Why are your points so low?

I got through level 6 with 172,215 points.

They give you the point number, like yours, as well as a "Traveler IQ", which are the ones that we posted. I made it to level 10.

Hmm. I didn't see the IQ one...

But I think I'll give it another go, since at home I was using that silly wireless mouse that moves too quickly.

Okay.. up to level 6 again.. IQ: 92

I think I got to level 7.... IQ: 101, I think.

It'd probably be worse if I hadn't taken African geography my senior year. :p

I did pretty awful I'm afraid to say. lol

Score: 157, 495

Level: 6

IQ: 90

A few mistakes:

I got Vietnam on the wrong side of the world. lol... Really now, what were you doing fighting a war all the way over there?

I accidentally clicked my mouse in the middle of Europe while I was on my way to India to click. lol

I kept getting the Japanese cities on the wrong ends of the island.

I was pretty good with the US/Canada/Europe

South America I was totally useless at (unsurprisingly seeing as I thought that's where Vietnam was... Erm.)

Russia, and most of Asia was pretty hit or miss.

Might retake it.

In my defence it HAS been 11 years since I studied geography. :p

Nope, I'm stopping. I'm obviously too tired when I get 1,500 km away from the Battle of Trafalgar... cos I know damned well where that was. lol

Yeah, well, with some of the small countries, just getting it clicked somewhere in the country gets you some good accuracy points. They're just so small.

It's funny when I click for a city, and get the complete wrong country and still have the thing tell me "good job!" :p

Yeah, some of the islands don't even show up.

What's the closest you guys can remember getting to the real location?

I think the closest I've been was about 20km away.

I was 16km away from London. :p

Don't know how far 16km is cos we don't use those silly European things here. lol

I can't get past level 6. The main problem being South and Central America.

A few Canadian and Russian cities get placed on the opposite side of the country... lol

The thing that annoys me the most is when they put in questions that are more history than geography. like, I just got the Battle of Gettysburg about 2,000 km off... I've never even heard of Gettysburg, and I wouldn't expect any of you to be able to place English Civil War battles things like Edgehill on a map. lol

And yeah it'd be helpful if the map was bigger... There's a whole bunch of European countries that you can't even see on that map. Plus the cursor is bigger than some of the countries so as soon as you mouseover where you want to click you can't see the country nevermind where you're clicking. :p

Hah, true. :p

Yeah, it should be bigger, I agree.

I would get massive points just for getting the right country/area for a city, for tiny countries. :p
