This puzzle is based on Where is it? - The Google Earth Challenge series started by Conifers, :D

As usual, no reverse image are allowed.


Hey, check these out! These seven places are so special because the devil from hell did an experiment to combine a chicken sandwich and popcorn by accident. Silly, now where are they?

  • $\begingroup$ @shoover The text above the pictures says yes, somehow. $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Sep 14 at 18:42

Continuing from Birjolaxew's discovery of

Popcorn, Indiana, USA,

1 is

Accident, Maryland, USA:

Accident

2 is

Chicken, Alaska, USA:

Chicken

3 is

Devil Town, Ohio, USA:

Devil

4 is

Experiment, Georgia (state), USA:

Experiment

5 is

Hell, Michigan, USA:

Hell

6 is

Popcorn, Indiana, USA, as already discovered by Birjolaxew.

Popcorn

7 is

Sandwich, Massachusetts, USA, as already discovered by tjs352.

Sandwich

So the connection is,

as you said, the devil from hell doing an experiment to combine a chicken sandwich and popcorn by accident. I don't know if there's any significance to all the places chosen being in the USA - e.g. instead of choosing the more famous Sandwich in England which gave its name to the food called a sandwich - but the USA is certainly known for its odd place names which could be standard English words!

  • $\begingroup$ All of them are correct, well done! :D No particular "relation" actually here except the connection you wrote above. I thought it would be a bit impossible to solve without the hint so let the hint tells them right away! $\endgroup$ – athin Sep 15 at 0:29

Partial answer:

Judging by the map information written in the lower-right of each image, all these pictures are of the US. In two cases we get state information (#3 is in Ohio, #6 is in Indiana), which gives us a general area to search in.
I only found the location of #6 and #7.

#6 is in Indiana, but has a lot of wooded areas. This made me focus on the south-western part of the state. The road in the top-left corner looks big enough that it's probably route 69 (judging by the angle), which led me to the area around Popcorn, Indiana.

#7 is close to the ocean / a huge lake, and contains an airport. The shape of the peninsula is pretty unique, and at that scale it can be spotted easily from a zoomed out image. It matches the area around Camp Edwards, Massachusetts.

    $\begingroup$ #7 reveals Sandwich, Massachusetts, indicated by "sandwich" in the hint. #6 points to "popcorn". My assumption is that the other locations will have associations to words in the hint. $\endgroup$ – tjs352 Sep 14 at 19:41

Partial: #3 is

Devil Town, Wayne Township, OH, USA

Which I found with a bit of guesswork and hints from other answers.

Partial answer:

#5 is Hell, Michigan

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ I think I found #5 before you, but you get my +1 for being the first to fully identify #7 (in a comment). $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Sep 14 at 20:08
