Sup dudes,

Anyone ever mess about with Geoguessr?.

I figure since probably a decent part of the userbase here has traveled or gone on some neat road trips people here would do pretty well at it. I find it funny how addicting this pretty simple game is.

If you don't know, basically it puts you at a random location of google street view and your goal is to try and guess as close as possible on a map where you are. Some people put their own little rules into play about how far you can move around on street view (if at all) and if you're allowed to google any roadsigns or other things you can see from where you are.



I believe this is a current depiction of their street view coverage to give you an idea of where it could put you. I'd note that the Maldives is also covered but hard to see on that map.

Once in awhile you get dropped in some pretty ridiculous spots, including occasionally inside buildings.

Anyways, been grinding a mega geoguessr session and figured I'd share in case it would interest anyone.

it just depends on what rules you set for yourself...i've gotten 15k+ a few times but each of those times i've moved around at least a minute or two looking around to see more of the area, looking for the language on road signs, etc. (esp on a couple of the ones that are just a road with a bunch of trees that could grow on like 4 different continents, i can't imagine guessing those without moving around some).

or you can just explore until you see street names/buildings/restaurants/etc. and google them obv but that kind of defeats the purpose

The second one I did was a place that's about an hour and a half drive from where I live. Crazy huh.

I was like "I know this stretch of highway!" hah

i got something around 23500. had a few 4997 (1 kim away i believe) 4995s and one i was a few hundred km off. the more time you put into it looking around, the closer you can get.

I got 9271 on my first try. I'll play this a lot after I finish my school quarter on Friday.

I totally fucked up on my first guess. I picked a place that looked similar to an old style of South America, similar to the countryside of Peru, but it was actually Romania.

Anyway, good find.
