New statistics game

http://guessthecorrelation.com/ is a game (with very retro graphics) to guess correlations from scatter plots. It is surprisingly difficult to do well, especially since Pearson’s r is so heavily dominated by the outliers, while our visual perception is more attuned to the group.

I’d like to thank Robert Jernigan for his post http://statpics.blogspot.com/2016/02/correlation-guessing.html that pointed me to the game.  (My current high score is 163.)
