21,508. I kept missing cities with ridiculous points like 17 miles or 48 miles away...geesh. And I've traveled all over the area for a couple years.

Good 'game'. I played twice, near 22,300 each time. Sure don't know where a lot of those towns are. Some I got really close though (lucky?) in the last round without reference points.

I bet it would be hard even with US cities w/o state lines in there.

I did pretty well, finding almost every country for the destination city correctly. Once the city markers and country boundaries were erased, I really had to wing it.
I'm waiting for the email for the score. It disappeared quickly on me before I could note what it was.
