Going the Distance

by: Kev

Players: 2+ Quizmaster required: Yes
A quizmaster gives contestants a location and then a distance. They then have to name a town or city which, in a straight line, is as close to that distance from the original location as possible. All contestants are in play, closest to the mark wins the round. Some rounds are 'home', which means the locations are in the UK, and some are 'away', which means they are not. 1 point for winning the round if it's a 'home' round, 2 points if it's an 'away' round. 5 rounds in total.
