Challenge Your Eyes with the Eyeballing Game

I have always fan­cied myself a pret­ty good eye­baller, and now there’s a test to prove it one way or anoth­er: the eye­balling game. I amazed myself at how good I did on some of the tests, and utter­ly dis­ap­point­ed myself on oth­ers. Either way, I was ahead of the curve. Where do you fall?

Update 2022 — I scored worse on the eyeballing game

I found this post while aim­less­ly brows­ing the archives here, and I could­n’t help but give the eye­balling game anoth­er try. The game tracks the time tak­en to play it now, which I think made me a lit­tle more anx­ious about my scores because…

I did worse. Actu­al­ly, I was doing very well — most answers were pret­ty decent, with one being only half a unit off, but I messed up sev­er­al, with scores of 6.0, 6.2, 8.1, and 11.7 units off. 

This put me right on the curve.

  1. Some­one should make a ver­sion of this game with opti­cal illu­sion over­lays on top of the tests. Try find­ing the point of con­ver­gence when the straight­est of lines looks like its curv­ing! (It’s times like these I wish I knew how to do Flash.)

  2. This remind­ed me of gemoetry class…bisect the angle? I had for­got­ten what that meant! haha…Rick, I received a score of 11.17! I messed up a few times because I was try­ing to adjust it with the mouse to fig­ure out where the lines should be and let go and clicked it acci­den­tal­ly. LOL But I nev­er claimed to be a good eye-baller.

  3. I am very impressed with your 3.37.

    I just did a 3.71. I’ve done this in the past and I’m sure the 3.71 is the best I’ve managed.

    1. Well, the third time around this week, I man­aged a 4.08. The first two were 10 something!!

      Eye­balling would seem to be for the young. Of course, I was­n’t exact­ly young in 2009!
