This is fun. Global.com and you guess the country and it tells you how many miles and you guess till you get it.

Well google global game and find it that way. It’s like wordless with countries. And it’s limited to one a day. And to ruin today’s for you it’s Venezuela. I started with Ireland and got it in 4 guesses. Start tomorrow.

That was fun once I figured out what was going on. Got it in 11. So there is room for improvement.

It was today that I learned the names of the countries on the continent of the answer appear to be mapped upside down in my brain because boy did I go through almost every single one first!

We played it a lot a while back, along with all the other -dle games.

Worldle is similar but gives you the shape of the country as a clue at the start.

Thanks seebs. I was telling my daughters about this thread and showed it to them because they told me about the game today — and they said I was being a bitch for spoiling the country for today. I’m sorry about that. And now they are questioning who this seebs person is and when I tried to explain my internet life and history they told me I should not have access to the web at all. Lol

Thanks for this :-)

Been playing Worldle for ages and my geography is getting better. If you play the bonus rounds, it really helps as you get to guess a lot more countries in the surrounding countries round. I will usually fail that one and then look up the area to see what is there. Doing that day after day and I'm slowly getting better at what countries are where. I knew nearly nothing about Africa before playing worldle daily :eek:

I'll add this one to the daily list of worldle, wordle, sudockle and of course Canuckle :canada:

Well, I've actually been there. But that didn't help me much in this game. It did help some tryin to figure out what countries you may not have heard of.

I have to look at a map - I admit there are large swaths of the world where I don't know which countries are adjacent to which and can't recall the names of a lot of them. It's one of the reasons I don't post my score, because I can only treat this as education for me, and not a competition.

I post my scores for a lot of games. They're all educational, and I have a record around the net of any progress that I manage along the way.
I also have to look at the map a lot. Especially with this game. All you get for a clue is how far off your guess is, hopefully after a couple of WAGs I can hope to triangulate a bit
