Nice! I love geography games.
I got 1428 for the USA (some difficulties with cities in the middle of the country) and 541  Smile/happy/getting dizzy for Germany. I really messed up with Hitzacken, had no idea where that was so just clicked right in the middle...

OYRJA, that line tells you how far you are from the place you should have clicked on. The shorter the line, the better you clicked!

I really screwed up with Hitzacker in Germany and confused the geographical positions of Washington, DC with Baltimore's...

803 km for the USA:

1352 km for Germany,but it's not fare to ask where places like Hitzacker are!!!


Also mind that the scale is different on the US and Germany maps, thus the same distance covered by your mouse translates to more kms on the US map!

I had not the smallest clue where Hitzacker is as well, I hadn't even heard about it. Lucky me at least clicked somewhere in the north, so I got 527 for Germany and exactly 1111 for the USA  Big grin

I looked Hitzacker up and it has a whopping 7000 inhabitants...

Don´t worry, OYRJA, I´m sure I wouldn´t do much better if you would present me a map of Denmark...

I used to have a geography game on my Commodore 64 (!) with this little helicopter, where you had to fly over Europe or the entire world towards the destinations given. You got points while the clock was ticking, and the places got smaller each higher level. I learned a lot about the world with that game.

Here´s a question to all: I lived in a village called Wolphaartsdijk for ten years. Where is it located?  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

>>>Hey Daniel, we´d love to hear about your experiences in Hitzacker!

Ya right, like there are any experiences to make in that kind of village Big grin  Wink/being sarcastic

Seriously, though, Hitzacker became quite famous because of a nearby storage site for nuclear waste. There have been ferocious protests for decades - whenever another couple of containers are shipped there, the whole region plays civil war. So it wasn´t too unfair asking that question, Hitzacker goes through the (German) media once in a while  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
