570,027. Got past 11, got 50,990 on 12 but needed 60,000 to finish. Worst miss was on some Norwegian island that I figured was somewhere up in the Arctic Sea and turned out to be in the South Atlantic, 13,029 km away. Have managed to hit a few places within single digits but never right on the dot.

Same here. And the closest I got to any place was Myrtle Beach; I seemed to be able to locate that easier than the Golden Gate Bridge.

443,866; made it to Level 11. That's about enough for now. Russia's too big to be guessing random locations.

499,014 on the first try. I'll give this another shot later. Is there any way to embiggen the map to be more accurate with your guess?

Don't know about that. But I would guess that you'd be the best FWer at this.

I'm pretty good at anything that could ever be considered as a potential target. I'm not so good at Australia. Stupid ally.

I also found doing a lot of Sporcle quizzes has helped.

On my fourth try I got 570,684, but I couldn't finish Round 12. I only got ~42,000 and you need 60,000 points to continue. Australia continues to kick my ass. Also, I had never even heard of Mayotte before today.

Russia and Pacific Islands are where I tend to lose most points. Got within 2km of Baghdad.

Got to level 11 on first try, have made it to level 11 every time I attempted it bar one, but cannot fucking get to level 12. Easter Islands was my longest miss: I put it a lot closer to Australia in the South Pacific than to South America, and it was quite the distance from its proper position. My problem is the impossible tininess of the map. At least I blame it on size.
