    88%. Dropped Nevada too soon. Knew all of the aprox locations but was just a bit off on the NE states w/o any boarde at all. That was fun.

    some of it depends on in which order they give you the states. If you get the land locked interior states first it's a lot harder than if you get the coastal states first!
