This rocks! Thanks Sawsee and JDH! Great geography quiz and the timer is wicked fast!!!

Sawsee said...

All the credit goes to JDH!

The quickly dropping time is gets me rattled! I guess rattled is better than addled!

Sawsee said...

hhmmmm...."is gets me rattled". I guess I got addled after all (I'm still happy though)!

I've made it to level 10 a couple of times, but some lucky guesses and a few super accurate ones compensated for not having a blasted clue on many!!! Honestly, I have never heard of some of these countries! It makes me want to sleep with a map glued to my head, praying that osmosis is an appropriate method of learning. And, believe me Sawsee, that timer has me addled as well!!!!

I just love when it says "you know this is earth, right?"...snarky monkey!

Sawsee said...

"snarky monkey"! lol!

I think jdh will be, and I know I am, in awe that you got to level 10! What kind of glue did you use to stick the map on your head? I tried using woodglue, but that only made me a knothead!

Wow! Even when I know where the city is, I still tend to pinpoint over 100 miles away!

I only managed to get to level 8 (barely) and missed some of the questions by an embarassingly wide margin.

I did get within 15 kilometers of ONE landmark, but only managed to get within 100 KM of a handful.

Fun, but alarming to learn how much geography I don't know.

Level 10 and Level 8, dang. Good job. You geography nerds ruin the curve for the rest of us who are geographically challenged.

I only wish the display was bigger on that map.

I agree JDH. A bigger map would be better. I keep missing certain spots because at the small size I can't see much difference between country shapes...

Plus, Chile is SO thin and Ireland is so small it's almost impossible to get the crosshairs on land!

I actually hit level 10 but was then DESTROYED. I only got within 1000 KM of a target ONCE in the whole round. Missed a couple by more than 10000 KM!

Hi all!

Yes, a bigger map would be much easier! I had a few within 30 km but mostly were much further away...like on wrong continents!
