It is not really cheating if you were silly enough to leave the location in the film name.

This picture is of Shinjuku, the business center of Tokyo.

I'm cheating as well because I just right clicked on the picture, went to properties and got the URL of the site it came from...looks like you'll need to post another one dunbrine47

There is no fun in this game because:
a) you change the picture too soon before people get a guess
b) there is only one person posting the pictures
c) if people guess it then they get called a cheater
d) A LOT of people in europe don't care about skylines, only americans do because they don't have any history to remember

1.Fine,what do you recomend as a good time between photos.
2.So?Photos not good enough for you?
3.No they only get called a "Cheater" if they don't know the skyline and are desprate to find out.
4.I will use this topic as my defense that you people don't know a lick about geoogphary.

Hm, there are plenty of characteristic European skylines, so this game could be funny - but it would probably be much easier with European cities.
The main thing that kills the fun is, that the same person posts pictures all the time. We should change the rules similar to other games here. The one who has the correct guess, should post the next picture.

This could have worked quite well, but it didn't.
