To all PFers who have played "Where's That Landmark?" over the years: it's all just an elaborate exercise to prepare for this game:

Lots of fun :biggrin:. I think I got to 12,000 once, I'm *certain* folks here can beat that.

The countries I have the hardest time with are Brazil and Norway.

Once I got nothing but desert after desert. I didn't score well but I learned that whew, there are lots of deserts on this wonderful planet.

Is looking at the road signs cheating?

Well, since it's not a competition, anything goes. The rules I impose on myself: anything I can see is a clue, so sure looking at signs is OK. But no googling!

I just got one 148 km from the actual place. Somewhere in Kansas. Best I've gotten so far was just under 10k. I'm gonna keep playing that because that's fun and sort of educational. Thanks.

I feel good if I break 10K. Most of the time I don't, though.

One thing I've learned: right away, zoom out. Then spin around. You can get some good clues that way!

Funny, first time I tried all my answers were exactly NE from the real answers, just in different distances (ranging from 190 to 10k km). I got above 12k, but it was a sheer luck.

Wheeeee

Your guess was 4.527 km from the correct location and gave 6114 points.
