There's currently 6 seconds per answer. I think any shorter might be too short.

I think the time is fine. If you get a bunch with long names, it could trip you up unless you're a speed typer.

Once again it is the 'speed typists' versus the knowledge learners. I manage OK but I have a friend who has disabilities that make it difficult to type too quickly. She loves doing the puzzles. If you are worried about how fast you can type why not keep your own personal records for quizzes and stop trying to spoil them for others.

Over 60% are still getting 100% overall, which indicates to me that the time is right, or perhaps even too long still. Your slow friend can always click the "stop" symbol to take the quiz untimed if they so choose. I time my quizzes off of the stats, not personal preference.

I had 43 seconds remaining, but it might have been faster if I had lucked out with more states which had shorter names. I had to retype several because my fingers got all jumbled up trying to quickly type names such as Massachusetts and Tennessee. (Another fun quiz, Stewart!)

For me this is the best way to learn the States. Not just to name them all, but to actually know which each one is.

Is there any way that more of these types of 'random' quizzes could be made?

I'm hoping for capital cities maybe?

Oh, and Oceania is still missing.

Absolutely love these!!

I found Vermont + New Hampshire very tricky because together they look like one single medium-sized rectangular state and I couldn't think what it could be!
