Game: Traveler IQ Challenge

How well do you know the world you live in? Can you pinpoint on a map where various cities are? How close do you think you can guess to where they actually are?

Play Traveler IQ Challenge and find out.

I really need to replace this mouse... I can only reliably get within 500km. (Made it to level 6.)

Hi Louise!
Welcome to DC!

Since you're here, i'd like to make a suggestion to this great game of yours.
I like to play the monuments one, but i think it'd become even more educational if after the person chose the site, it'd show the name of the city where that monument is located (if there is any city).

Thanks!

great fun allright :up:

[modesty out the window] I got to level 9 or 10 and got a
"Holy Cow, you're good at this" comment :-* [/modesty out the window]

it probably helped doing a good few german language courses here with dozens of different nationalities..

I found it fun too.  I was amazed to find out 1) how well I knew approximately where everything was, and 2) how far off from the borders I thought the cities were.  The first time playing I got to level 6 and missed 7 by about 500 points.  The second time, I got to level 12 before failing.  Not too bad.  Air Force career certainly went a long way to achieving that - no doubt.  On my third attempt - Got to go do it.  Later :P

fun little game :) though i was kind of unprepared for how fast it makes you chose, and how small the map is.
[ only got to level 5, 29546 points (level6 needs 30k) on the first try... :( that's kind of bad, for how much of this stuff was crammed into my mind in school :D ]
