<p>Okay, it&rsquo;s been a long day, so let&rsquo;s find today&rsquo;s time waster to blow off some steam&hellip;ah, UMapper has a new Flash-based, <a target="_blank" href="http://www.umapper.com/maps/view/id/31051/">Microsoft Virtual Earth game called &ldquo;GeoDart</a>.&rdquo; The object? Click the aerial photo closest to location specified to identify where it is. The closer you are and the faster you respond, the more points you accumulate. Get a high score and you get bragging rights for the rest of the week. Enjoy, and apologize to your managers for me as productivity is about to go through the floor.</p>

<p>There are currently two versions of the game UMapper game: </p>
<li><a target="_blank" href="http://www.umapper.com/maps/view/id/31051/">States</a> </li>
<li><a target="_blank" href="http://www.umapper.com/maps/view/id/26344/">Countries and Capitals</a> </li>
<p>However, if you don&rsquo;t like the current versions of the games, well, make your own! UMapper is providing the ability to <a target="_blank" href="http://www.umapper.com/pages/geodart/">make your own version of the game</a>. Also, you can see what games other people have made as a part of the community. I like the <a target="_blank" href="http://www.umapper.com/maps/view/id/31760/">Seven Wonders of the Ancient World</a>, because, well, there are only 7. I even made my own little game so you can see what conferences I&rsquo;ll be at and when&hellip;aptly named, <a target="_blank" href="http://www.umapper.com/maps/view/id/31781/">Where is CP, When</a>? Play my game, then go make your own.</p>
