So I took a stab in the dark and figured I'd at least be close
    What a trooper! Reputation point for perseverance.
    Thanks!

    Now wait until you see just what tortured train of logic I went through to obtain my guess THIS round.

    I think it should be a rule that everyone, after the round, submits and discusses the logical basis behind their guess. I *love* seeing how chains of logic lead to (hopefully) correct conclusions. Plus it means the thread remains active during the guess period.

    Heck, I think we should have another round in which we play cooperatively. That would be awesome.

    I actually have a "Bonus" round after the 12 rounds are finished, if the thread is still active, where I will knock off half of your points if you get it right, and you guys can do it as a group effort if you want to.

    People can feel free to share their logic if they want to when the round is complete, I encourage this!

    Anyway, to avoid editing, here's my answer. DAMN is this a tough one. Who the hell could post three pictures of what is essentially 'snow' and think "Yup, that'll do nicely".

    (SPOILER)
    Getting a Canadian feel for this because of the snow. I know it snows in many places, but come on, Canada. We have members in Canada. Now, I know it does snow in America as well, but, eh. Heck, it's probably snowed in Australia one time as well. But I'm sticking with Canada, mainly because it's the obvious answer. As for where in Canada, heck I don't know the pictures don't exactly give much to go on! Looking at Google Maps, I'll just stab at... *Looks at map* New Brunswick. Don't ask me where in that, just aim for the center.


    I hope that's the worst of them. Talk about non-specific.

    Post edits are allowed Formy. I score the answer I see though, so if you get lucky enough to edit before I check then good for you. If not, I score the post I see first and your edit just becomes invalid :P.

    I saw your post though so no take backsies.

    My reasoning/guess: (SPOILER)This one is tough. I don't know if submitting old pictures was within the rules but I'm hoping not! However, that assumption makes it even tougher, because as far as I can tell from my research, nobody on the list lives in a place that would have snow around this time. The closest is probably Vivi22, though (unless Cim is Canadian? I don't think so but I'M NOT SURE), so I'm gonna go ahead and say Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada.

    shion: How do you measure when people guess countries/regions? I noticed some people said just "Provence, France" last round, which is a pretty large region. xD

    I have a few distance calculators. I use distancecalculator.com, except last round because it was being fussy so I used a few different ones. I know Provence is a large region so I just input Provence, France and used the central location that they gave me.

    Okay guys, a bit over 25 hours left to answer, if you haven't already! Trust me when I say this isn't the round you want to get the lowest score for.

    I'm trying to think of members who live in snowy environments, and I'm going out on a limb and guessing that they are old pictures. I'm probably way off, but I'm going to say (SPOILER) Oreans, Ontario, Canada

    Wait, people used old photos? What! I went into Bournemouth centre 'specifically' to take these photos.

    I do agree that outdated pictures spoil the flavor of the game! I thought they were to be relevant to the time of year. :3

    You mean the highest score, don't you?
