for someone to make that observation. Clearly, states that are on the periphery in the beginning make it an easier challenge. If you are served up Missouri, Iowa, Kansas or Nebraska at the beginning, you are probably going to miss by a substantial margin.

I agree with this. The first ones I "drew" were the small ones from the NE and while I knew their general location, could not absolutely place them precisely within the zero mile criteria. Not making excuses, I hope...!

96% and 199 secs 8 miles off, and its hard when Colorado is the first state given to you, and Nebraska was last, as the best always is!
