You have five chances (rounds) to guess where you are. Once you have decided what is the possible location, you’ll have to drop a pin on the map you have next to the street view.The closer you get to the actual location, the more your score will increase (it can be anywhere between 0 and 6500 points) . If you guess wrong five times, the game will end. It’s not always hard to guess where you are but sometimes you might need to struggle a bit.
Obviously, it’s much easier if you’re given an image from a city and not a barren field as I was given first time (see the picture above). My second guess was much better as I was sent to a town in Russia. How did I guess that I was in Russia? I managed to find some clues: first I recognised the cyrillic script, but as this was not enough for guessing the country, I was lucky to find the colours of the Russian flag at a petrol station so even if I didn’t guess the town at least it helped me to guess the country so I was happy to be close to the destination.
And... by the third round, I guessed the location and I got 6385 points out of 6500! The problem was that even though I dropped the pin on the name of the location, Alaska is so big that apparently I was still 1125 km away (in fact, afterwards I realised that I didn’t zoom in enough). You can see below how I managed to find the name of the location.
It’s a great game, and even though is not perfect yet and could be more complex (I would have liked to have more than one chance to guess a location) it’s an addictive game, worth spending some time on.Give it a go and let us know how much you’ve scored and which locations caught your eye!
