This is a great game - but I've one small correction for you: the Globe Theatre is (just) west of Tate Modern, so those two dots should be switched, I think.

Thanks for all your comments. You can get the announced expansion pack (another 45 dots) from now on and right here:

Have fun!

(I wanted to use the above-mentioned new option to reduce the number of dots, but I gave up on it because the unused dots are shown anyhow, which is confusing imho.)

If every time you play the game, 20 randomly selected dots out of 100 will be tested, that doesn't change the fact that you have to learn all 100.

Conclusions:
- Would be a great game
- Would not be a beginner's course
- I would like the game either way. Great job!

Are non-active dots going to be hidden, or will all of them be visible?

Well, either way if the selection of the dots can't be influenced, I see there is a risk of certain regions getting too crowded (and I hate overlapping dots). Another thing, I like the game as a beginner's game just the way it is.

But I promise to do a sequel game somewhere during the next week, if nobody else did it until then. Maybe I will use the new option in this, too.

I also plan on a game on Prague. Look out for it in the middle of June ...

There's another option, equestenebrarum....

You could add all of those dots you and Ronald mention and limit the number of dots requested per game to... let's say 20... or 30... That way your game will be more complete and it won't take forever to finish it.

Use the new options that David added to improve games.

Great game, tough

Hello RonaldDerGrosse! I don't want the game to have more than 35 dots. I think of 35 as something like an upper limit.

I think I have an even better idea though. You (or anyone else) can download the map and create the sequel to the beginner's game. There is so much to add (Oxo Tower, Victoria & Albert, Covent Garden, Chinatown, the Museum of London ... ... ... other parks and stations and so on).

There could even be more than one sequel, maybe issue-oriented games like a museums game, stations game etc.)

The map can be found here:

Can you add good old Scotland Yard and Marble Arch. Somebody in Hyde Park is sure to want to speak up on the price of "fish and chips".
