You are asked questions based on various aspects like Science & Geography, Arts & Culture, Sports & Games, Entertainment and History & Current Events. The game is very interesting and knowledge based. All the questions will be location based which means you will be thrown challenges on the above mentioned aspects and their answers are the places. You have to drop a red pin on the correct location (which is your answer for the question).
At the start of the game you will get awarded with certain kilometers which act as points for you. Correct answers will save your kilometer points. But if you give wrong answers then your kilometer points will be deducted. For every wrong answer the map will display a green pin on the map which is the correct answer for the question asked.
