Weekly Time Waster - ‘GeoGuessr’

(1 Vote)

If there are any geography nerds out there, this Time Waster is for you! And if you aren’t a geography nerd, well … you’re about to become one!

“GeoGuessr” is a sweet little game that throws you on a random street somewhere in the world and you have to figure out where you are. That’s right, it’s the equivalent of waking up one day, not knowing where you are and embarking on a quest to find where you’ve somehow ended up!

“GeoGuessr” basically uses Google Maps Street View and lets you move up and down roads and explore where you are. You need to utilize all the information within view to guess your location. Street signs, languages, flags, major landmarks – they are your best friends in “GeoGuesser.”

The game sometimes throws you onto tiny back roads and into back-alley towns across the world. The addictive part comes when you find those small clues that give you an idea of where you might be. You might see Spanish writing on a sign! This is great news, as you’ve now narrowed down where you might be, but that is only one piece of the puzzle. You simply guess what country you are in based on the clues you’ve found; the game will tell you whether you are right or wrong.

“GeoGuessr” is great, because you not only get to embark on all of these adventures of discovery, but you get to learn a lot about parts of the world that you otherwise might not give a second thought. It gives you an appreciation for the many towns and landmarks all throughout the world, whether big or small.

“GeoGuessr” is free to download on the Android and IOS stores.
