32,500 must be the maximum possible score then.
05/21/2013 01:56:42 PM · #28
Here's a couple variations we could try to cut down on the time:

Don't move - You can only look around and zoom. No moving from the spot you land on. Make a guess from there. (I got over 9k first time)

Most Interesting Pics - grab some screenshots and post the most interesting places/people/scenes. I found a statue of what I think is the Ukranian Batman...

6478 each for the 15 Meters and 9 Meters

6479 each for the 1 Meter guesses.

I'm betting that 6479 or 6480 are the max scores per round.

If it's 6480, then that's 32,400 maximum possible. If it's 6479, then 32,395 would be the max.

Ahh, but even with forever, some are still really hard!

So, three classes of competition, and a screen shot collection?

Max Score - Get it perfect, perfect

Don't Move - Stay where you are

No Leaving - Stay in the game, no outside help - take your time

Most Interesting Picture - Get a great screen shot during your adventures!

I didn't realize you could move. That does make it quite a bit easier.

Not necessarily - I moved so far away to find a sign that when I figured out where I was, I had moved quite a ways from where I started - I assume your guess applies to your entry point.

Challenge me if you dare - I was 15 meters away twice, and 9 meters away once - so there's some chance to beat me, but the other two were 1 meter away, and I think that's about as good as you can do.


proof, or it didnt happen :)

Another 9k+ score and I learned something about myself: anytime I see something in Spanish, I think I must be in Mexico.

Most Interesting Pics - grab some screenshots and post the most interesting places/people/scenes.

and here's what else I learned: I see dead Russian people...

and some Aussies seem to worship/idolize/deify construction equipment...

Darn it, I've been playing this thing for hours. And in the last 3 games Finland has popped up. That helps the score!

Last score 19,000+. But it's not easy.

Still though, you're better off with some way of narrowing it down. I've gotten a lot of dirt roads, rickety fences, broken down vehicles... just boring as hell landscapes, like the Dust Bowl met the apocalypse. Tough to guess with an accuracy as Canada's so big.

i got one in Canada, i had to keep going up the road until i came to a campground, then kept traveling until i found a sign for a town.

I got 26194 - with the help of google I got within 1-2km on the first 3, then they stuck me out in a country road in the Yukon with nothing around - I got thrown off because I saw a 70mph sign, and figured that it was in the states - then they stuck me in a location that I was not able to move, but actually guessed within 4km!

I've got screen shots all the way.

If you'd really like to see them, I can upload - but then you can't challenge me on that particular game anymore...

There's a "return to start point" button. That can be useful once you've found your signpost.

Does it "walk" you back the way you came, or instantly transport you? Either way, I never know what direction I headed or how far I went.

Now do that at least four times in a row and you'll have a higher score than me! :)

(Then send me the challenge me link. I'll still beat ya)
