    I did alright when in a city, but most of the time you find yourself in some back road in the middle of nowhere, with no signs anywhere nearby.

    The closest I got was 8 m, with my wife doing 3 m once

    Thanks so much for posting this, FoolsPrussia. It is AWESOME! This looks to become one of my favorite online pastimes. (I got 9374 on my first round, but hope to improve my scores going forward. Lesson learned: Parts of Botswana look a lot like the Australian outback. Who knew?!)

    It`s all fun and games until you find yourself in the middle of nowhere for a location.

    I got just under 1100. Got lucky on one, there was a sign that said Colorado right in the pic.

    Very cool post! Interesting how landscape and trees can give away a location.

    Definitely good for filling the gap between birth and death. I found places by searching road-names, telephone numbers on local trader`s vans, points of interest like striped churches, railway stations, etc, in another window.

    It`s so completely random! Getting a "good score" is just plain luck!

    Parts of Botswana look a lot like the Australian outback.
    @qurlz4: I had the opposite problem! I thought the `outback` as in South Africa!

    I got British Columbia and Sweden dead on! But failed the other 3 times...

    Never in a town or city, just barren wilderness... and an Industrial Museum...

    Makes it VERY re-play-able!

    Thans @FoolsPrussia! Will bookmark for further fun! (and add to favorites too)

    Haha! 1.81 km away for 6464 points!

    It helps when the NAME of the town is in the picture... and street signs... idk why I was so far away actually...

    On the "guess here" map you can ZOOM IN really close: it will even say where Starbucks is!

    In other words: travel around a little! See some sights, find some signs :-)

    And if you get a really easy one? You can spot a famous landmark or something?

    0.061 meters

    Still only 6474 points though... :-)

    Of course it helps to look up names and such too...

    This reminds me of a science fiction novel I read in my early teens--name and author long since forgotten. The protagonist is sent for punishment or training (I forget the details) to a planet and has to survive with almost nothing in the way of tools or supplies. A lot of strange animals, strange plants, strange weather, and weird sounds at night. Over the course of several chapters, you begin to realize it`s Earth and spend several more chapters trying to figure out where. Awesome book. If anyone recognizes this from my poor description, please inform. Thanks! =^.^=

    0.434 km will net you 6,442 points. I was smack dab in the middle of a city with plenty of signage. Should have been closer, but I didn`t zoom in enough on the game map. :/

    at 0.002 km, I got 6479 points, my guess is that`s as high as it gets, it`s either that or 6480

    11315 – getting better.
    The way to play this would be with, say, 15 seconds to pick your pony. Otherwise, you can open another window and look up businesses, building names, monuments, etc.
