How Well Do You Know Geography?

I realize this is the Non-Aviation forum; but this isn't really

"aviation"; this is "virtual aviation"; actually, it's more about

geography than it is about aviation. It will very quickly find out

how well you know where major cities are in Europe.

The only problem with this is......everyone will lie !

If I told you what my score was, you'd say I was lying;

If you tell us that your score is better than mine was,

you're probably lying.

I know a lot of "Europeans" will be seeing this; obviously,

anyone who lives in Europe will know where all the big cities

are at, right ? This little game will definitely find out how well

you know where places are in Europe. So click on the link and

follow the instruction. a "virtual airliner" will take off, heading for

Europe, and it will tell the destination; all you have to do is click

on the destination before the airplane gets there; the problem is,

I think it may be going "supersonic", as it gets to it's destination

VERY quickly ! Be sure to post your FIRST score only;

and don't lie!

http://www.lufthansa-vp.com/vp1/play.html

P.S. Uh Oh......I just happened to think of something.......there are a few
people around here who really fly REAL airliners to some of these places;
that's probably going to give you a big advantage; you're still welcome to
play, but I'm afraid you will be ineligible for the "Grand Prize"......(to be announced later.)

Nothing to be proud of, I assume. I read Venice and click on Rome - don't ask why, I know where Venice is for crying out loud.

Same here. I can properly locate states (or most of them), but cities would be a lot harder.

Good find Charley.

Well, I took notes of each landing, with it's miles and score.
I found round 2 perhaps the easiest, the cities in round 1, unless they are well known, tend to distract.

Round 1.

Milan - 9 miles
Belgrade - 186 miles
Cologne - 108 miles
Istanbul - 9 miles
St. Petersburg - 314 miles. (I'd have done better there if was still Leningrad maybe!)

Round 2.

Brussels - 33 miles
Lisbon - 65 miles
Marseille - 57 miles
Izmir - 58 miles (Got lucky, I knew it was Turkey the rest was a guess within the landmass of that country).
Catalina - 532 miles (I thought it was in Spain, it isn't!)

Round 3.

Katowice - 172 miles (Knew it was Poland, the rest was luck, no borders in this round).
Minsk - 80 miles (Knew the general part of the map, the rest was luck).
Ankara - 141 miles
Venice - 95 miles
Hanover - 98 miles.

Total score = 24753 points.

Not a horrible score but not too good either, I like to think I got nearer to many cities, compared to where Ryanair say they are flying to and the distance from the airport they actually land at!

I wish there was a game like this but about capital / other major cities of all countries worldwide, I've studied some faraway places way more than Europe, just find them more interesting.

Main errors: Malaga is on the spanish mainland, of course, and Tallinn is further notheast than my first click...

Fun to play, they had similar games before.

Great game! I've played many similar ones, but never with the progressive elimination of locations/borders etc.

I got 27,314 with some pretty favorable destinations for what I know about European geography. Had I gotten some of the more obscure LH destinations that probably would have dropped a bit.

The only problem with this is......everyone will lie ! If I told you what my score was, you'd say I was lying

No, some people will, not all. One can have a true interest or ease with geography, thus helping to score high. My first score was 28916.

This must be a VERY unique game! Up until now, the ONLY game I ever play on a computer is Free Cell Solataire; until about 3 years ago, I would have bet someone that I would never think of getting interested in playing solitaire; then I started noticing my wife playing free cell; at first, I told her that people who play cards with themselves, are beyond desperate for something to do! But she finally talked me into sitting down and watching; next thing I knew, I was playing it more than she was; (since then, I've completed about 3,500 games of free cell.)

In the last few years, I have become acquainted with about half a dozen M.D.s; I have a theory about doing things like playing free cell; my theory is, because it forces you to think, to "strategize", that it must be beneficial to your brain; I've asked a few doctors about this; they have ALL told me the same thing.........it's not just a "theory", it's actually a proven medical fact. Apparently, the brain, just like a muscle, will atrophy and become less and less capable if it's not used much.

So until I ran across this little Geography game, I was strictly a "one game guy"! I even asked my wife's great nephew what he thought about "grown men" playing video games; (I might mention, he's been a fighter pilot in the U.S.A.F. for about 11 years now, with the first six flying F-15s, and the last five flying the F-22A Raptor; his answer was......don't play video games with any fighter pilot, because you'll lose ! Just like that.....didn't have to think for a second; the guy's mind reminded me of a steel trap; one touch....and "snap"! I just realized..........on my profile page, clear at the very bottom, there's a picture of three pilots standing in a hangar beside a Raptor; Erik is the little dude in the middle. Come to think of it, he was stationed in Europe for about 4 years; maybe I'll email him "Airliner Geography" and see how he does with it.

I scored 26,000-something. I forget what exactly my score was, but my biggest miss was Riga. To me, it sounded like somewhere in Greece, but it was actually up around Latvia.

Considering my major in college (both bachelors and masters) was geography and that I took a course on Europe, I wish I would've scored higher...
