I have issues with this game.

First of all, I got 23, which isn't bad... but here's the thing: from when I was in 5th grade and had to memorize all the states and capitals, I just never forgot. It's a skill I show off when I want to impress (read: nauseate) people. "Name a state, I'll tell you its capital." Some people will go on for a few states, but lose interest when they discover how worthless it truly is to know that Olympia is the capital of Washington.

What I don't know is the exact placement of said capital on the states, but at least I got each right, therefore my Avg error = 0 (how does that make sense still? I didn't even come close in placing Cheyenne in Wyoming).

Also, they have Harrisburg placed WAY too far east on that map, so I even got my home state wrong.
