Sequential U.S. States on a Map

Name each U.S. State, in sequence, that appears on the map in blue to make the next state appear. Repeat until all 50 states have been correctly named!
The progress bar at the bottom shows your progress. The blue highlighted cell must be the left-most grey cell to correspond with the blue on the map.
This was a proof-of-concept for the "sequential" mechanic suggested by Oskar. You can visit his sequential quiz here: Sequential European Rivers and Cities

Not sure why, but every answer I type in on my phone the screen jumps back to the ad and I have to go back down and pan around looking for a blue state.

Not sure I can do much from my end, sounds like a potential bug with the mobile site?

Possible workaround: view the page "as Desktop Site", it's usually available on most browsers and will show you the page as if your phone is a little browser. This should fix most problems I would think. Also, because you're not having to read anything for the quiz, it means you don't need to zoom in to see anything, just enough to see the map.

How did you make this? It's a great idea.

Not easily! The map essentially has three copies of itself, a white layer on top, a blue layer below that and then a green layer below that. I've then set it up so that when an answer is correct it hides its blue layer (thus appearing green) and hides the next state's white layer, thus making it blue.

It was quite logically challenging to get this to function within JetPunk's restriction!

I can't imagine the work it would take, but if you did this same concept as a World Quiz, I can almost guarantee it would quickly become one of the most popular quizzes on this site. Well done, btw.

Well done on the ordering of the states. It could be made much easier or even more difficult by choosing another order, but I think this is a very good order.

Thanks Sillie! I tried my best to order them so that it jumped around the map a bit but also wasn't impossible.

What a great quiz, I really like the concept. Only got 35 though... I really need to improve my US state knowledge, I've been focusing on countries and flags too much.

Apparently 54% of people complete it first time, a rather surprising number! I guess that's JetPunk for you! :P

that might be because more people are getting fewer correct out of the remaining 46%. thus brining the average down.

It took me a few goes to complete it, as I got stuck on a couple of states (mind block), namely, Connecticut, then Missouri, West Virginia, Iowa. Then I was sweet!

I just got one... I probably take the average down haha. I can name all the states but only for some I know exactly where they are, a few more sort of region (east west etc)

I had two minutes remaining and I wasn't trying to rush. Those of us who had the US state puzzles when we were kids probably found it quite easy.

Should've been easy, but very difficult to do on a small phone screen. Spent half of my time trying to find the highlighted state

Also, what about a version putting them in order of when they became states? https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_U.S._states_by_date_of_admission_to_the_Union
