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.August 3, 2013 2:13 am at 2:13 am #547424
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

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).August 4, 2013 8:41 pm at 8:41 pm #547428

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.August 4, 2013 11:43 pm at 11:43 pm #547429
