You might want to try this one out at your New Year’s Eve party! Put your knowledge of the world to the test with GeoGuessr, the game that drops you somewhere in the world using Google’s Street View feature and leaves it up to you to guess the location. In the game, you must navigate the map and take in as much information as possible, utilizing your knowledge of geography, history, botany, languages, architecture, and culture to make your best guess. You can play the Classic mode solo, play with friends, or compete in Career mode. You can opt to drop anywhere in the world at random or choose from GeoGuessr’s map categories, including famous places, specific countries, popular maps, and more.
GeoGuessr requires an account to play, but signing up is free. With a free account, you can play one five-round game for free each day, while the subscription model allows more frequent playing and access to additional features. GeoGuessr is available in 10 languages and can be played in a browser or as an app available from the Apple App Store or Google Play. Check it out!
