As much as Google has shrunk our world for the better, we fear the all-seeing G might, in the same motion, strip it of the wonders it holds. Then, we see something like this game. Giving you a Street View image, a gridded world map and fifty guesses, it asks you to pinpoint the spot it was taken, and remember the uniqueness of every vista and street corner.
The game appears to be in an early prototype phase, as it only contains a handful of windows from the weekly contest, but it's worth checking out. (If you're the creator of the game, we want to hear from you! Drop us a line at VFYWcontest@theatlantic.com)
