    TOMORROW MORNING

    I am posting up the scores, the location, and beginning round 2!

    Due to schedule, the guess time on this one is extended and you have about 23 hours left to guess if you haven't already.

    OKAY ROUND ONE IS OVER! The location was (SPOILER)Bournemouth, UK, as many of you have guessed

    Here are the scores for this round:
    *The lower the score, the better.
    *Late entrees received a 1000 point penalty.
    *If you are signed up and didn't guess this round, you receive a score equal to the lowest scoring guess +1000 points.

    (SPOILER)
    Cim - 0
    Denmark - 0
    Endless - 0
    Formalhuat - 0
    sharkythesharkdogg - 0
    The Summoner of Leviathan - 0
    Yerushalmi - 0
    Goldenboko - 77
    Vivi22 - 94
    Inferno 0+250 - 250
    Agent Proto - 3484+1000=3734

    If you missed this round you receive a score of 3734 + 1 strike


    OP will be updated with scores each round.

    Okay due to some complaints, the point penalty will be reduced to 250 points.

    Also, my apologies to Endless. I misunderstood your PM when you signed up xD

    I also propose that you only get the penalty in the first round you joined. In all other missed rounds (both for people who signed up late and people who miss around along the way) you should be equal to, not worse than, the lowest score.

    Yeah they won't get the penalty anymore, don't worry.

    But missed rounds will have the lowest score for the round to be fair to people who played.

    Damn, was mine THAT obvious. I thought most towns had a big balloon?

    Oh, also Shion, I've come across a problem, that perhaps I've overlooked and is actually sorted and fine. Basically, in Round One I, for obvious reasons, couldn't guess my own location, therefore I was exempt from that round. I'm not even on the scoreboard. Furthermore, while many guessers also posted images, some people did not and are only guessing. This runs into a situation where a few people can answer all the rounds, and everyone else can answer all the rounds bar their own one. This effectively means some people can effectively have an additional turn because they don't have the burden of missing out their own round. Am I making sense? I hope so!

    Basically, as in my case, would I score 0 points, or would there be some other arrangement? Maybe I'm not making sense.

    Round Two Answer
    Anyway, this is tough. The roads are British, as are the cars, but besides that, there's not much to go on. Knowing that there's not many members in the UK, and I've already taken my turn, I'll go with... Edinburgh, UK.

    I would think if you submitted pictures, you'd get 0 points for that round (as in, you would obviously be correct in guessing). Folks who participate in some rounds but not others should be penalized for the rounds they missed, so that someone doesn't only guess once and get 0 points and win. I dunno though.

    People who submitted images get a score of 0 basically as a reward for submitting pictures since this event wouldn't exist without them :P.

    In the interest of making things competitive, as Jiro and Yeru pointed out to me, and as I put in the rules, I will penalize you if you guess your own location correctly so you don't give it away, but you can put on a "poker face" so to speak and guess a fake location so that the people who check other peoples answers can be thrown off course.

    I have 7 guesses already . Keep em coming guys. Next round is posted up at midnight on Saturday EST.

    EDIT: And yes, Rob is correct that missed rounds result in a penalty to keep things fair for those who participate.

    Ah good good. I sort of did a poker face by saying in thread that "I've already sent in my answer to you via PM". I like that competitive idea!
