SmartyPins is a game that utilizes Google Maps and trivia. How it works: Choose a category, and read the question, and drop the pin on the correct geographic location. The closer you are the better, because you will be deducted for every “mile” off. Run out of miles and it’s game over. But don’t worry, you can always try again. And again and again.
Categories include Arts & Culture, Science & Geography, Sports & Games, Entertainment and History & Current Events. Bonus: When you get answers correct, the game includes cute messages of encouragement and funny GIFs like the Google Streetview guy dancing in a banana suit.
