    I play this all the time in lessons with my teacher and the rest of the class. Looking for road signs is always the best way!

    Not to brag or anything, but I got full marks on a 'UK towns and cities' multiple choice class test in year 7. I think I win this thread.

    Edit: wtf was that ****. It showed me random bits of British grass and sky and expected me to know where exactly it was.. I'm pretty sure every other square mile of British countryside looks the same :/

    I've only been to Sheffield and some tiny village near it so my knowledge is extremely limited :laugh: I ended up just randomly clicking places hoping to get it right :teehee: I've got something like 3300.

    Well, I totally cocked that up.

    What made this irritating is that I couldn't find any clues. You'd never have this problem in London since most of the street signs give you information (apart from street name):

    I did all five and scored 23475. The UK's easy! I've played this on a version that was just Canada. Only Canada is... OMG it's so flipping hard! I've traveled nearly every province but that doesn't help much. Just about everyone flips out and gives up. This one, you just have to look a little down the road and there are LOTS of clues. On the Canadian one, you could just be at it for hours before you come to a place in the road that tells you where you are.
