I managed to get a town in France spot on, I saw "Auray" and assumed it must have been a place name, saw it was next to a river with fishing boats, so it couldn't have been too far from the coast and by jove I found it. The second was in Japan (at least I was able to tell the symbols apart) but I can't read Japanese, so no real clues as to where. Turns out I guessed the opposite end of Japan, it was cloudy as well, so I thought, "more likely North of Japan" and then thought I was being illogical and just guess for somewhere much further south, turns out it was Sopporo, which is way up North.
Third one was Sweden, the houses were very Nordic, Denmark was my first guess, the landscape made me think Canada, but it felt too Scandinavian, so I figured Norway or Sweden, it was next to a lake and I saw a sign. Found the town the sign was pointing to, but it was like 100 miles away. For number 4, it struck me as very Texan, but I've been tricked before (could well be Australia). Then I saw a Spar (though we only had them in the UK, but I figured it must be European at least) and then some signs that looked Dutch, but I don't think there's many places that look like a desert in the Netherlands, so South Africa was the obvious choice, couldn't find the name of the town and I put the town too close to the coast. The last one felt distinctively American, definitely somewhere hot and near water, it could be near the sea or a big lake, given, but I can't see anywhere in the US where I might have imagined it to be near the coast, seemed like it was more in the middle of a desert and that's when I spotted the Salton Sea, which seemed like a possible location, it looks like it's in the middle of a desert. Turns out I was horrible misinformed, I was looking on the completely wrong side of the US, turns out it was the coast and in North Carolina. And we Brits mock Americans for completely misunderstanding geography in the UK.
That gave me a grand total of 14,376. At least I got all of the countries right. Linky
As you can tell, I'm hooked.
I'm not playing it anymore. I saw a sign for "Hidrogas" which is in Argentina. So I stick my flag there and hit enter and it said I sat my flag in California. This game is defective. This happened three other times. I saw a sign for Barcelona, so I sat my flag in Spain and clicked enter and it said I sat in Brazil.
I think you've got it stuck in George W Bush mode.
