New Geography Game Obsession

BBC has a new geo-guessing game:

http://www.bbc.com/travel/feature/20...out?OCID=twtvl

I am obsessed with it. I played like four rounds already. My highest score is 10,885. What's yours?

I played 3 times; best score = 14,492

I cheated, though; zooming in on signs that were visible and googling the approximate location when available.

Re: New Geography Game Obsession

1st time: 8727

I was surprised how close I was considering how quickly I was doing it. Except the fourth one where I picked Australia and it was Brazil.

Re: New Geography Game Obsession

BBC America is available everywhere except the US, apparently. But apparently if you plug the address in on Google Translate, you'll be able to access the site.

Re: New Geography Game Obsession

12,835. Road signs, housing types, vehicle variety, flora (rough guess for latitude) and topography.

Re: New Geography Game Obsession

You have to use the road signs. Some of these farmland scenes can't help you at all.
