    Kind of interesting. It`s easiest to find an airport when you find a large highway that has lots of signs. I got lost in Brazil for a while on a dirt road in the middle of no where.

    @lauriloo: Is that with google or without? :-)

    Geoguesser is fun! But the temptation to "google it" is too great.

    For MapCrunch I got put in Japan! Somewhere... the outskits of a small city. Don`t those people have SIGNS!!?! Anywhere? (lolz) I found a bus route, but that didn`t help...

    I found a 7-11... and a Smile Gas Station... Komate Industrial?? Bingo!

    Taoyuan City Tiawan? I had to hop around forever to find that!!

    No. 49, Lane 615, Yong an Rd., Taoyuan City

    "@lauriloo: Is that with google or without?"

    The map you`re looking at on the site is Google but all I did was go up and down the roads until I figured I knew about where I was. They blur out license plates so you can`t tell from that. One had a sign with Spanish on it so I guessed somewhere in Central America. Another had a sign with a maple leaf on it so it was somewhere in Canada. Another looked like middle america with farms and totally flat land for miles in any direction so I guessed Kansas. Another was a city with what I thought was Korean in the signs. The one I was the most off was some place I guessed was in the middle east and it was really South Africa. Otherwise, I was pretty close.

    Got thrown into some farm outside a village called Newtown? Had to travel for miles before i saw the first village (i`m guessing it`s Newtown since there was a car that had "Newton Car Parts" written on it.. managed to locate the village by going the opposite direction where the car was going, which is good since the other way had some 20 miles before i could locate anything.. I`m guessing it`s England by the flora and farm buildings.

    Never mind, got it. It`s not the same as the screenshot, you need to click on "Stealth" below the countries. Carry on as you were!

    Landed smack in the middle of a ski resort high up on a mountain. Made my way down following the lifts, followed some signs around and found a resort town, unfortunately it didn`t seem to lead to a way out and I got a little bored of wandering the unmarked snowmobile paths and quit. I looked up the name of the place, Solitude Ski Resort, apparently it`s pretty damn close to Salt Lake City, Utah. So the real challenge would have just been finding the way out of the damn tourist maze and onto the highway.

    It dropped me in Estonia, in a forest... I made it to the border of Lithuania and followed the signs to Riga, but that was 193 Km, so getting there would take hours. I checked Google maps if I would have found an airport there and I was correct about that.

    I actually invented this game with my friends in real life probably 20 years ago. We would put a friend in the trunk of our car and drive them to the middle of nowhere and let them out and they had to find their way home.

    I tried it and ended up in the middle of the road in front of my house. Good thing as I hate flying.

    @lauriloo: ic! I was just curious. I tried it a couple of times with "no looking it up" but got immensely frustrated.

    Of course one place had a huge sign: Welcome To Ketchikan, First City Of Alaska. :-) That one was easy!

    Now I find it`s as much fun to look things up as it is to guess about them. Playing MapCrunch requires some looking up stuff, I find.

    Note: To reveal where you are just UN-Click "stealth"...
