About the game and the author

The addiction to geography games came from TV quiz shows in Germany, where such games as The Map Game were played. In 2009 I started KartenQuiz as a small online version of this kind of map games. Some time later I added The Map Game as the english version.

Being fascinated by the increasing interest and traffic I decided to start another geography quiz. This time it had to be something more funny. So the estimation of distances with unusual metrics came to my mind and this is the reason for this project.
