    It took me a couple of tries before I realized you could go up and down the road. Just remember, you have to mark where you started - not where you are when you figure it out!

    10278 first try. Two locations in Oz, I got really lucky and guessed somewhere close, one in S. Africa I thought was Oz, One in Bolivia had a signpost which helped and only one in UK was I fairly sure I was within 500 km. Some of you guys have to be cheating - or getting really, really, really lucky - like go out and buy a lottery ticket right now kind of lucky.

    It's not cheating - it's using your resources! I googled like a muthafuck to break 32,000. It still takes some skill and luck to do it, though.

    Ughh it also didn't give me any arrows to get out of here...

    It also said the location was off the coast of Cuba. In the water. I guessed Las Vegas.

    I guess there's some glitches.

    i like this game as well, 4 pictures done and the worst within 9m and best at 1 m of the spot but the last is within a stadium in guatemala with no possibility to look outside, how to cope with that.

    I had a location under water- fish, turtles, corals. I correctly guessed that it was Great Barrier Reef, but still was off by 130km.

    freetors, I hate you. So much time wasted:D

    Looks like there's a new version in the works: https://www.geoguessr.com/beta

    Dunno why they call it Beta, shouldn't it be Geoguessr 2.0? :D

    Anyway, for me the beta works much smoother in every way. Too bad they haven't added the sharing option yet. Here you can see the new scoring system - max 5000 per round making for a grand total of 25000 points.

    Took some time and a shitload of googling :evil The Taiwan one was the hardest, 1,5 miles until I found letters I could read instead of chinese characters.

    Australia kept screwing with me. Looks too much like South Africa... or Texas for that matter.

    Cool game.

    I get Australia at least once a game and I can usually figure out that it's Australia. I wouldn't mind it so much if the whole freakin country didn't look exactly the same. All that red dirt.
