Up for a little challenge?
I came across this amusing online game, (Thanks to the Yogscast) and I was addicted. Geoguessr is a clever internet game that plomps you down at random, somewhere on the globe. It uses Google maps street view so you can explore the location and find out where you are. Just like this picture…
Now… you have to make a guess as to your location on the planet. This one was rather tough. (ended up being in Brazil). I prefer places like these… city views to explore. You can literally “drive” around the town to take a peek.
You have five different locations each gives you points depending on how close your are to the actual location. It’s quite fun, be prepared to be addicted.
See if you can beat my high score of 17, 700
