Guess the US Highway challenge
« on: October 10, 2021, 11:24:12 PM »

You know the drill. 12 hours between guesses, region reveal after 24 hours, all other common challenge game rules apply. I will allow 3DUSs for now as many of them are very long unlike 3dis.

There's more than twice as many US routes as interstates, plus most people are more familiar with the interstates. I think there's just too many US routes for it to work, unless you started with a region reveal or something else to make it easier.

What would keep the challenge going but making it easier would to declare whether it was a 2di (in that case no 1-5 or 6-0) or a 3di (in that case declare whether it was a 1-3 or 4-7 (since higher number 3di US routes get less common the higher number they get)) (U.S. 400 and 101 would fall into the 2di category). This way we wouldn't be bouncing along so many U.S. highways, and yes, the region reveal would make this a bit better after 24 hours. In this case I'm guessing U.S. 6.
