Strategy seems to be skip to get all you know and then go back to ones you aren't sure of given you've narrowed down the possibilities. Going in order seems not to be the way to go.

I got Spanish Fork, one of the most-missed here, simply because I ran out of ones I knew and started typing "Utah" into every field because it was the shortest state left and thus the easiest to type over and over. This quiz was tougher than I thought it would be. Missed Nantucket I guess because I spelled Mass. wrong...

This is a very good quiz. However, may i have a suggestion for the quizmaster (aand I suspect that many non-Americans will agree with me)? I appreciate that this pages are probably run by Americans and that many of the users will be American, but on the other hand, they are open to everybody and thus are placed into international, not American context. For many of your users, the word "state" when used on its own, does NOT mean US state. Of course, we understand what you mean, but it would be nice and respectful to state in the instructions that you mean member states of the USA.

So many non-US quiz takers complain about the US-centric questions not realizing this is really a US-based site. However your suggestion makes complete sense. I agree, that if states are mentioned, it would make sense to specify if it is in the United States.

I wonder what the stats on some of these would be if you couldn't use process of elimination. I can pretty much guarantee 14% of people haven't heard of Spanish Fork, Utah.
+1

Jul 24, 2017
I dunno. That would mean that of 10 people, 1.4 would've heard about it. For me, I'd say that about 4-tenths of me has heard about Spanish Fork, UT. So if I was in that group, you'd only need 1 person to have heard of it. Sounds about right.

1:49 remaining; I thought it was pretty easy, there were a few I didn't know but just came back to those. I think the quiz maker did a nice job of using memorable names that people might remember rather than some non-descript name no could differentiate from state to state, e.g. Springfield or Greenville or names like that.
