A little coverage game here, places of 5k+ population included. AK & HI ARE INCLUDED. Type names in LOWER CASE WITHOUT PUNCTUATION. Cover the maps with circles of different radii. Click on the four distances (200, 100, 50 & 25) on the bottom left to change which radius circle you will place. Covering places will accumulate places and population. You can place up to 100 circles. Be careful! Placing a circle which will overlap an already chosen place will end the game! You can overlap circles so long as a place is not in the overlapped region. **PLEASE NOTE** many places have similar names. For example, “Jacksonville” is not unique. To choose Jacksonville, FL, simply type “jacksonvillefl”, and so on. **ALSO NOTE** some answers require typing in other answers you may not want to guess. In this case, if you want to answer “Virginia Beach, VA”, simply type it..”Virginia, MN” will not be chosen. If you want simply “Virginia” type ‘virginia.’ with the period at the end. NOTE that typing in “phoenix” will not answer Phoenix, AZ – so that means either there is another place in another state where you must put “phoenixaz”, or another city starting with “Phoenix”, which is the case in this example – so typing ‘phoenix.’ will get you your answer. LASTLY, in a couple cases there are multiple places of the same name in a single state. Madison, WI is an example. To choose the largest Madison (typically the one you want), type ‘madisonwi1’ – the rest are ‘madisonwi2’ and so on (need the state too as there are madison’s in other states) – this is quite rare.

    Not that you’re busy or anything, but this one is ripe for an update…

    Can this be updated to show high scores i.e. total population or total cities?
