See how many of the following questions about the USA you can answer (or guess) without looking a map or googling. These are difficult enough that Americans are also encouraged to play/guess.
1. American cities and their citizens:
Angelenos are from: (what city?)
Phoenicians are from: (what city?)
2. Here is a list of 32 selected states, along with their largest cities:
New York: New York City
California: Los Angeles
Nevada: Las Vegas
Louisiana: New Orleans
Missouri: Kansas City
New Jersey: Newark
New Mexico: Albuquerque
North Dakota: Fargo
Virginia: Virginia Beach
South Dakota: Sioux Falls
New Hampshire: Manchester
North Carolina: Charlotte
Question: of the above states, how many of the largest cities are also that state's capital city? Put a tick by each one that qualifies. (Don't use ink, as the tick mark will be difficult to remove from your monitor screen later.)
3. At it's absolute closest point, how many miles separate Russia and the United States?
4. True or false: the USA has no territories or possessions in the Southern Hemisphere.
5. True or false: no British reigning monarch ever visited the USA before the current one.
