A spin-off from GeoWizard, Tom Davies’ occasional series here. (See what i watch in the sidebar.)
Basically a photo of a place (or a person in a place), and you have to find out where they are. Tom has been doing this for a while now, and as you might expect, he’s pretty good at it.
But now a fan has made a site dedicated specifically to it, and as a first attempt, it’s really rather good.
Basically, you are given an image of a place, and you have to locate the place. You can use whatever means you like: googling is actively encouraged – but you do have to find something to google.
This was the first one that I attempted. And I got it spot on in about 3 minutes. So clearly, everything you need is there.
Anyway, the only downside is that you have to create a (free) account to play. But it’s well worth it as an occasional fun distraction from the misery of modern life.
