Explordle

In the amusing geography game Explordle, you have to identify the proper locations from a YouTube video. Although the game is played with a video rather than Google Street View, in some ways it is similar to the GeoGuessr game.

The Explordle rules are very simple to understand. You are shown a video of a random area and asked to select the correct location from a list of four. After making your assumption, whether it was correct or not, you can use an interactive map to determine the precise location of the video.

Explordle is a little harder due to the Chinese language used in the answers (for non-Chinese speakers). This is not a problem if you use Chrome and have Google Translate enabled. Selecting the map icon next to each multiple-choice response in other browsers will allow you to get around any language barriers (in order to view a map of the location).

If you really can't be bothered playing in Chinese, try "City Guesser" instead. Despite being in English, the game is essentially identical.

The enjoyable guessing-location game In the game Explordle City Guesser, you must identify a specific location in a video. To start playing, just point at the location indicated on an interactive map. A seemingly random video of a location in the world is played by the game. You must pay attention to the visual cues in the clip to determine where you think the movie was shot (such as the language & words used in street signs and the design of the street furniture). After making your guess, all you have to do is click on an interactive map to start earning points for how accurately you identified the location from the video.

City Guesser, Explordle, and GeoGuessr all depend on you being able to recognize visual cues in order to figure out where the game is. Because they emphasize a sense of place and make you think about the specific qualities that define a location, all three games are enjoyable to me.

Explordle Instructions

Explordle rules are very easy to understand. You receive a video clip of someone exploring or taking a stroll through a city or famous landmark area. The goal is for the player to choose the appropriate response from a range of possibilities; each appropriate response helps the player understand the objective better.

For instance, in the Daily Adventure, try guessing the continent, the nation, and then the city. Then, similar to Wordle, you can share your results. Depending on store signs, street signs, etc., you can easily categorize some clips, but you may find it difficult with others. Playing this game will probably cost you up to an hour of your valuable time. In order to be included in the game, you can also submit your own videos. You might be able to use that to visualize some of your own travels.
