State Quizzes

We here at Sporcle love learning about the United States. There is an immense amount of facts, figures and trivia about each of the states in the U.S.A., and we have a timed quiz for just about all of them. The most popular game of all time on Sporcle is name the U.S. States quiz, but you can also try the 13 Original Colonies quiz, or even the states by their capital city quiz if you really want a challenge. If U.S. trivia isn't what you're looking for, you could always try a quiz about the States of Germany or Mexico. Either way, by the time you've played all of these quizzes, you'll be a state trivia champion.
