REVIEW - Printable United States Trivia Pack.


I received a few printables from Python Printables. They have all 50 states, and they sent me up to 5. So far, I have printed out Arizona -it's where I live now, Ohio - it's my home state, and Hawaii - it's my dream state. 

Let me tell you a little about the trivia pack. Its a printable United States Trivia pack and is a GREAT deal for the money. You get all 50 states, each with 15 questions (so 750 questions total). It covers just about everything. State nicknames, trees, flowers, history, funny facts, bizzare laws, local customs and much more! They are delivered via encrypted download. Once you pay for it, you receive an email link to the download page for your purchase.
Now, how much are you expecting to pay for all 50 states - 750 questions? Your thinking probably something ridiculous, huh? Well, let me burst that bubble. Its pretty cheap actually. Only $19.95 for all 50 of the trivia games.



Now, onto the review!  Lets start with the Arizona page. Like stated, there is 15 questions on the page. Some of the questions are;
#4. What can happen if you refuse somebody a glass of water?
#5. How do they combat the graffiti problem in Tempe, AZ?
#6. Who was the town marshal of Tombstone during the shootout at the OK Corral?
#10. How hot was it in Phoenix on the hottest recorded day - June 26, 1990?
#12. What can you use to defend yourself against an intruder in Arizona?
#14. What is unusual about Daylight Savings Time in Arizona?

Did you try to answer any of these?
OK, heres the answers! They are located on the 2nd page for that state...
#4. You can be arrested; it's unlawful to refuse a person a glass of water in the state.
#5. it is illegal to buy spray paint if you are under 18 years old.  ~~~ But I think thats more than just Tempe, I know Mesa does that too.
#6. Not Wyatt Earp, but his brother Virgil.
#10. 122 degrees F... Yup, Hot!
#12. Only the same kind of weapon the intruder possesses.
#14. It is not observed there, except within the Navajo Nation.    ~~~~ Its true! But makes everything difficult lol.

 Some of these I already knew. Actually, most of them. I do wish these were a little more difficult, rather than something that has been passed around on the internet via email multiple times (those stupid law emails gets sent around a lot). But some of the questions did teach me something.. Would be great for kids who are learning about the states. 


Now, for Ohio - My home state. I was born and raised here... So In essence, I should know most of it lol.
#1. Which General, famous for his defeat at the Battle of Little Bighorn, was born in New Rumley, OH?
#4. Name the state tree of Ohio?
#8. What is the state bird of Ohio?
#9. What is the state motto of Ohio?
#14. Name the colorful kids’ card game invented by Merle Robbins of Reading, OH, and still sold today by Mattel?

Did you try to answer those too? 
heres the answers!
#1. George Armstrong Custer
#4. The Buckeye, so called because its toxic seeds resemble the eyes of a male deer.
#8. The Cardinal. Various Cardinal breeds are the state birds of Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, North Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia. 
#9. "With God all things are possible".    ~~ That actually kind of explains why its on everything out there! LOL
#14. UNO. There are now dozens of versions, including editions licensed to The Simpsons and Star Trek. 

Pretty cool. I had no idea that Uno was created in Ohio! Ahh, my Home.


Now, onto Hawaii. Lets all learn something.

#3. How many islands are included in Hawaii?
#4. How many states joined the union before Hawaii?
#5. What time zone is Hawaii in?
#7. How many letters are in the Hawaiian alphabet?
#10. Hawaii is the world’s most isolated population center. Which is its nearest neighbor: California, Japan, or Samoa?
#13. What is Mauna Kea?

Time for Answers!!! 
#3. Eight
#4. All of them. Hawaii is #50.
#5. Hawaii has its own time zone - Hawaiian Standard Time, 11 hours behind GMT.
#7. twelve.
#10. California. But its still over 2300 miles away! 
#13. The tallest mountain in the world from base to peak - most of it is under water.

In my opinion, its pretty cool. And would love to see all the states! I think I may have to buy them all! And again, $19.95 for all 50 states. That is not bad at all.

5/5 stars from me!
