Draw All US State Borders - Extreme

Type the name of two US states that share a border, and that border will be drawn. Also, draw the coasts and international borders. To make coasts, put the name of the state and the body of water. For the great lakes, you must specify which lake it is. To make international borders, put the name of the US state and the name of the state in the other country (Canada or Mexico).
Also, check out my other quizzes Here.
Don't forget the non-contiguous states, they're in here :)

It’s British Columbia not Colombia so it would work if u put the u instead of the o. I can still change the type-in to allow that misspelling tho

Level 63
Dec 21, 2021
Indeed, Colombia is the name of a country in South America, which derives from the Spanish word for Columbus.

Columbia derives from the English word for Columbus.

People often mix both of these names up.

+2
Level 62
Feb 10, 2022
Columbus is the English word for Columbus. Columbia is the name of the place that Columbus discovered. But it didn't catch on- the world preferred to call it America. People from the United States call themselves Americans, which annoys others from the Americas, who wonder why they can't be called Americans. Of course, if Americans called themselves Columbians that would really annoy the Colombians.

I'm glad someone else mentioned this because it's exactly the same as me. About 5 years ago we did the Countries of the World quiz in one of my classes and I was determined to memorize them all. And eventually I did! But I realized that during that time I probably doubled my typing speed and even though I don't do it the perfect typing method way, I barely have to look at the keys so I call that a win lol!

Damn Tennessee and all its borders!

I was afraid you were going to require us to list river crossings as well....

I agree about Massachusetts. And I've practically given up on learning how to spell Saskatchewan <- copy/pasted this one :)

In Spanish Tamaulipas is spelled just the way it sounds, so no problem there. The silent "h" in Coahuila or Chihuahua might be a challenge though.

Wow, great quiz! Only missed some of the Mexican ones. It took some time to spell Saskatchewan right, I never noticed that my usual spelling, Saskachewan, was not the correct one. It is always weird to spell something for years only to realize it is just one of the standard type-ins for some quizzes.

Level 67
Feb 1, 2022
Excellent, TOG25. I am getting addicted to this quiz. I am not from the USA but I feel I could teach US geography blindfolded to any number of US high schoolers. I noticed something doing this quiz that I always pondered about. The small corridors left open between two states so that a third state has access to a fourth state that in reality should not even be on speaking terms. And the size of these corridors! Really? Delaware and Pennsylvania. Can you fit a bus through the gap?
+4
Level 67
Feb 1, 2022
My mistake re Delaware and Pennsylvania. That isn't a corridor. That is a rudely slammed door on someone's part. I think it sweet that they let New Hampshire have a beach on the Atlantic... all five hundred yards of it. The Oklahoma panhandle was a brilliant example of diplomacy and brotherhood. It was really big of Texas to join the party.

Level 44
Feb 8, 2022
Excellent quiz!

However, should be a bit more forgiving to foreigners. Not only we are learning US geography, but to torture us with spelling. Lost a lot of time typing Rhodes over and over again, to find out after the quiz that it is Rhode Island :D

Massachusetts is something which also took minutes to figure out.

Result - disappointing 108

In summary, great test, but should be made easier for those who know, but cannot spell properly the names.
