Disagree. Q20 is the last question. Dig more and find it. Q20 needs to be far more specific. We found London's, I think we're close enough to find this one. It's just a pain in the butt.

Also, as a rule of etiquette, in the future anyone who selects a location in the middle of one of the most asinine metropolitan/urban areas in the world gets a swift kick in the teeth.

The problem is, if we are TOO specific, and get it wrong, then we just lost a whole question and eliminated what? A small circle of this stupid, God-forsaken city?

Yeah I know, and we may just have to ask more questions. It's a bummer, but lately we've had some difficult challenges.

Actually, no it doesn't. Sorry for the double post, but it doesn't. There's no rule against doing that.

Agreeing, reluctantly.

That probably wouldn't be that hard to find, compared to something like the metropolitan places we've dealt with so far.

I'm near Nakamuraken station, about 13 min walk. 9 1/2 minute walk from 2 7-elevens and a Circle K.

If triangulated properly with this info you will pinpoint my location

Good luck.

google directions

there is a walking option ;)


all you need is a printout, mean walk time distances, a drawing compass ( or paint ) and some triangulations... basic geometry really


edit: 12 mins from one of the many "Aichi Prefecture Nagoya City Nakamura Ward"


here is some help ;)

So far for triangulation of near area is:

Nakamuraken station to X location ~ 13 mins
one of the many Aichi Prefecture Nagoya City Nakamura Ward to X location ~ 12 min
7-eleven #1 to X location~ 9 1/2 min
7-eleven #2 to X location~ 9 1/2 min
Circle K to X location~ 9 1/2 min

Average walking time based on walking distance directions to the X location.

Ok, i am pretty sure I have found it, just east of the station and the west of the ward, but since pheonix is so adamant about being the discoverer, i will wait 16 hours before posting it to give him a chance.

This.

Lets move on. And seriously, if the challenge requires you to learn how to triangulate a position to win, that's probably a good indication that you should tone it back. :P
