    I've spent hours on Geoguessr. Got one round down to a T because I was dumped within walking distance of a handy roadsign/identifiable shop on every go
    Great way of seeing lots of parts of the world you wouldn't otherwise see because it's not touristy.

    If it was cheating, it'd be disabled (and some parts have movement disabled on purpose!)

    First go...10480 points

    Most of the locations I got were in Mexico and one in Australia...stuff along the roadside gave me enough clues to make an educated guess...
