How does #swissguesser work? — We tweet every morning and afternoon an aerial photo, surface or relief map of Switzerland. Reply as soon as possible with your guess of the municipality or place shown in the image. The fastest correct answer scores a set number of points as announced in the tweet, slower ones score a fifth of that.
How will you know if your #swissguesser answer was correct? — If you were the first to submit a correct answer, @swissguesser will mention and congratulate you. If you were correct but not the fastest, we will like your answer tweet. If there is no interaction, you were off – better luck next time!
You want to know your current score? — Simply go to the leaderboard at https://swissguesser.github.io/leaderboard. . Or ask @swissguesser by tweeting «score» (or more politely, for example: «What is my score, please?» 😉) at us. We’ll do the calculations and send you your current rank and stats.
How does #swissguesser decide on how many points to award per challenge? — We decide based on image difficulty, which in turn is defined by what is shown in the image. Per challenge, we award a set number of points as announced in the tweet – you can (try and) bribe us with chocolate 😉.
