Great quiz. Love it!! Think it would be better if highlighted the answer box because if you know how the battleships are named you can get 70 of them easily.

Well yes, that is true. But I also need to be fair; after all some names have appeared more than once, and I would imagine that BB-5 can throw a lot of people off since it does break "the pattern"

Feel free to check out my other quizzes as well; my destroyer series is now in part five and I got a great series on the civil war going too.

If this were a yellow box quiz it would make more sense. As it stands you just have to remember one name and then type out all the 48 states that existed during the battleship era and you get the lot!

True; but I didn't want to make this quiz too overly challenging;

To be honest, if there was more interest, I'd consider making a yellow-box version. But after three years and less than 300 plays on this quiz... I'm not sure, to be honest

So just know the one battleship not named after a state then enter the US states.
