    I got through to level 9. My traveler IQ is 100...huh? Africa tripped me up. Not the big countries in Africa, the little ones.

    took it again and couldn't get to the last level and scored 112. there were more pics of places like south africa and new zealand that i'm really not familiar with

    I got to level 9. Asia and Africa tripped me up. The US one was easy until I got to nicknames. Then it got ugly.

    ^^Yeah, the nicknames for the cities/states tripped me up too.

    WTF?? I couldn't get past the fourth stage. I feel like that Miss USA Teen chick or something. Jesus. I need to get off this freaking site and get myself an Atlas for God's sake.

    congrats!
    it's great when you get good locations. i got 147 on the picture one the third time i took it, but becasue there were hardly any 'obscure' locations, i.e. no pacific islands or waterfalls i've never heard of in iceland. i was also hopped up on coffee so my clicking was extra fast.

    I kept waiting for the islands to start popping up..and only one did..and I was not that far away from it. Those damn islands are so hard because they do NOT show up on the screen at all..you just have to kind of guess where they are at in the middle of the ocean. Like Easter Island in the Pacific..I know it is about 3000km due west from central Chile..but how the hell do you guesstimate that on the tiny little map? Also I have a damn small screen and have to practically squint anyways! So glad to at least finish through level 12 with above 60,000 finally.

    *I completely suck at the pictures one and refuse to play that shitty one anymore~ LOL

    Default What's your Geography IQ?

    Traveler IQ Challenge

    I heard the founder on PRI this morning. There's 6000 levels in the game so it should keep you busy for a good long time.

    You're scored on speed and accuracy.

    Another interesting tidbit. The highest scorers come from Guinea. Guinea which has a 29% literacy rate. I looked it up.

    Guinea is located between Guinea-Bissau and Sierra Leone and is not to be confused with Papua New Guinea. The capital is Conakry. And it's on the coast, toward the south, if it comes up in the game
