A friend of the blog recently turned us on to this amazing new game app called “Geoguessr”, and if you have any interest in geography or just like seeing different streetviews from around the world, this is the site for you:
You are basically dropped somewhere in the world and have to figure out where that somewhere is actually located. You rack up points based on how close you actually are – the closer the distance between your guess and the actual location, the higher you score. Here’s a hint from some of us that have been obsessing over the past few days with this game: context clues are key (road signs, local geography, even something as simple as the language or text used…depending on how much of a polyglot you are. This is ridiculously fun.
