@Challengers: this is the correct map to play the challenge qualifications until Friday 10h00! Good luck!

Is there an overall leaderboard that you can view? I know you can see your own rank, and others if you click on their page, but it seems broken? E.g. people sharing ranks.

As for speed v precision, if your average score mattered then they'd be an argument for precision but because only your best score matters then you may as well go for speed, because eventually you'll end up being both quick and precise through good fortune.

I have just completed 12 rounds of the game but not scoring just writing down the place names looking for a pattern.For the last 5 rounds I was pointing and clicking over the sea at what would be Jutland and purposely avoiding land.
Interestingly Whilst going through the last five rounds there were increasingly less of the N.Ireland and north Scotland and even Welsh.
This is something that the random place generator must pick up on?
As for grouping there was a distinct North west England and Home Counties favouring?
I've know idea what it all means but if it helps get back on the leader board all well and good.
I think i'm getting worse actually?

Now then Weezer you old rapscallion, you little Huyton-on-Roby you. Play fair. I am trying every way possible to cheat and you keep on climbing. You are like a Sherpa. You deserve a Volcano Clap.

Interesting discussion and what great scores. I opted for a central 'loiter point' at Birmingham. Seemed to work for me although I did notice it was difficult to be precise on the southerly moves. Think you picked the better option. If I get a lucky game where mostly midlands towns come out the scores can be ok. (for me) I have a giddy optical mouse, XP and Mozilla that struggles with the ads plus a connection that can be extremely slow. Add to that my 65 yrs on the planet and I am just happy to be anywhere on or around the podium. It's good fun !

Glad to hear of your methods, Steve.
I considered starting in the W. Midlands but found that the sudden click does not get enough points and that it is more difficult (at least for me) to have all ranges of motion (NSEW) as possibilities for places. From Brighton / Hove, with the exception of Penzance, Falmouth, Plymouth and Torquay (which are of course a little WSW) all other places are an upwards motion - or quick movements to the side for the likes of Fareham, Gosport, Portsmouth, Waterlooville, Bognor Regis, Littlehampton, Worthing, (and on the other side) Eastbourne and Hastings. Certainly the principle of having a repeating starting place makes the distances for movement much more familiar.
As to types of screen, I think that a very large screen would be more a hindrance than a help for a high score, if it is correct that speed is favoured over precision to the degree I mentioned below: the gains in being able to see more precisely the correct place would perhaps be outweighed by the distance the hand needs to travel. However, large touchscreens exist - so I wonder whether anyone has played the game well by screentouch rather than mouseclick?
After a bit more persistence I managed to break 115,000, and a decent go allowed low 115,200s. This had a lucky Brighton in and only a couple of sub-5,700 slips, so I won't try to better it. I would suppose that 115,500 is as good as could be done (at any rate given the laptop I use), if Brighton and Hove cropped up along with some other happily close places.
But maybe there is a better strategy?

Thanks Weezer, Interesting! I have been trying a similar scheme, mine is to hover over West Midlands and click immediately when any of the surrounding come up Birmingham-West Bromwich-Coldpit Heath-Wolverhampton-Walsall-Stourbridge-Solihull-Dudley.With Cannock-Coventry-Tamworth all very near.

The other method I have used is to click and stay so hoping the next one is near. So far that has been least successful.

One other method is starting from a particular point every time i.e. from South up or North down depending on your Mouse skill and preference.

I only ever do this at work (and geogeusser) and I have a standard screen size.
I would like to know if a larger screen would be a help or hinder?

Finally "Poppy and Tiger" are our beautiful Bengal Cats.

[continued - I hope - from below]

between each go I reset to Brighton and Hove, from where a dozen or more places are within an inch on the screen (allowing for a sub-1.5 click) and from where the preponderance of cities in the south can be accessed; of course, if Brighton and/or Hove crop up, an instant click gives some 5,920 points! With this method I think it would be possible, with a perfect go, to achieve somewhere in the low 115,000 region - but I don't have the patience to play for a perfect round! (The best I have managed is 57,900 on the first ten, but of course then a Gairloch or a Tamworth or a Wolverton comes to spoil the precision party...)
Anyway, I would be glad to hear how others tackle the game: maybe there are some very skilled mouse(wo)men who have better strategies?

Hi all. I wonder what technique high scorers on this game use?
Initially I aimed for precision over speed, i.e. trying to get within 3k under 2.5 seconds, but I found that this made it difficult to get more than 5,700 a go, which left no scope for recovery for a couple of bad placements (as always happen in a round of 20). I found the next day that a higher score can be had by favouring speed over precision: getting within 7 or 8k under 1.8 seconds generally does better, i.e. low 5,700s, and into the 5,800s with precision. This means there is no time for mouse corrections really (at least not for me, who am not very good with a laptop mouse) but more a direct drag, click and hope. This generally allows 5700-5800 per go - but of course a few errors crop up each round, for which compensation is difficult. I have also found that having a well-chosen fixed starting place for each go is useful: between each go I reset to Brighton

Cheers Chrowland. Did hit 114 a good while ago then the favourite mechanical mouse died. The optical replacement has proved to be more difficult for me so it's took a while to get back to that level.

Great score Grumer, I didnt expect anything else :)) Well, I will quit it too here I think, I had some great chances tonight for a bigger score but just didnt make it (mostly because of a "horrible" city in the end). I need really luck on this one to know all the cities. I still don't "know" precisely half of the Scottish cities and the following four I gave up to learn altogether: Chesterfield, Cannock, Wolverton and Mansfield = not possible for me to remember :)) Cheers

Ok... This is a tough one in the normal game.
Theres many cities that I still cant get a grip of.

Anyway... I quit the game here as I wont have any time to play tomorrow at all.
Good luck to all of you.
