    Got 13 in Sports and Games. Tanked on #14 by confusing the 2013 NBA Champs with the 2014 Champs.

    Got nailed at #14 as well! Didn't know where Columbia U. was. ops:

    And yeah, this is a time killer! But so much fun, and actual trivia.

    Not going to try that again. I got all 30 in History and Current Events, but it took me over an hour. Who the heck can find Antietam and Appomattox on a google map? They are both tiny burgs!

    I feel the need to tell everybody that the answer is in the chunk of map shown; I got screwed on my first question by trying to move the map around a bit. If you think the right answer is outside the map, you be wrong!

    Also I found that using the Zoom feature can help. It will allow you to see place names, topography or other features that might help bring the answer to mind.
