GeoGuessr
« on: May 20, 2013, 10:14:50 PM »

In this game, you'll be given a Google Maps street view, which you can navigate, and then you have guess where the original is taken. Points are based on how close your were.

On my first attempt, my score was 9842. I keep not putting locations in Mexico. I spent much more time researching round two, and managed to get 23418.

Saw the XKCD comic, huh? ;)

My highest score so far was 22,000-something. Keep getting Australia and Eastern Africa confused!

I got 7542 on my first round. I'm mad because my second guess I was like "either Canada or Scandinavia" and I choose Canada. I was 50/50 away from tons of points! Dammit.

I got 11842 my first go-around and even managed to guess carefully select an answer that was only 52 miles off point.

I got it down to 1.42 thanks to some exhaustive googling.  Lousy Cyrillic making wasting time tough.

Seriously, fuck Russia. That took a ridiculous amount of detective work considering I was plonked right in the middle of a town.

I lucked out with a Canadian location that was across the street from the local newspaper office. I was 0.01 km from the location. The next site I got ended up being a sand mine in Australia. I guessed somewhere in Brazil... off by thousands of km for that one!  Humility. It drove me nuts, and I'm going to have to keep trying.

You guys make me chuckle.



Also, this game cheats.  I was dumped in the middle of some family's backyard in Belarus and wasn't able to navigate out of it.  Still, my guess was only about 1300 miles off target.
