World Geography Quiz? (?seen on mefi in the last 5 weeks?) - Involves putting flags close to locations

Sorry about this but I'm stuck.. I'm sure I saw a world geography quiz on mefi this year but I cannot find it. I am hoping to humiliate my friend because he thinks he's *the man* on all matters geographical?

There's a Facebook application called Traveler IQ Challenge that does just this. Warning: found it _very addictive_.

Here's a few other decent ones:

-Lufthansa to Europe (marketing crap, but fun nonetheless)
-TravelPod

BTW -- The Traveler IQ Challenge was developed by TravelPod (which TripAdvisor purchased in December 2006). In additon to being available at TravelPod and TripAdvisor, the game is syndicated to various sites, such as Bebo, Facebook and Friendster. ("To embed this game in your site, copy and paste this text: from here")

TravelPod's Traveler IQ Challenge -- "See Which Schools, Companies, Government Agencies and Locations Have the Best and Worst Geography Knowledge; Ivies Not So Smart; National Geographic Top of News Media Heap."
