And now for a new, improved way to waste your time…If you’ve ever spent any amount of time toying around with Google Street View, GeoGuessr is sure to please.
The game plops you down in a random location on Google Street View. Look for clues by zooming in and out, and tracking across to different vantage points, and then guess where you are on the map to the right. You’re awarded points based on how close you are to the actual location pictured.
Why I’m Curious?
Yet another creative use of Google Maps…While it’s easy to dismiss games like this as nothing more than time-wasters, I could see something like a GeoGuessr serving as the crux of a social engagement for a travel/leisure brand.
