Click on the "go" button, and you'll see a crowd, anywhere from 15 up to 2,000 tiny people! Soon, a box will pop up to ask you how many people are in the crowd. After you guess, you'll find out the actual number. The closer your guess, the more points you'll earn! Click "go" again to see another crowd and try to add to your score. You can estimate the size of as many crowds as you like.
