GEOGUESSR asks players to guess the locations of Google Street View pictures using visual clues. Each game features five random pictures/locations, about which the player guesses by putting a pin on a map. After each guess, the player finds out how close he or she got to the real location; the points are based on distance to the location. When the game's over, the player can send the same five images to a friend and compare scores.
