Fun game for map nerds and travelers WARNING ADDICTIVE

Geoguessr plops you down in a random place on Google's street view. Use the street view controls to try to figure out where you are, and enter your guess on the map. Each game gives you five locations.

My top score so far is 17,000 and change.

You have to hunt for clues to your whereabouts - street signs? What language are they in? What side of the road are people driving on? What's the vegetation look like? What about the general state of road engineering?

I can't stop playing.

Too addictive! First score was 18928. I was surprised at how close I was when I just kinda guessed at the first 3, but the last 2 I looked around more. Was .198 km off on the last one.

Might have to block this site.

I finally broke 20k but got lucky with the settings. Uh, that's the Sydney Opera House over there. And that sign for the airport at Los Cabos. And the facades of the frontier looking main street that refer to Dawson City.
