    I remembered this when I visited an old forum I used to be active on earlier today. It's a forum game where I take screenshots from maps, crop them so you don't see the whole picture, and post them. You then have to say which map it is taken from. I know this has been done before, but that thread was slightly different (and the last post was August 10).

    Pictures posted are from any official map (including community maps, like Yukon or Steel), any map on the TF2Maps.net Server Rotation, or any well known map here (Contest Entries, Blackwood, etc.)

    The first person to reply with the correct map name gets two points. If you name the location in that map as well, you get a third point. Anybody after him with the correct map name gets one point. Note: If somebody before you has already explained where in the map the picture is, you can still do the same. If you explain the location better than the other person, you may receive a point ('In the unreachable part of A' isn't as good as 'Behind the glass window to the right of A'). I will try and post new pictures at different parts of the day to let our foreign friends have a chance.

    I'll try not to have any really hard ones unless I find you guys to be really good at this. I'll post each new picture in a new post as well as put it on the OP.

    Well I guess that was an easy one...

    Note: I will probably post two a day for when multiple people get it right off the bat, but hopefully I'll have some pictures that aren't so easy.

    Ratclaw: I know. If you look at my first post, I mention that thread.

    viaduct has snow models on its roofs, not simply overlays.

    It's Glacier cp B, behind the barbed fence with the unreachable area.

    Slightly edited first post.

    You can still get an extra point if you describe the location of the picture better than the first person to get it all correct. The third point will still go to the first person if they describe the location, but if you do it better, you earn two points total (implying that you said the map as well).

    I also added previous pictures to it, in case anybody coming in late was curious.

    I also will now post the new picture in a new post as well as the OP.

    Mangy gets it right. I apparently need to step it up a notch, huh?

    Looks like Steel to me. Sort of looks like it would fit in Granary's spawn rooms too though.

    I'm thinking one of the inaccessible areas of Meridian.
