New Web-based Game Ideal for Geography and Travel Fans

If you're the kind of person visually stimulated by geography and have a knack for identifying far off locations, GeoGuessr is the game for you.

Using Google Street View and Google Maps to plot location images around the world at random, the player is tasked with "pinning" their guess for the image's location on a map. The closer the guess in mileage, the higher the score.
