As my gaming clan loves to say:

Screenshot or it never happened!:P ;)

Seriously though, good job. I know I am gonna try again. One question that upset me was asking where Vancouver BC Canada is, and it said I clicked to far away. I LIVE IN VANCOUVER! :( So, a fun game, nit sure how precise it can get

I had a really good geography class in jr high school, but we didn't cover enough of those little islands. I wonder what level 11 is like??

Okay--ravs, you're a jerk. This "test" only emphasized what a geographical idiot I am. (Best score so far: 6!!!!!!!)

(But my claim to fame: I hit the Battle of Hastngs within 5 miles!! and I hit the capital of Turkey within 20 miles. Both were total shots in the dark, but I'm taking blankety-blank credit for 'em anyway!!!)

lol, I managed to get to 12 the second time I tried it, but that was at work (yeah busy day!). You just have to be really quick (you don't have to be that accurate). As Midgardsommer said, the Island ones are the ones which generally fox me.

Level 12, 625,776 points.
I put Ittoqqortoormiut (which they spell Ittoqqortoormiit, lol) on the wrong side of Greenland, which is a shame because I know where it is! I wonder if I could have kept going.

Final Level - 11
Final Score - 444,103
Traveller IQ - 119

I should have done much better than that, but I could barely see the map. Also, I need to do some more work on the location of various Pacific nations ...

I didn't do so good on my first go. I think part of it was just realizing what I was supposed to be doing.

Well, done better, but still no 12, odd though I found World Cities (HARD)/Level 7 one of the easiest levels......:?:

Hey ravs--thanks for the new addiction! (Like I needed another one, anyway!) Attached is my best to date.

PS: If only Africa would become one giant country, I could win this game!!

I just can't compete here, better stick to mapping challenges :)

And who the heck would actually know where Djibouti is!?!!?

Any of you knuckheads missed "Cape Town" or "Johannesburg" by more that 100 kms and I'll have you. I swear I'll have the lot of you!:)

I heard a series of jokes about how that city is used as a staging area for the US Military. "There's seamen in Djibouti..."

Damn I need to game with classier people.

100 km is only, what, eight pixels on that map? I hit both of them within 200, though, I think. What's embarrassing to me is that I put Syndey on the wrong end of Australia. I don't know why I thought it was on the southwestern coast.

I pointed my kids to this - figure it would be a good game for them play, as you actually end up learning locations you didn't know after a few times.

Good board game to buy for the family: 10 days in Africa. Google it and have fun playing!

BoardGameGeek.com has just about every game there is as far as a description is concerned. It often has people looking to trade or sell games for cheaper than retail as well. I highly recommend the site. :D
