This is actually pretty fun for geography nerds: You're given a random image, from Google maps (street view) & you have to guess where it is in the world and put a pin on another world map (satellite) where you think the image is from. At the end it gives you a score.

It's amazing how you can look at an image from a place you might never have been and very closely pinpoint its place in the world.
