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.

8934 on first try.

Three of my places were in Canada, which I could recognize. I always plotted down in southernish Manitoba and Saskatchewan, and it turns out they were all in the far north of those provinces. Threw me off completely.

Fun game. I'm terrible at it so far though. I'm not really traveling very far along the roads and just trying to wing it though. Most impressive thing I've done is one time it dropped me in a rural field full of sheep. I went a couple miles up and the road and blindly guessed somewhere in Denmark and was right... at least a couple hundred km away.

I had no idea where the hell I was on that last one. Couldn't even guess the continent.

Also, if you see any billboards with a web address, the domain suffix can be a dead giveaway.

I'm trying to break 15,000 without moving the street view along the road ever. It's not going well.

25911 Biznitches. First one, I got within .5 Km, but then it took forever to a) confirm, and b) refine my suspicions that I was on the effing Alaska Pipeline Highway. There is nothing but dirty snowy pavement going on forever and Peterbilts every 5 miles or so up there. NOTHING!! Even when I knew almost exactly where I was, the map didn't have enough detail to let me pick it precisely, ended up 80 Km off, by far my biggest error.

I'm cheating a ton and still I missed one within the country by a large margin. Got up to 18,152. This could help my geography.

**** MEAD, NEBRASKA! ruined my score. Stuck in that Podunk shithole and found nothing but old houses and a city-building parking lot (not labeled). Not one junker car could have had a Cornhusker N somewhere on it? Finally gave up and picked somewhere in Ohio.

Anyone been dropped in the middle of a dead, flat grassland on a gravel road? This is crap.
