State Identification Game Using MapPoint - Can You Do It?

We've been preparing a geography game using MapPoint -- you have to identify which U.S. State is shown in MapPoint. Doesn't sound too hard, but you have to try it. How well can you do on your first try? Personally I thought I could probably identify 20-30 states by shape, and given context (surrounding states and water) I thought I could do 100%. But in practice my accuracy was more like 90%.
In coming weeks we'll step through all the code to set up and run the game. Feedback from players and programmers alike very much appreciated!
UPDATE: The game is now posted and available for download here --
