Where am I? 2.0
« on: May 18, 2007, 06:48:27 pm »
A new game from Oviraptor! Now with updated rules!

In this game, I will post a picture from somewhere on Earth. This picture can be anywhere, from any angle. Everyone will get one guess at where it is (either by posting in the thread, or by sending me a PM), and whoever guesses the closest, wins. Because of this, you need not get the location right, just as long as no one else is any closer than you are. You may use whatever resources you think will hep to try and figure out where it is. I will leave it up for at least two days, so keep checking back. I will also keep track of the winner of each round.

If you win by being the closest, you get 1 point. If you get the location correct, you get 2 points. In the event of a tie, every winner gets the full point(s) earned.

After each picture I will post a bonus question. The question may be an additional photo, or something geography related. Answering this question correctly will earn you 1 point. If no one gets it right by the next round, the question is carried through each round until someone gets it right. Every new round a bonus question goes unanswered, it will go up by 1 point. Ties are handled in the same manner as regular points.

You only get one guess for each (WAI and Bonus) every round.

Think you're ready?

Looks too nice to be New Jersey...

But that's all I can think of.

[edited out]

Actually Ovi, isn't it possible that someone could cheat by checking someone else's answer, verifying it, and then simply copying it as if they had that answer too?
I'm PMing you my response instead. That honor system stuff is useless on a forum filled with such scum.

Obviously I was joking. I love you all sexually.
Now beat it.

Yes, that is true, but the picture won't alway be from Google Maps.

Well, as someone who is terrible at geography (even my mind-map of the local area is often totally wrong), Google maps is my best shot this time around; I assume other folks would try the same thing.

I never win anything, but I know I'm right this time.
Give me the points now so I feel better about my life; this is very important for my self-esteem.

Just so you guys know, you can give your answers by posting or by PM. It doesn't matter which as long as I get it.

I believe that is a very detailed close-up of my left cheek. I win.
No way dude, you're trolling me.

Well I want to say England. The back of the bus is English and I've never seen the bicycling sign on the road here in the US. Maybe Scotland...
