I'm addicted. My first game was on the world map and I got a score of 10885. Share your scores (and strategies)!

edit: game 2: 17457. My eyes are crossing. I got one in rural Australia that took me forever to find clues.

edit 2: don't do the US version unless you hate yourself. 19141, against my better judgment.

fourth: 30 miles outside of Republic, Washington, US
fifth: Grimsby, England

I narrowed down one location to Minnesota earlier thanks to an Al Franken yard sign. I also only figured out that one location that looked like Nebraska or something but was actually in Hawaii because of a road sign with city names that were not from the Midwest! This is about where it was. I also encountered this in Romania:

My latest: 16218 because even though I got 2 within a few miles (one at 1.2 miles away!) I mistook Spain for Mexico :$

And another, this time the US: 17482. I got one 1.3 yards from the right spot!

Ooh, I haven't played in forever.

1. It showed me the name of a resort in Crete. Got within a kilometer or two.
2. There was some graffiti, and I googled the tag and got a Polish flickr account based in Krakow. Got within a kilometer or two again.
3. Cornfield. After 5 minutes of exploring, still no clues besides an American flag on a barn. I guessed Kansas, and it turned out to be central Illinois.
4. Remote mountain road. Plants looked maybe subtropical? It seemed like the car was driving on the other side of the road, so I guessed somewhere in Kyushu, and it was Burma. :/ Way off.
5. Rural Japan. It put me right in front of a street sign, so I got within 20km.

18,573 total.

Round 2.

1. Right in front of a sign in my hosted sister's city! Shizuoka.
2. Rural Alberta. Found a signed intersection, and got less than a mile away!
3. Mistook a field in Colombia for Spain. Oops.
4. 17km off. Small town in southern France. It put me right in front of the tourism office. haha
5. UGH ANOTHER EMPTY FIELD. Called it Kansas when it was apparently France. Oops again.

I should totally be sleeping, but this stupid thing is so addictive and kind of awesome actually.

24519 points.
All English-speaking countries this time, which was kind of boring.

One in the UK, near... Galashiels?
Two in Australia (one sort of near Moore [had to travel a long way to get to Moore], one not far from...Blackbutt?
Two in the US, one in Anna, Illinois (I was 124 yards away on that one) and one in Jacksonville, Florida.

I just got 24,959 on a world map that included Japan, Taiwan, Brazil, Australia, and Russia. Most were rural, and the only 2 I lost points on were Taiwain (with a very lucky guess) and Brazil. *proud*

Oh man, I just got lucky. I ended up near enough to signs to figure out my location pretty closely without even going far. I got 24,996 with:
New Iberia, Lousiana
Te Kuiti, New Zealand
just outside of Radville, Saskatchewan, Canada (home of some player for the Washington Capitals)
near Rautavaara, Finland
Batemans Bay, New South Wales, Australia
