28N / 77E

Z is learning about latitude and longitude. So, I gave him an idea for a game. He liked it, and we played it yesterday.

First, we have a reference card with the names of 5 cities, from all over the world, with their latitude and longitude written down.
  • One person takes up an atlas (Goode's is good), finds a fairly well known city, and says it's latitude and longitude.
  • The other person has to guess the city. They can consult the reference card.
  • If you guess wrong, you're told "Go East", or "Go North-West", etc.
  • You get three guesses. Three points for getting it on the first guess, 1 for the third guess.

What an awesome game! I am now celebrating guessing Delhi on the first guess!
