    This is the Where in the World discussions thread. The main thread is reserved for actual gameplay only. All other discussions are to take place in this thread.


    Here is how Where in the world? is played.

    Where in the World is a geographical game for iPF members. The concept is simple. One member posts a picture with a request for information such as location, significance and name and the rest of us have to try to work out the answer(s) from the clues given. Whoever gives the first complete answer sets the next challenge. The poster of the challenge confirms that the challenge has been met.

    The game has two threads. The first is for the game itself. Posts are limited to those asking questions, answering them or asking for further clues. The second is a discussion thread where any other questions or comments about a challenge may be posted.

    All usual iPF rules apply. Additionally, there are certain other requirements for participation. Photographs used may be either the posters own work or from other sources. Photographs must be clear, but may be cropped or otherwise manipulated to remove details which would give away the challenge.

    Anyone posting a challenge should be aware that monitoring the thread is crucial to gameplay. If you cannot monitor, please don't set a challenge. If several hours have passed, and you need to go offline, please ask one of the following moderators to monitor the challenge on your behalf: KevinJS, Scifan57 or Admiral Adama. You may pass over setting the challenge and throw it open to anyone who wants to set one. If more than one challenge is posted, the first will be deemed to be the current one, and any others will be deleted.

    Any method is acceptable to find the answer. Last time we played this game, we discovered Google Goggles, which can identify many photographs quite quickly. You may get some information this way. You may not get everything that the question asks for. Copying and pasting answers is not allowed, but you may base your answers on researched content.

    I saw Mons Meg when I visited Edinburgh in 2005. I have a photo of Mons Meg, but wasn't able to track it down for this challenge. There was such a crowd around the gun that I had to wait for almost 20 minutes to get a good picture with no people in front of the gun.

    To my eternal shame, I have been in Edinburgh many times and never knew of the existence of this piece.

    I'm just doing a bit of digging. The next challenge will be up shortly. Thanks for starting us up, sci. Let's see where events take us.

    Did you climb to the top of Arthur's seat when you were in Edinburgh?

    No. My travels to Edinburgh were always of a business nature, with no time for sight seeing.

    I like to say that I've seen the world at 60 mph. On the bright side, I've seen a lot and been paid to do it.

    I'm surprised to see Woodstock fell so fast. Just goes to show how little effect humans can really have on the land. It seems to have recovered quite nicely.

    Seriously eh. Almost time to start working on a 2019 "50th" anniversary concert to get things muddy again.

    I read a piece a while ago comparing the Woodstock fiasco to the Apollo 11 launch a month prior. Approximately the same number of people attended both events, with considerable differences in outcome.

    For me, Woodstock was summed up by Jimi Hendrix' disgraceful rendition of the US National Anthem, and should be quietly forgotten about, lest us true music lovers become tarred with the same brush. There I said it. (But I also said I didn't like the Beatles, and no-one's shot me yet.)
