Nice game :) but when the Flickr image is too big, the continue button gets hidden becaus eeverything comes to the bottom and we have no way to continue the game.

Your answer Philippine is wrong. (-10 points)
The right answer was Philippines.
Err, not fair.

I am trying to compile a list of all interesting Google Games here

labnol.blogspot.com/2006/08/si ...

Do you think I am missing any popular game ?

It lloks like a great way to get people to tag/label images using the power of humans instead of trying to create a computer that can recognize images.

By enrolling humans to do this for free/fun you then create a library of flickr/google maps images (in this case) that is readily searchable with labels/tags that are given an "IQ score" for correctness or in search parlance, relevance.

Amit, why didn't you intitle your post "8 ways to have fun with Google" ? :-) Trademark problems? :-P

How many levels, Philipp? I'm playing and playing... some locations appear twice (what for?).

And there is a bug, that enables you to cancel minus points :D

Ok, so I got to 1200.
Btw: The 900 picture is far too big and for the Iraq question it tells you that it is Iran, which is wrong.

> How many levels, Philipp? I'm playing and playing...

Piotr, you're not the first to have asked this... so I added the footnote on all pages:

"Play neverending quiz & memory games to train your thinking"

In other words, all games are neverending :)

Thanks guys I'll check the 900 image...
