Ryan’s GoogleEarthing World Tour Update

December 6th, 2005 Brad Posted in .Administrative 22 Comments »

It seems that the mad solution rush is slowing down a bit . . . but almost 2/3rds have been solved, so now is where it gets interesting. There are some real challenges in there, but also some I consider a tad easy. The leaderboard:

Adriaan - 18
Alan - 15
Rogier - 12
Michael Johnson - 2

I think it will come down to any of the top three, probably the one who has the fewest work obligations during the next week :).

Ryan’s GoogleEarthing World Tour

December 1st, 2005 Brad Posted in .Administrative 3 Comments »

Coming this weekend!

Watch the site this weekend for a massive GoogleEarthing extravaganza - something we call Ryan’s GoogleEarthing World Tour. An enthusiastic user named Ryan has sent in 75 GoogleEarthing images of sites from his recent World Tour.

We’re going to post all 75 puzzles at once, and following our normal rules, whoever posts the correct answer in the comments for each puzzle will win that puzzle. The winner of the Grand Prize will be the person who wins the most number of individual puzzles.

And to really increase the stakes, Ryan is offering a real cash prize - something like US$150, paid directly to your Paypal account. Ryan has posted no bond or any such fancy thing, so we’re going to have to hope he’s good for it. His choice of email fonts seems trustworthy, so I’m guessing everything will be fine.

The game will last until all 75 of Ryan’s GoogleEarthing images are solved. This games could last two days, or two months.

Remember - to receive credit for a puzzle, you must enter the answer in the Comments for that puzzle.
