What's your traveler IQ

Mine was 104 on the first try. Would have been higher but I had some difficulty with some of the African capitals.

I tried this one before - it is fun, but I got a little frustrated because map is so small that it is really hard to place the flag accurately. With small countries, I had a hard time getting the flag within the borders of the country - LOL.

That was fun but it made me feel dumb. Scored 111 and didn't make it past the 10th level. Maybe I'll get an atlas and try again sometime. The world has changed since I last studied.

I hit a 99 but I agree w/J Correa, + East Timor killed me. The map does need to be bigger. On the middle Eastern ones, how close could you be ?

Tenth level and a score of 100 here. Totally frustrated by the teensy size of the map on my laptop screen, I was hundreds of km off on places that I definitely knew!

This is the same or very near as on Trip Advisor - there I've got a score of 125.

114, I got as high as level 10. I was doing good until I put one county on the wrong side of Africa in the last round.

112 on second try - I found it hard to get any closer than 50 km to places that I knew exactly. It's also hard to click on Pacific islands that are not visible on the map - even the general vicinity is bound to be hundreds of kilometers off.

18202, here. Not too bad but I agree, the map needs to be larger.

I usually get to Level 10 - but then those South American central African countries get me!

112, but the one that got me was Turkmenistan - I knew where it was but spent too long trying to focus on it exactly and was timed out. I would have been better off just clicking on the general area [as I did with reasonable success in West Africa!]

106 on tripadvisor. After that, I downloaded a map of Africa and have been studying it this week. I do great on Europe, Carib, USA, Canada but man, Africa sinks me every time on level 10!

For those who want more practice identifying countries while being timed, try National Geographic's Geospy website. My 7th grader had to identify all 53 African countries in 3 minutes. I did it with him and got up to 51 after a week of trying. He got all 53.

I agree that that map on travelpod is too small, and my mouse-clicking accuracy leaves something to be desired, also. Level 10, 111

118.

I probably ruined my score by one timeout and a few completely wrong guesses.
