During my break today I had a few minutes to spare so I snuck into the computer lab to have my hand at Place the State. For those that don't know, or haven't figured out already, Place the State is a geography game where you are given the outline of the state and you need to click and drag it into place on the United States map. In my six years of playing this game the best I have ever done is a score of being 1 mile off. I have never gotten a perfect score. I don't know how many times I have sat and played the game for 20 to 30 minutes and not gotten a perfect score. There is a little wiggle room in getting it right, but if you are off by too much on one of them it will penalize you and perfection is lost.
For my game I played (and won) today I started with Pennsylvania, then was given Nebraska and West Virginia. It was right after I had gotten those two right that I knew I would be in good shape. The middle states are by far the hardest (obviously) because you have no borders to match them up with. After having those two in place I had a frame of reference and it was fairly smooth sailing from there. I was actually pretty nervous that something would go wrong. It seemed almost too easy.
After trying and failing so many times I expected this one to be a little bit harder. Oh well. I will take it!
