You definitely need a strategy to get it done. Three states in New England will get you all 11 in that corner. Six strategically placed western and mid-western states gets you 34 more. (So 9 states will cover 45). That leaves Hawaii, Alaska, and 3 more singles.

Best example yet of good strategy: Use MAINE and MASSACHUSETTS. Maine is much shorter than New Hampshire, and in order to get Maine you must use either it or New Hampshire, so use Maine. As for Massachusetts, it's long, but it gives you Vermont, Rhode Island, Connecticut and New York--so use it.

QM, any reason why on your countries quiz, if I type (say) France, the countries around it will go green, but if i then type Spain, which borders france, it is accepted, whereas on here if I type a state that borders another that I have already typed it isn't? Quite frustrating, especially for us non Americans who may well know all the states names but can't instantly place them on the map.
+1
level 48
Dec 9, 2017
If the state or country gives you any more than you already had it will be accepted (presumably on the other quiz you hadn't filled in Portugal and/or Morocco, so Spain was still allowed to fill them in). For instance, if you have already typed New Hampshire Maine will not be accepted, but you can type Maine then New Hampshire, and New Hampshire will fill in Vermont and Massachusetts.

It's a typing skill contest! Be nice to be able to try these typing with one finger. What is the best that can be done without the timer? Can the 48 be done in less than 10?

I'm a slow typist, but got it withTennessee, Texas, South Dakota, Alaska. Hawaii, Iowa, Ohio, Oregon, Colorado, Georgia, Delaware, Maine, and Massachusetts - in that specific order. The procedural memory finally kicked in after constant repetition, and with only 1 second to spare.

I do not think that this quiz should be necessary for the 'Border Badge' as it is nothing to do with knowledge and all to do with typing. It gives professional / amateur typists an unfair advantage and is a case of using a given list of states to get through in time. This quiz should be part of the 'Typing Badge'.

Here's a tip: NEVER use New Hampshire! Never! You MUST do either New Hampshire or Maine in order to get Maine. Which one is shorter? And I highly recommend using Massachusetts. It's long, granted, but it gives you a bunch of other long ones, so it works. I tried Maine, Vermont, New York only to realize that didn't give me Rhode Island. Maine and Massachusetts is the way to go.

Gotten up to fifteen seconds left, here's how: Ohio, Iowa, Oregon, Georgia, Alaska, Hawaii, New York, Rhode Island or Connecticut--doesn't matter, both for RI, both have eleven letters, and it doesn't count spaces--Maine, Montana. Covers all of them, uses the shortest state names available with the highest impact relative to the time it takes to type them. Wouldn't work if CO and AZ weren't considered touching tho.

you could at least make it 35 seconds long just to correct the eventual typos in writing Massachusetts I always write Massachussetts it sounds more logical but it's incorrect I know. and I have to correct it, wasting 2 seconds of time 35 seconds is not that much but at least you make it possible
