Yes I was less than a tenth of a mile on one.  Funny thing is when I saw the picture I knew where it was.  I spent a few weeks working in Western CO and knew the town well.  Nucla, CO

That's kinda fun. My first try resulted in a dismal 5000+/- point score. My second was a bit better at 15555. Ended up getting within .317km from one of the locations.

 

Of course that low distance was only because i was able to track down the location using GE. I'd still be in the low score if i hadn't cheated,,,lol.

I played this a few times last night and got really lucky so that I was able to pinpoint 3 out of 5 and ended up with a score over 23000.  If I didn't have Google to help I wouldn't have done near as well but I think its allowed. Fun game.

When I see a sign written in Russian I just pick Ukraine.

Seems fitting considering current events over there.

My first guess was on the wrong continent!

I have gotten to within .003km a couple of times on my guesses. Was wondering if we could get any closer and finally found out today.

 

Your guess was 0 km from the correct location and gave 6479 points.

 

This one was located right on top of a railroad crossing which made it easier to pinpoint.

Looks like you don't get anymore points for getting real close but good to know.

Was up til after 2:00am trying to figure out one of the locations on GE. For you that don't realize it, there is an Illinois River in Arkansas. :laugh:

 

Now, who was it that brought this website to our attention?  Oh yeah,,,, Curse you SockPuppet!   :teasing:

It seems every time I play all I get is some rural farmland.  

I have to go quite a distance down the road to get even a glimmer of any kind of writing or signs, in which to base my guess.

 

For fun, I chose the north pole each time and still got ~5000 points.

Good tip...I think I'll try that next time. I was going right along, figuring everything out and then....rural road with a bunch of birch trees. Ugh.
