    Default GeoGuessr - ..so you've travelled and know the world??

    http://geoguessr.com/

    The premise is you're dumped on to a random road anywhere in the world and all you can do is utilise google streetview. Then you make a guess as to where you are.

    You get quite canny. Road signs, road markings, the locals, the cars, the terrain, the condition of the roads... the clues are there.. you get five to guess at and you get points.

    Quite pleased that I got 14,868 for my first five.


    Enjoyable and I suppose educational way to while away 10 minutes.

    'Sake. In my pic there's a road, a field and some clouds. No signs, no buildings, no wildlife, no anything. Guessed Holland as it was flat, It was somewhere in the states

    Nice idea though. If it dropped you in a civilized area all the time then that's be quite cool.

    You should be an expert in uncivilised areas

    Only just realized after 3rd guess you can wander round and aren't confined to the starting point

    11321 pts.

    Within 20km of the last guess, well chuffed

    Good fun that.

    Is looking at street names and then searching them on google maps cheating? I ended up in some country lane about 50 miles long surrounded by fields and had no clue. Got 5782 points on my first go lol. Was close in my first one though

    12549 points first game. 4 of mine were in Australia and 1 in Switzerland which I missed by 37km. I really like this game, something to occupy ones mind.

    Son i'm thirty, I only went with your mother cause she's dirty.
