Dear oh dear... good game!

My low scores tell me we live in an increasingly homogenous, globalised, world. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

as the photo is "street view" from google maps, you can spin it around to see what's around you and get a few more clues; cars on right or left, km vs miles, products on billboards. one photo landed me in front of a sign for Tecate which is a mexican beer so clicking on mexico got me pretty close.
thanks BApilotinsider!

Pretty fun, 11263 points on the first try.

Google have/had a similar game once. Used still images though instead of StreetView.

oh my god this is so addictive. I keep on getting all these Russian ones - every time I guess Moscow its like Vladivostak so I only get like 100 points. Im just dropping it in the middle.

Love this game. It's fun as a personal knowledge test.

But its also a testament to the power of the internet if you play to get the highest score possible. I played a round and using nothing but hints from the images and searching Google, managed to get every location within 0.1km, including locations in Brazil, Hungary, Texas and South Africa.

0.2 miles gets 22000 so I guess around 25000. Addictive isn't it!

With plenty of "cheating" with Google Maps I managed to get a maximum score of 32370 ... very addictive indeed ... Now back to work .. or maybe just one more go !
