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.

Exactly. You never know where you'll end up, which is why you should always carry a pocketknife, a powerbar, and a bottle of water.

And maybe a condom in case you end up in Bangkok or Rio or Amsterdam.

My best without moving from the starting location was 15,081, My best overall is 20581.

Those of you in the 30,000s must have been exactly at the location on all your guesses.

You people who are using the maps and using google are leaving yourselves woefully unprepared in the event of spontaneous teletransportation. If you get spontaneously teletransported to a random spot on the globe, you aren't going to have the map to help you. You may not have your phone, and even if you did it probably wouldn't work due to the large-scale natural electromagnetics involved in spontaneous teletransportation. You're going to land somewhere, and it's going to be up to you to figure out where you're at, using only what's in your head. Using google and maps and stuff in this preparatory simulation is only going to make you more vulnerable in the actual event.

Go fully monty on the information. Walk around and give it your best shot. You'll thank yourself later when it actually happens.
But I can interact with the locals and determine where I am pretty quickly.

This game is frustrating but the time I was off by only .069 KM in Hong Kong was cool. With Google help of course.

I think the safest thing is to assume that the locals will kill you and eat you. Even in Oklahoma.

Especially in Oklahoma.

Not to mention car license plates would not be blurred out. I think it evens out rather nicely myself.

My best score was 31,818. I didn't try to nail it within feet, I just spent enough time (few minutes) to get within a mile or two.

I haven't done that great in terms of overall scores, but I'll throw this one out there. No cheating - just recognized the place from driving by it!

I find the Russian countries to be a bitch. Lots of land mass and very little to distinguish exact locations.
