Nebraska also works as bordering state #2 for "done".

Also, Maine doesn't border Vermont.

Mississippi can work as well as Missouri for the second one. Also I'm pretty sure the ninth one wouldn't accept my answer for Tennessee when it was spelled correctly with two n's but would accept it spelled incorrectly with one n

For Mate, Alabama-Tennessee could also work.

I really like this quiz. It's a really good concept.

Needs a bit of fixing. Quit annoying to type in every state with an M till you hit the one that fits.

Nice idea, but I found it quite confusing that the hint ' "HONE" = IdaHO NEw Mexico ' includes two states which are NOT bordering each other.

Good point. Changed description clue to Nevada pending approval
