OCT 16, wordplay maps: American Scramble-towns 11,12



(Same old introductory message ...)
Who would ever have guessed? It turns out that an unparalleled word in generating anagrams (letter scrambles) is P-A-L-I-N-D-R-O-M-E-S. We have taken advantage of that property to create this unique series of wordplay maps of imaginary American (and Canadian) locales, each one completed by its official two-letter state (or provincial) abbreviation. 


 

LINKS: 
Forward to U.S.A. map #13
Back to U.S.A. map #9
Let's skip all this stuff and get on to the Canadian version, eh?
