    Anyone else tried this addicting game? This site plops you down on a random Google Earth location, and you have to guess where. You get 5 locations and the closer you get to the location earns you more points.

    This is not how I thought I would be spending my Friday evening.

    wow this is pretty cool.

    it’s pretty hard to guess too sometimes when you get a streetview of a dirt road on a flat unpopulated area with nothing but scrub trees to try to identify in a low rez photo. LOL

    I managed 8504 on my first try which didn’t seem horrible, but i have a feeling i’m going to be playing this a lot for a while.

    thanks for posting

    edit: holy crap i just got one in europe within 30km! LOL this is too much fun

    edit2: ok they gave me an easy one. there was a hotel visible. in Longyearbyen norway. got it in 0.5 km

    edit3: ok second game 23,102. Got a couple of them within 1km and blew one completely (middle of NOWHERE). Wow this is too much fun!

    edit4: NO FREAKIN WAY it just dropped me by Dock and creek st in ketchikan alaska. I actually walked on that spot in 2006!

    First place it put me at was Niagara Falls. Then it messed with my head and put me on top of a mountain in Georgia (former USSR).

    The last place I got was the start of a ski run on top of a mountain with no direction arrows (no movement possible) a sign in what looked like chinese and a flag seen nearly edge on.

    It would have been awesome if there was streetview down the ski run! But no.

    seriously. I’ve had a few games now where I’ve gotten everything within a 0.1 km except some dirt goatpath in the middle of Australia.
