My IQ is 139 (647 532 pts), but the REAL master at this is Decebal. He's a 140! Shocked What a machine...

That's amazing Mix. Are you sure it's only IQ of 139 though? Because if you get over 650 000 (which I almost did) you go from 139 to 140. And you got 842 000! Surely that's like IQ 160?!

EDIT: Maybe the travelpod traveler IQ quiz on facebook is different to the one Panther linked to? If so, ignore me Smile

That's the thing xristar - I don't think we are! The score I posted was from my efforts on the facebook version of traveler IQ. I am guessing it is different to the traveler IQ posted by Panther, because the highest score ever recorded on FB is just over 700 000 - making you (with 842 000) the All Powerful God of Traveler IQ LOL

I didn't score 842,000. I scored 386,000. It seems to me rather impossible that a game which goes to level 10/12 with 386,000 points reaches up to 842,000.

How the #$%
Up until level 10 you gain an average of 30-40,000. That can't be correct. Perhaps if you complete the game you get some bonus, or the last quastion are really worth a lot of point.
*For the record I tried again (second time), and now I achieved a 410,000. I guess if I keep playing i 'll reach Mixcoatl in a few months...*

I did the Latin America one? Perhaps there is a difference between different areas?

In any case I had at least a dozen very close (<20 km) hits, and only one that was completely off (I thought a city I've never heard of was in Venezuela instead of Brazil).

I did the default one - World Quiz - I think xristar did that one as well.

That explains it then, Mix. Some of them, like the Asia and Latin America ones, can go up to 900 000 points or so. It varies between quiz regions.

Yes I empathise. And sometimes it clicks when you're in the process of moving the pointer to the location...gr.
