This is a great teaser!

Yes, it was a great teaser if I could have figured any of the answers out. I should have tried harder, but it is near midnight and I am getting drowsy.

Got 3 out of 5 including my home state.

5/5 but I had to work for them Fun teaser!!

Not being an American I thought I'd have more trouble with this than I did. Got 1, 2 and 3 straight away but needed the hint for 4 and 5.

Fun teaser. Would be nice to see another like it.

Interesting new type of teaser! Thanks for posting

Gave up too soon, but enjoyed getting Washington right away- Fun!

Thanks everybody, glad you enjoyed it

4/5 What a great challenge.

Great new teaser. Give us more. I got 4 right.

That was fun. Loved it, but I only got 4 right. We could use more like that one.

I got #2 right off the bat, then resorted to the clue and internet to get the rest. Different, good!

I really liked this one. Got 4/5, had to go to hint for one of them. I'd like to see more of these. Great idea.

Gotta admit I had more trouble with this than i should have. But it was a really fun, interesting teaser!

Fun, entertaining and challenging teaser; I got two without the hint and the rest with the hint.
