Random map locations, especially where the streets do not run N/S/E/W are very difficult to navigate. Has anyone discovered “more playable” locations? edit - Played a little more - turns are not always recognized, which can prove to be fatal. Still, a fun concept.

Oh, I always assumed that was an elaborate prank, given it makes no sense.

For the purposes of Pac-Man, sidewalks appear to be included in the playing field. University of Michigan central campus: https://www.google.com/maps/@42.2767349,-83.7390221,18z/data=!1e3?hl=en

That is so horrible and so appropriate. Not only is today the day the Eiffel Tower opened, but it was the first day of DST in the US.

You mean historically? Because the time change happened weeks ago for this year.

Yes, sorry. Historically. In 1918.

And the bit about the Eiffel Tower?

Did you confuse Paris with Swindon?

The Arc de Triomphe is good though.
