    Talking Geography Game/Quiz!!!

    Go here and take the geography quiz. Then post your score, level, and IQ.

    I got 130 IQ with 58,000 score in level 12, the last one, only 2,000 points from the 60,000 required to win.



    Enjoy!

    Aemilius, normal people do not feel immediately attracted to quizzes the way you are. The title should say Geography game, since it's actually kinda like a game. I tend to visualize "quizzes" in the form of questions.

    Now to everyone else. You should really try the game. It's actually fun, you need to point out as close as possible, in a map, the locations of several famous, and not so famous, cities and places around the world.

    I got a lousy 101 traveler's IQ. Africa killed me.

    I got 49115 on level 10

    114 IQ.

    Although, the test is really how well do you know your countries + knowledge of the cities of canada, russia, china, brazil, usa, argentia and australia. It's pretty easy to pinpoint the capital of sri lanka.

    Things that killed me in the last round were the pacific islands...and mixing up new guinea and equitorial guinea.

    407,507 was the score.

    Ouch. Yeah, that is almost exactly on the other side of the world. Pacific also killed me, but Papua New Guinea is still South-east Asia by my reckoning. It is right east of Indonesia.

    I am going to beat this game too. I came short of mere 2,000 points on my first try. I can get 60,000. Just not today, as I have to go to sleep now. 23:00 here, almost.




    EDIT: Wait a sec. I had a higher score than you, Jolt, but I did not finish level 12. Something is not right. I finished with the first two numbers in the score being 58. You have 57. How is that possible? Follow my link I posted and take it again. It seems that a while ago you played a different version. Otherwise how can the discrepancy in scores be explained??

    Sure. It is pretty easy since they name the country when they name the city/place. I know every country in the world. Plus the islands are a bit intuitive. But then again, I'm an International Relations student, so its kinda my job to be geographically aware. Yeah, level 8 for me is still easy level. :P

    Congratulations again. I used to be better at Geography, but it's been like 3 years since I studied a map of Africa.

    @AP: You might have gotten a higher punctuation at the early levels, whilst he got enough at level 12 to beat the game. The points are measured per level, so it's irrelevant for level 12 what you got in previous levels.

    NOTE: Due to a quick freeze-up I clicked a thing a couple of times and ended up accidentally clicking on Australia when they were asking for Goa, that former Portuguese colony on the West Coast of India. That was level 11. Had it not been for the freeze-up, my score would have been higher.


    BTW, the screenie was taken with Aviary. Try it. Pretty useful, you can select what you take a picture among other things.

    I lost a huge amount of points clicking the "Next" button, though. It was winding down, and as I clicked it went away, meaning that I had chosen the Southern Atlantic to be the capital of Micronesia....

    Apparently Myrtle Beach isn't in California.

    Anyway, I flopped on Level 12, but I'm particularly proud of this little gem from earlier in the game:
    "I'm going to die anyway, and therefore have nothing more to do except deliberately annoy Lemur." -Orb, in the chat
    "Lemur. Even if he's innocent, he's a pain; so kill him." -Ignoramus
    "I'm going to need to collect all of the rants about the guilty lemur, and put them in a pretty box with ponies and pink bows. Then I'm going to sprinkle sparkly magic dust on the box, and kiss it." -Lemur

    Do you hate Drug Cartels? Do You believe that the Drug War is basically a failure? Do you think that if we Legalized the Cannabis market, that use rates would drop, we could put age limits on cannabis, tax it, and other wise regulate it? Join The ORG Marijuana Policy Project!

    In American politics, similar to British politics, we have a choice between being shot in our left testicle or the right testicle. Both parties advocate pissing on the little guys, only in different ways and to a different little guy.
