Try the Traveller's IQ Challenge. I managed to get to level 6 with 196,290 on my first try... That's better - level 8 with 276,281. Oddly, level 7 was easier than level 6!

I'm topping out at level 8 because my knowledge of Africa and South America is rusty. Playing this more could be good for things.

There's also a built-in bias. The map doesn't use an equidistant projection, so the distance between where you click and where the "correct" location is greater nearer the poles and probably exaggerated in the Southern Hemisphere. It's also greater east-to-west versus north-to-south.

This is especially noticeable in questions about Indonesia and New Zealand. The ultimate problem is picking out the location of small South Pacific islands that aren't even visible on the map!
