World Zoomer

How’s your sense of location? Think you’re pretty good with maps, roads, landmarks, and geography?

Here’s the ultimate map game: A zoomed-in map, and four possible locations.

So, where are you?

How to Play:

Choose a deck of maps to play, and you’ll be plopped down somewhere on one of the randomly-chosen maps.

You’re free to scroll around the map to get your bearings. A wrong guess will zoom you out for a better view.

Try to figure out where you are before time runs out. Three wrong guesses in a row, and the game’s over.

If you get all the maps correct, you’ll proceed to the next level: The deck is re-shuffled, and the game speeds up.

Map Decks:

There are 23 decks of maps. The first deck (“Ten Largest U.S. Cities”) is free, and a single, modest, one-time purchase will unlock ALL the other decks. Nothing more to buy, ever!
