    Big time waster

    For those of us that love geography! My best score is about 13,800 and I've wasted plenty of my work day on it, be warned.

    I sucked ass. I'm pretty good at North American geo but not much into global geo. I got below 10K both times I tried.

    Shiggy, I have no idea how you got over 15,000 on your first try unless your were googling clues.

    I think that is where I retire from this game 'till someone beats that score.

    Closest I got was 28 metres

    My scores are too low to even post, maybe because I pick CA. all the time.

    I officially suck at this game. ~4000 first round. I then learned you could move around a bit. My score skyrocketed to near 6000 as a result. I then learned you could zoom in on the map in the upper right and more precisely place the pin. Low and behold, I reached lofty scores around 7000. Then, I learned you could walk around in the world a bit more and see good clues--phone numbers, street signs. Yes! I reached scores about 8000 . My conclusion is how I began this post--I officially suck at this game.


    My last round. I've gotten worse, so I quit.

    How? It's not called blind mans' bluff is it.

    It's called using the intelligence services I have at hand, right in front of me on my desk, to gather facts. Something neither of our governments seem to do well.
