GeoGuessr - Get Lost

www.geoguessr.com

The premise is simple: you are randomly dropped somewhere on the earth, and you have to use Google street view to figure out where you are.

I found this on Reddit and thought there would be plenty of people here who would enjoy it. It's surprisingly fun and addictive.

What's your high score? Mine's 14,235.

Mother****er!! Of all things, I got a scene where it was LITERALLY nothing but an empty stretch of semi-treelined 2 lane blacktop. Horizon to horizon with no buildings, intersections, hills or anything. But it reminded me of some drives I've had to make in Mid-south Rural Illinois.

Turns out it was just north of Springfield. Off by 80-odd miles.

Sheer coincidence.

Lest some might suspect me to be humble bragging, I was WAY off in my other forays. Put a scene from middle Canada in Louisiana, and a scene on an island off the coast of Moracco in Brazil.

Bob Dole is pretty decent at getting close to the correct latitude. Beyond that, though...

This is awesome.

11,033 on my first run. I ended up with two locations in southern Brazil that hurt, but I pretty much nailed one in southern China.

16,556. Beat that, anyone.

I'll admit that I got really lucky on one of them. It dumped me in Milwaukee right in front of the Milwaukee public market. But the others were all pretty hard, and that last one in Norway was really tough. I was sure I was in California or maybe Oregon until I finally saw a road sign that looked odd.

15,584 - Got one within 3.8 Km. All in the right country/state.

Hardest was somewhere INDOORS, it was like a a corridor of a museum that was under construction, all writing visible was in what turned out to be Japanese. I picked the wrong part of Japan, but it was in Japan.

Lost on another b/c one clue suggested SK, Canada, and another strongly suggested Montreal, I went with the latter to mal results.

16,806.

I got lucky though. It gave me the entrance to the Valley of Fire. I knew where it was to within 2 km.

Looking for clues makes it easier~

Just guessed 2 km away from the spot in Fairbanks AK :/ That alone was worth 6300 points. Still only ended up with about 12k and that's my highest one yet

Nice guess on northern Brazil. What made you think north instead of south?
