Fun game. First round had 17354 but did much better the second time with 24345. I have not been to any of those cities.

I actually did better on the parts NOT showing the country boundaries. I think it was because I was more aware of the particular cities during that phase of the round. Some of the cities in my first round (only round so far) I had honestly never heard of. I couldn't even tell you what country a couple of the cities were in. Total guesses. My score was 20,526. Guess I need to go back to K-12 geography classes. I wonder if they still publish geography books. They can not possibly be current for very long these days.

Fun game. I have been working on it for a couple days and can regularly score 28500 to 29500. My best so far is 29766. First time I tried it I only got 24 thousand and something. I needed this lessen in European geography.

24690. Fun game, thanks. The mileage variants from some of my more feeble guesses provided a startling reminder of just how small some European countries are compared to the US.

Missed your destination by 4 countries? No problem, it's only 84 miles away!
