Number of rounds in a game as a setting

This suggestion relates to an old post (https://kundo.se/org/geoguessr/d/more-rounds-in-a-game/), but seeing how many people replied to it in the past few weeks, I think it is still very relevant and deserves more visibility.

The idea is to be able to change the number of rounds in a game or challenge (5 by default). Several use cases have been shared (feel free to reply with some more):
- geography lessons at school
- custom maps with 6 to <100 locations for one-shot games with friends/family/community
- easier streak record attempts

This idea apparently has been in the backlog for years, but devs seem to think too few people are concerned, and I tend to disagree. I personally became a Pro member precisely for making private custom maps for my friends.

Besides, I'm almost certain that this feature can be developed quite quickly and easily, and as a developer I'd be glad to help for free if there was a forkable git repo...

Thanks and have a nice day

  • Clarification about why 5-round games are not good for custom maps with <100 locations: it's almost impossible to play every single location on such maps without encountering tens of repetitions of already played locations.

  • I'd like to see these changes implemented as well. Manual control of how many rounds per map and seeing all locations per map, instead of random locations and seeing repeats.

  • I really wish i could play more than 5 rounds. I actually just bought the pro membership assuming I would be able to play unlimited rounds if I wanted to.  It seems absurd to me that we wouldn't have a " unlimited rounds" mode where I could just keep going from spot to spot.

    TBH I'll probably canceling my membership because of this reason

  • Any answers from CM or devs maybe ?

  • We do not have current plans on change a classic game from 5 games to 10, but who knows what will happen in the future 🙂

  • My use case is a corporate team building event where everyone has submitted a landmark from where they grew up. I need to visit all of them exactly once.

    As a workaround, I'm about to split my custom map with 30 locations into 6 smaller maps of 5 locations. Then I'll move to the next map after each game so I can visit every location without repeats.

    The export/import CSV feature should help a lot, but it's still annoying to need extra preparation and extra steps during the event.

  • I would also love to see this implemented! It would be so fun to make maps of places that come in a chronological sequence, like winners of Eurovision, or things that come in a certain number, like all UNESCO world heritage sites in a certain country. I often find maps with fun themes but won't play them more than once because it is so annoying getting repeats.

  • Would love to be able to manually set how many in each round, I have a map set of ~100 places, but its impossible and a little annoying going through and getting the same ones each time you play again. Should be a pretty straight forward option.

  • Please make this a thing. Not sure why the GeoGuessr team hasn't implimented this. I'd pay more money to have this at this point.
