Text Instructions

In State Detective, the "game" selects a secret state and the user has six questions to try to guess the selected state. Users must generate "good" questions that allow them to eliminate as many incorrect states as they can per question. Students can ask questions regarding color or relative location. States that are elminated are grayed out. For example, a good first question might be "is the state east of Missouri?" If the answer were to be yes, all of the states west of Missouri would then be greyed out.
