A friend of mine recently tipped me off to the Traveler IQ challenge—an addictive trivia game that measures your ability to pick the exact location of world capitals, historical sights, and later, cities that you've never heard of, on a colorful interactive map. Test your geographic knowledge one game at a time, or—to save your score and compete against friends—load the application onto your Facebook page by clicking here. On a recent try I got to level 10 with a total of 322,923 points (all in the name of research, of course). So what's your best score?
