    GEOGRAPHY EDITION: The Guess the Country/City/Building Game

    RULES
    • 1. No more than one guess per post can be made
    • 2. Do not post twice in a row
    • 3. To the best of your ability, do not participate in Guess the City/Building rounds if you are from the same city/region
    • 4. To avoid confusion, please do not post any pictures in this thread
    • 5. Each round lasts 2 days, after which it will end and a new round begins
    • 6. A Mile High Salute is mandatory after winning a round



    INTRODUCTION

    A simple but fun game. Get the picture right and become famous like Elway. Please bear in mind each round can be approached differently.

    Guess the Building: Continent > Country > Region/State > City > Building
    Guess the City: Continent > Country > Region/State > City
    Guess the Country: Continent > Country

    OR

    take a wild guess on the building/city/country pictured*/***

    Hints: If no progress has been made after a fair amount of time, I may choose to post a hint. A total of 3 hints can be given during each round.


    Hopefully this will be educational and culturally enriching while still being fun. That's the goal anyway. Enjoy.

    • *An additional 1 point will be added if guessed in first try (no hints and/or specifics given)
    • **An additional 15 points will be added to the tally of all monthly winners and top 5s (1st gets 5, 2nd gets 4 and so forth)
      If tied, the points will be equally distributed
    • ***The Mile High Award is worth an additional 5 points and is awarded to the person who goes all in and gets the most rounds right in first try over the course of a month

    No and no.

    Remember..

    Guess the Building: Continent > Country > Region/State > City > Building
    Guess the City: Continent > Country > Region/State > City
    Guess the Country: Continent > Country

    By getting the continent right, it'll be a lot easier.
