Exactly. It does happen from time to time that a tag is USA- or Southern Hemisphere-specific, but not very often. Most of the tags would be good for me - and I am really not in the USA..
I have to say that those monument and other war related stuff is unfortunatley coming back over and over again. Somehow it seems a lot of people in the US are still very into all that...

Anyway, as advNZer said, the game is relaxed. People are usually very flexible in terms of what is accepted as a grab. It's fun, so join us!
Of course it would be cool to have some more Europeans, Asians or Africans playing, but I guess that's just the way it is.
Where do you come from, BTW? The Americas means.... ?

The Americas would include Chile, wouldn't it?




Sometimes tags can be a bit regional, half the fun is trying to come up with universal tags, the other half is coming up with a response to a difficult tag.

It can be surprisingly difficult to come up with fun tags which are neither trivial nor near impossible to replicate.

New Tag

Being from Pittsburgh I have to represent. The tag is any business that deals in Steel and has the word Steel (in any language) on their business sign.

I don't think they will mind. They seem like a good bunch of players on here. This was my first tag in this tread as well.

The drive in theater was invented in Europe.






Fine, it wasn't.

Ooops. That may or may not have been directed towards some of what I've posted. Truth be told, a lot of my tag pics involve stopping where I probably shouldn't and taking a pic with the cell phone without getting off the bike.

Point noted.

Too fast!
I was about to grab the steel-tag on the way home from work and when I arrived here you were already two tags further!
Wow.

Gonna go to bed now, let's see what's on tomorrow morning, when you guys are still sleeping for once.

BTW: A dollar-sign is not exactly international.. I don't even have it on my keyboard... But I guess a would have been accepted anyways. The Swiss Franc doesn't have a sign like that.
Alright, see you tomorrow!

I've been tagging for three years now and that $ tag has got to be the fastest that I know of. 1:17 is really impressive. It takes me that long just to upload a picture
