Just found this little game, that is pretty fun. You are given a random streetview somewhere, and you have to guess where it is. 

 

What score do you get? Here is my first attempt (10609):

Re: GeoGuessr - Google maps game

I'm not sure whether they are random, weighted to certain areas, or selected. I have got some on quite recognisable areas, others on dirt roads where you have no idea.

 

I got one on a nice island, and since you are looking at Hawaii, Bahamas, Seychelles - if you don't choose right, you are way out :smileyvery-happy:

Realised that I didn't put a link in the OP :Stupid:

It isn't hard to find, but still, rookie error.

I was going to mention the lack of a link but I didn't in case I was just missing it using my phone. I won't be able to play it on here anyway, I'll have a go later.

Apparently I have no idea what Australia looks like but I can recognise Florida to within 50 miles.
