Geographic guessing game? Are you for real? How can that be educative or fun?
Geoguessr's basic idea is to have the player guess (or know) locations of pictures shown. Each game has 5 locations and you get points based on how good your knowledge is. You can also set up challenges, like time limit. Some pictures are also really hard to guess from first look, so you have to zoom around and search around for clues or hints (like signs in different language).
This makes the game innovative, educative and fun at the same time. Once you've cleared your first game, you get options to start a new game, or share your game to your friends f.ex in Facebook. They can then either be astounded of your geographical knowledge or ask you for hints in next lottery draw.
Above is a picture of a house I somehow got inside to. Can you guess where this location is at?
With new tools for creativity even learning can be fun. Who said learning can't be fun. I'd say from a gamer perspective, this game is as addicting as flappy bird is. It even has the same side-effects of getting frustrated, when your opponent doubles your score you were so proud of.

Thanks Mohaiken for tipping about this jewel of a game.
How did your knowledge of atlas score at? Was it easier to pinpoint picture of Poland than a location of Azeroth (or any other game you've played before)? Comment below if you tried the game!
