Have you ever tried to play a game only to find the rules so confusing that you had to look for help online?

It turns out some states do more than others.

The study by online gaming site Hearts.land reveals that Vermont residents look for help to play games more than any other state. With around 1,684 searches per 100,000 residents, Vermont has the highest search volume for help playing the most popular games in the country.

The research was done by compiling a list of over 650 of the most popular board, card, and video games, analyzing searches for each, followed by 15 common search terms, such as 'how to play,' 'rules,' and 'tutorial' to find out which games have each state stumped.



Results show that Vermont has the highest search volume per capita in the United States, with cribbage being the game Green Mountain State residents are searching for help with most, bucking the national top search: Pickleball.

A spokesperson from Hearts.land commented on the findings: “Pickleball surprisingly took the top spot with a significant number of searches compared to the most popular games in the world. The search volumes highlight which states find different games the most confusing, with pickleball, poker, and UNO taking the top spots nationally. At the state level, there were some clear differences. Cribbage came out on top in ten states; Farkle was the top search in Oklahoma; Rummy was most confusing in West Virginia; Nevada’s top five searches are casino games, implying that most tourists and residents don’t know how to play before they arrive”.
