    It is rather addictive. My best time ever was about 2min 50sec (not bad for a Brit). To be fair, it depends on your keyboard skills, as well as your geographical knowledge. I always work from west to east. New England gets very intense!

    I had 3:36 time remaining. I also couldn't spell Massachusetts, and for the life of me, I couldn't remember Tennessee and Alabama.

    I blanked on Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, Mississippi, New Jersey, and Minnesota.

    I tried singing the States Song, but just kind of hummed when I got to those states.

    Realized I couldn't spell a few states.

    It took me about 3 minutes.. It would have been shorter, but I too had to work to spell a couple of states.. there went about 30 seconds.

    I wonder how we'd all do with the provinces of Canada or the European countries... or central/ south america?

    If you really want a challenge, try this: 60 second blitz: states

    Accomplished it after about 4 tries. 57 seconds.

    Ah! my first time was 1:49 (or roughly 8 minutes left on the clock)... I lost a least 30 seconds between spelling errors and typos. I can't say I blanked on any states...

    I only managed in 2 minutes and 55 seconds. Naming the state capitals would be interesting. It would take me much longer.
