    94%. Avg error 10 miles. 300 seconds.

    Just hope it doesnt make you place all the boxy states in the middle first! (wyoming and colorado are hard to get right!)

    Next!

    I dunno about confussion, but Confusion is actually DC which was omitted from the map.

    100% @ 313... Would have been faster but I was trying to push TX into the Pacific!

    The biggest problem is having no references when you have to place something like Missouri or Oklahoma or Montana (all of which I 'missed') within a certain distance of correct when there are no nearby states, rivers, or other boundaries for reference. If you play a second time (or more), the states will come up in a different order, so you might or might not improve your score. I think it depends on filling in the big 'white spaces' last.

    Oh yeah: 96% and 98% with 11 and 4 mile average errors.

    I thought I did pretty good until I saw the other posts. I got 44 perfect, average error was 22 miles, a score of 88% and a time of 388 sec. I was overall generally correct in the location, but was off a bit from time to time. Oh well.

    96%, 5 miles, 331 sec. I wonder if it randomises? The comment about Oklahoma didn't apply for me, as all the surrounding states were in place already. it started me with Utah and finished with South Carolina.
