No, you haven’t read the thread title wrong lol... after an extremely long break, State Battles is back! Round 5 ended with Western Australia being crowned the winners and the game going on a hiatus. It was unknown at the time whether the game would return again. However, here it is! Round 6 is about to begin!

[b:24b31c8d4a]How to Play[/b:24b31c8d4a]
State Battles is a team game where teams are determined by which state you live in. An initial question is posted in the thread to kick things off and the first person to correctly answer that question gets a point for their state. It is then that state’s turn to ask the next question. The game continues until one state reaches [b:24b31c8d4a]30 points[/b:24b31c8d4a].

[b:24b31c8d4a]Rules[/b:24b31c8d4a] (please read)
1. If someone answers your question correctly, it is your duty to post the updated leader board.
2. Do not edit your post which contains your answer to a question.
3. You may not answer a question asked by someone from your own state.
4. Questions should not be bias towards or against any state/territory
5. Generally, the person who correctly answered the question gets to ask the next one. However, someone from the same state may ask the question instead. First in first served.
6. Only one question can be asked at a time. If a question has sub questions, such as 'Name the following locations', a maximum if 6 'locations' can be asked (other examples are scramble questions, name the person questions and fill-in-the-missing-letter questions).
7. Only one point is to be rewarded per question.

If you have any queries, be sure to ask! Finally, each team has a new team banner along with a new team name and mascot (just for fun!). Introducing...

the platypus because it was furry with a duckbill and webbed feet, and it had a pouch and is a monotreme, of which only two types exist in the world (the other being the echidna).

In short, it looked like a man-made animal, and naturalists of the day thought that skilled Chinese people had created it.
