    This game has been around for a while. the tiny map makes it really hard... lots of places I knew exactly I would miss by hundreds of miles because the maps so small.

    The bad thing about the small map is that it`s hard to pinpoint a location which you know, but it can be a good thing when you have to look for a small location in a huge country.

    "come on thats a bit unfair expecting americans to be able to find places outside of the US."

    Shush Tard! Map too small, time limit made it hard but fun. Everything they asked to find I had heard of but couldn`t get close enough to spot for points. I got so panicked at one point I was like "What the drat, what is Dallas?"....I know I had a Tard moment.

    Well, given that it`s a geography quiz, I`m gonna go out on a limb and say `locations`. Just the first thing that popped into my head though, could of course be short for... locusts. Or... um... locations.

    Yes, you are an idiot. Think before you type.

    Your have concluded that i am an idiot because I didn`t understand your abbreviation?
    weird...

    and to answer your comment...
    considering your country`s extreme involvement in the mideast... you should know the location of iraq, iran, afghanistan... and also north korea and most of the countries surrounding them... there is no possibility of forming a political opinion in your country without having that knowledge...
    and general knowledge of the world is something most people have...
    but you americans have decided that you don`t need to know the location of any country besides your own...

    i made it to level 8 and then lost miserably...my african geography is terrible. don`t you love when you have no idea where something is, you blindly guess, and end up missing by 10,000 miles?
    closest ones i got were 9 miles to niagara falls and 3 miles to sydney ^_^ made me very, very happy
    IQ 101
