Well I don't expect anything as it isn't my game and actually so far I have not done good enough to declare on here.

Can I presume that you know that you can look all around, and move as far as you want to go in any direction?

We've just played this - fun game

Can anyone advise on the Rules?

At the moment we are just allowed to turn on the spot 360°.
But are you allowed to zoom in or out (some signs are just too blurred)?

And furthermore, are you allowed to 'take a step' (and God forbid, steps) in any direction?
This is surely cheating

Rob, I've had a fair few like that which were Australia but also had some suburban scenes that turned out to be Australia too!

The one thing it does reinforce is how pretty and tidy the English countryside is!

Good game if you've got time to waste and can be arsed to travel along the roads until you come across a road sign or a building with a name on it. One of mine was a tiny island belonging to Japan in the Pacific, which was tricky to zoom in on.

I just hit 15,205 helped, no doubt, by the fact that I was on a bridge somewhere, looking down at a building
that looked very much like "Sydney Opera House"!

What was strange is that I zoomed in as far as possible, and hit the bridge, but I was still 534 ms away!
