Geoguessr

Post by doiknow » Thu Jun 06, 2013 8:51 pm

Found a nice variation of "Where is it?" on the web.
Your are being placed at some random google Street View location and have to guess the exact location. Once you submitted your guess you will be shown the real location. The closer you are the more points you receive. After 5 rounds you get an overview on how good (bad) you performed... since every game is different this is a nice way to kill some time, if bored...

Here's the link:
http://geoguessr.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Well and just in case you are in the mood of a challenge...beat 16.148 on this one:
http://geoguessr.com/?s=eyJ0b3RhbFBvaW5 ... NzVdXX0%3D" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
It should be possible since the maximum value is around 32k+ (5 x 6479 to be exact...)
One Currency, one Union, one Eurobilltracker...
My dots are of the same order as 10.

But I must confess I used google, and I'm tended to think you didn't! :wink:

"You got 17261 points in total."

I could find the right location twice, but pointed wrong twice too for a long distance (and was reasonable correct once).

I play this game every now and then since a few weeks. I usually don't get further than 13000 points. But I don't use google to search. 8)

The game is difficult but it is also entertaining for me

My score is: 10173 points in total, I need to practice more
