Didn't realise you could use a state more than once- would have helped if I'd read the instructions. But then again maybe not as I didn't recognise that many and only scored 5!

Being from NJ I just want to say that "Skylands" is more a region made up by the tourism bureau. The Pine Barrens would be one more fitting for NJ.

Agreed. I grew up in New Jersey (about 10 miles south of what is apparently defined as "the Skylands", in fact) and literally the only time I ever saw that term was in a tourism brochure at a "visitor center". The Pine Barrens would definitely be a better choice, as that's a term for a region that people in New Jersey actually use.

Figured I'd reply again since this quiz rolled back around for me after 4 years, and the "Skylands" clue is still there. I wanted to emphasize again that "Skylands" was made up by some tourism bureau (usually accompanied by pictures of hot air balloons) to try to market some parts of northern New Jersey, and literally no one who lives there (or anywhere) actually uses the term, as can be seen by the number of replies here. The tiny percentage of people who actually got that answer are likely just those who looked it up online. "Pine Barrens" or even "Meadowlands" would be a much more reasonable answer... they're not necessarily super-widely known, but at least people who live in New Jersey or the surrounding area, or who are just general geography nerds, might have some reasonable chance of getting it.

Have lived most of my life in NJ and have known of the Pine Barrens (and it's most famous mythical inhabitant, the Jersey Devil....hence the name of the professional hockey team) since the mid-70s. I never heard of the Skylands region until this year. And I've now LIVED in the Skylands region for nearly 20 years. Pine Barrens >>>> Skylands. Not. Even. Close.

New Jersey did not sound like the kind of state that would have a region called "Skylands." I guessed literally every state west of the Mississippi before that.

If they had used the Pine Barrens I would have gotten it. There is a great episode of the sopranos with Christopher and Paulie in the Pine Barrens

"Skylands" should be "the Highlands" for NJ. Or even better, change it to the Pine Barrens, as suggested above.

Never heard of Skylands for New Jersey. I don't even know what it would stand for. I eventually got it, but that was just through guessing and working my way through the map of the U.S. as I knew all the others. As others suggested, I think the Pine Barrens would be more appropriate. Nice quiz otherwise.
