Location, Location, Location on Street View
In real estate the old cliché claims that in selling a property it is all about 'location, location, location'. This new Google Maps game certainly seems to prove that this is one cliché with more than a grain of truth.
UsvsTh3m are getting very good at creating fun games using Google Maps Street View. Last week they brought us the Locate the London Location game, which asks you to guess which borough or neighbourhood you are in based on a random Street View. This week they have released a guess the cost of the house game.
How much is that House? presents the player with a series of Street Views of UK homes. The object of the game is to guess how much the house sold for, purely based on what the property looks like in the Street View and where it is located. Here's a little clue - if the property is in the south of the UK add a few tens of thousands to your initial guess and, if the house is the north, drop a few thousand from your guess.
