    Oh I could stay on that site all day trying to beat it. I'm trying to avoid the temptation. Need to study a world map first - My geog. knowledge is pathetic outside Europe and the USA.

    made it to 7 with 215,207 points, but that was it. The map is too tiny to be fast enough, sometimes the target thingy covered more than the whole country, like on Haiti. Fun though!

    Level 9. Woo hoo!

    I like how they randomize the places so it's a different game every time.

    Harder on a laptop, I made it to level 8. Should be easier with a mouse.

    I agree, the tiny map makes it difficult to pinpoint even very familiar places, however, I got to within 20 kms of Fenway Park so maybe it's not all that bad. I had no clue where the Cocoro Islands are. I think that was my worst guess at about 8,000 kms off-target.

    Congrats, meadowmufn on being our resident geography geek...so far! Who can beat meadowmufn?

    Fun game! Made it to level 10, but needed another 10,000 points to advance to level 11.

    Yes, much easier with a mouse!

    Made it to level 10 that time. I have never heard of a couple of places, over 10,000 miles away on a couple.

    This is Earth. You know that right?

    Geesh what encouraging words.

    Level 4 and my mouse freezes up. I can see an addiction problem coming on.

    Dang I got nailed on Level 11.

    Final Score: 450,165

    I have always been a geography nut but I got stuck with 3 Russian cities in level 11. I always picked the wrong side of the country...those 10000 miles hurt me LOL

    Yay! I completed level 10 with around 370,000 points. I'll tell you what though, this isn't just a game it's also a geography lesson. I don't know what's worse, finding obscure islands on that map or pinning African countries which is definitely my biggest weakness in this game.

    Hint, if you don't know an answer just put the pin in any old place but do it FAST! Speed counts big-time.

    I hate level 11. 458,845 though this time.

    Guinea and Papua New Guinea did me in. One is in Africa, the other just above Australia. Helps to not get those two confused LOL

    Tip for anyone trying to still get past level 1 - look at a world map online. Got me through level 5 - still going for level 6. *sigh*
