Geoguessr makes my where in the world a doddle!

As someone all too familiar with the concept of "where in the world am I" it makes my heart glad to see a new online game which complements me perfectly. Geoguessr uses Google Earth to plonk you somewhere in the world using street view, and you have to guess where you are using as few moves as possible.
It's very addictive, trust me. Created by Swedish IT Consultant Anton Wallen simply as a way of using Google's street view as a bit of fun, it throws up all kinds of learning opportunities for teachers to use or just to expand your knowledge of our world.
