Dumb-ass game. Once I slotted California and Utah in, I didn't have enough room to slide Nevada into place.

You have to play it like Tetris. Slide it over and into the slot.Dont try to look at it as 2d.

It will allow some overlapping to get states to fit, but only on one side. If you try to overlap on the other side (if another state is on that side as well), it will deny you.

Tetris is 2-d. But if you can figure out how to slide Nevada between Utah and California in this game, I'd like to see it. I got Wisconsin under Minnesota and New Hampshire under Vermont, but the vertical dropping intervals are too large to account for the curvature of the map. And good luck fitting Alabama between Georgia and Mississippi. Annoying. I prefer that game where you had to place the states on the map at their precise locations, and it calculated your average accuracy.

I was coming in expecting a debate on whether or not to include plasmas as a fourth state, not this boring crap.

It will let Nevada overlap California as it is falling, thus allowing it to fit.

I know anxiety pretty well. Actually, excitement too.
