How well do you know the 50 states? Do you know the percentage of the population that walk or drive to work in Chicago, IL? What percentage of people make between $50,000 and $75,000 in St. Petersburg, FL? How about how many women have doctoral degrees in Sacramento, CA?

With each state challenge you correctly complete, share your score or badge on social media sites including Facebook and Twitter. Complete all the states and unlock the U.S. Challenge!

What's New in Version 1.1
minor edits to badges and links.
The graphics are nice, the song is pleasant and the badges are awesome!(where do I buy stickers and t-shirts of each state's badge?!)
Also, the methods of play are fun- pop bubbles, match items, organize data.
But... the stats are a bit simple and there are only 4 questions per state. I love statistics and would love for my students to use knowledge about the state to be quizzed. This game comes up short.
I would love the questions to be more rigorous, analytical and comparative. Questions should start simple and build to be more challenging. Also, questions should relate to something or be able to be figured out if you are aware of the state, not just guessing or adding population.
Overall make it harder, timed, strategic and provide high score charts to compare with others in your own state as well as others.
I don't get it. It asks me a question, like "what % of Alaska residents have a bachelors degree?", and then it makes me select my answer from among a bunch of floating blobs. Except the blobs don't have numbers. They're just blobs that you have to 'pop' to reveal the answer behind it, and the. It tells you if that was the right answer. So the game is not to make an educated guess about the demographics of some state, but rather to blindly guess which blob is covering up the right answer. This is vexing. Delete.
I can't able to write all the time
Please help me in writing a review or atleast post that review
