A screen showing a map appears. Different place names and famous attractions come up near the top of the screen and you have to place your cursor and click where on the map you think that place is. You are scored based on how close to the actual location that you clicked. But there is a time factor as well and you get bonus points if you click fast!
There are several categories that you can choose from. When we each first tried it, we did the World category. We made it through the first few levels without much problem, but when we got to the more difficult stages we quickly learned that our world knowledge is pretty good in regions that we've been to. We'll simply need to travel more I guess!
Here you go, see how well you do!
Our first time trying this, my score was 175,000 and I didn't make it past level 6. Ruth was almost exactly the same at 170,000. However the second time I made it to 375,000 and level 9. Maybe you think you would do better doing a regional version of the game? You can try them all here...
It was sunny but cool yesterday. Ruth and I went for a walk on the dykes that were built in this valley back in the 1700's when the French came to this area. They built the dykes to direct the flood waters from the Bay of Fundy tides. There is rich agricultural land in this valley, and to this day the dykes allow the land to be farmed.
Standing on the dyke you can see the rich farmland. The Gaspereau River is immediately behind me on the other side of the dyke.
Ruth, standing on the dyke. At high tide, the water is covering the long grass on the right side of where she is standing.

We're doing a day trip into the city of Halifax today!
