Smarty Pins

Thursday, August 7th, 2014 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

Smarty Pins is a really fun geography game that combines Google Maps with trivia questions. Your job is to try and place your pin as closely to the correct answer as possible. 

You have two options to play. You can just click the Start a New Game or you can click on the Select a Category link beneath it. 

If you just start a new game, you’ll be whisked away to the game. If you choose to select a category first, you’ll be given options of Featured Topics, Arts & Culture, Science & Geography, Sports & Games, Entertainment, or History & Current Events.

In the top left corner of the map you’ll find the trivia interface, this is where you’ll get your clue, as well as the place where you can ask for a hint, and keep track of your miles. To play the game just drag and drop the pin on the location of what you think is the correct answer. And click Submit. If you  run out of miles, the game is over. My best record so far is only 6 questions before running out of miles. I’ve discovered I’m really good at questions about capital cities.

This is a really cool way to test your geographic and trivia knowledge, have some fun and play it today!
