Great way to test your knowledge of the world!

Post by Trixie Belle »

This is a great (and addictive) game that tests your knowledge of places of the world, or you can play just the US or different parts of the world it's up to you!

Wow, what a blast!

I was doing very well, except my mouse isn't as responsive as it should be, so I lost some points. Time to clean out the cat hair again!

Thanks for the link. It's a great game.

I got to 440,560 points, and I had a traveller IQ of 120, thats a fun game. I can't get it to be a widget on my mac though, shame.

Widget's are the little fun programs like an interactive periodic table, or a ski report ticker tape, or a world clock or things like that that go on your mac's desktop, you don't get them on PCs unfortunatly. If you know someone with a mac they will show you. I think Window's Vista might have them now as well.

Hah! 109,112 and they even gave me a traveller IQ of 124 for that one.

We're both way off good and I know I'm only going to annoy myself if I try a second time.

That's hard - 376,995 points = IQ 112

I'd like to try it on a bigger map that I could see properly :wah:

ETA - Level ten, I thought there were meant to be twelve levels. I must have dropped out early - is it timer of accuracy?

I use the Opera browser on my PC, and Opera has hundreds of widgets.

Been using it for about a year, on a friend's recommendation. Far better than Explorer, and I prefer it to the much lauded Firefox.
