They give you a random location. You have to look around for clues as to where you are in the world and try to guess on the map where you are. It's addicting and fun and a good way to explore the world!

eta: So far I've learned that I don't know Australia when I'm looking at it.

I got one that was obviously Tokyo, and then some totally anonymous stretch of country highway that could be anywhere in the US where there are straight roads and power lines.

Of course, I DO know it's the US, and I suspect the Pacific Northwest or California because of the trees, so maybe I'm not going to end up THAT far off. Let's see...

It was Minnesota. But still. There goes the next hour or so. Thanks. 8)

Not even fair!

They use Australia a lot! I kept getting it wrong and it was always Australia so after a while I just started clicking Australia as a joke and they were right!

Yeah, I also got Australia three times. I got one in FL as well, and another in the States. It's hard! Apparently I am terrible at guessing locations!

forking Australia! Even when you know it's Australia and you pick the wrong part of the country, you're still like 2,000 kilometres off.

Ooooh fun! My first game final score was 11877. I got each country right but was off by a few hundred km for all of them.

I had one that looked just like Australia but with different road markings, so I figured it must be New Zealand.
