HOW WELL DO YOU KNOW YOUR WORLD?

If you're a world traveller, good at geography or just want to know how bad you are ... have a go at this game. There are 12 levels and you're scored for speed and accuracy when placing the marker. I'd have thought Andy and Barry (amongst others) would be good at this (I'm hopeless - only level 5 first try)!

Also got to Level 5 before it kicked me out. Fun game! Will try it again soon.

Level 6 this time around. Noticed they put comments after each point - one of mine was "You do know this is earth, right!" Oops!

During my poor attempt at Level 5, I saw that very message several times. Alas!

To try a second time I had to 'get this widget'. This might be a better link

My 14-year-old daughter just came home from school and tried the game. She reached Level 6 on her first attempt. Way to go, Lily!

Just what I need, another addiction! This is a great game. I emailed it to all my buddies. I'm too embarrassed to reveal my top level at this time, maybe later!

I got through level 5. I'm quite tickled at getting that far as I am geographically challenged. It doesn't help that everything I learned in high school geography is now obsolete.

You can't, Nelly, Just poke a spot in the water somewhere off the SW tip of India and hope.

That's what I thought. I agree with Smokie. Nearest I got to Manchester which is only about 30 miles away from me is 38 km!

Here's a spin off from that, which I thought might suit SBLV and Achad especially! Gives you a photo of a monument or something - you then have to pinpoint it on the world map!

Thanks Karen. Was strolling through level 8 and got an automatic software update message that covered the map and got timed out! Grrr!

Ooh! Fun!
My 8 year old nephew got a globe for Christmas that you could play this game on, as well as others. He was much more interested in his new computer games but I couldn't stop playing with it.

Thanks for the post!

I was about 50 points shy of being allowed to go on to level 9 by the way. The Maldives did me in as well.

Excuses Andy!

Agree with you Claire - if it were just a little bit bigger ...... and the 'sight' marker didn't obscure half of England ...!

BTW - anyone tried the flags one? I struggled on the easy ones. Guess that's one for our Trivia queen!

'Tis fun though. Glad you're enjoying.

Crud! Gotta work on my African Capitals. Got to Level 10, but Dr. Livingston couldn't help me out of the jungle.

I have a solution for you who are having problems with Africa. I found a site called Trivia Plaza that you can challenge yourself, complete with capitals, outlines of countries, monuments and landmarks. They haven't done anything to the site in years - it just keeps plodding along but it's great for learning about SA and Africa.

Level 3 first try. I suck. I did get within 29 km of Buckingham Palace though. Not too bad there.

this is fun to play, but i agree with many of you; the map is too small.

these were my results:

"You rock! All bow down to the master.

Your Final score: 257,312

Your Final level: 8

Your Traveler IQ: 100"

New fave. While ago I was distracted by the cat knocking over something. Didn't pause, of course. Came back to missing by 99999 km, and it said "Bueller? Bueller?" LOL!

I can do without their insulting comments when you are a nano second too slow in responding or you get the wrong answer..."are you on this earth?" or some other assinine comment. Excuse me, gotta' go play again.
