How well do you know your world?

We’ve just set this game up on our website: http://bit.ly/1h6gXAn

It drops you anywhere in the world, using Google Streetview, and you have to guess where you are! You get five gos and then a final score depending on the distance between your guess and the actual locations!

I just scored 8381 and am pretty pleased! Have a go and share your score here.

And no cheating, please!

Also – feel free share your score with us on Twitter using #RGgeoguessr

Happy guessing!

8157. I’m officially depressed. Although I did think Alaska was South Africa so I was never going to score big…!

There will be on Monday when I’ve spent the weekend in Canterbury and visited the Chocolate Cafe (thanks to Becca’s recommendation)! :)

Second go I got 13,233! Does a second go count? I was very lucky in that one of the places was only a few hundred km from the previous one…

Quite pleased with 14864 points. A game of extremes: only 100m away from the right roundabout in Funchal, but damn, those signs in Cyrillic are NO help whatsoever, setting me 2,400km off course for one go.

14,596 but I cheated by looking up a couple of town and street names I spotted, otherwise I had the country right but the specific location would have just been pot luck. I think the game would be more consistent/meaningful if all the textual information was absent.
