For every category, you must name the five locations that have jumbled, minus a letter. When you unscramble a location, the missing letter will appear by its name. Once all five locations in a category have been named, unscramble the missing letters to get the final location for that category. Note that there is one letter missing in that jumble as well. Once all five categories are complete, unscramble the missing letters in the final category locations to get the final word (not a location). There are no extra letters.
The "Hodgepodge" category contains states, state capitals, countries and country capitals. Inspired by sproutcm's "Finding the Keys" series.
