    I have no real idea aside from it being in the UK so time for my default answer since google is for the weak: (SPOILER)London, UK

    I think my favourite part about this round is how close, yet so far, you all were. Especially with reasoning such as this:

    It must be a member in UK... Gonna guess somewhere in Scotland? Welp, the only member on the list from Scotland has openly stated many times that they are not from Edinburgh. o u guiz.

    I think several people fell for "Princes Mall", since the first google result for it is Edimburgh's Princes Mall and not East Kilbride's. However, a quick street view check shows it can't be right.

    And then there is Death

    That's part of the reason I threw that ol' pic in there. Princes Mall sounds like it would be somewhere fancy. xD

    I'm too late to probably have much of a chance at a competitive score (if I can even still join) but I'm gonna take a stab at (SPOILER)Toulouse, France

    Yes, Pontus. Round 3 is the last round I accept late submissions, but you will receive a point penalty for the missed rounds .

    I didn't know that! Do you think I remember people's exact locations on here I just went 'screw' it, and went with the de facto Capital.

    Sorry for the double post but I don't want to get in trouble for 'editing' anything but here is my answer for this third round:

    Round Three, FIGHT
    I'm getting a French Theme with this, but more importantly more of a Mediterranean one as well. I can't see it being northern France, or anywhere around Paris. I imagine it would be near, or around the coast as well. Of course, this is all calculated guessing but it just looks like it'd be in Southeastern France. Now for a location... Hmm... *Looks at map*. I'll just take a wild stab at... Marseille?

    I had the same thing - spent a good while searching around and around the street views of the Edinburgh mall, suspicious because of the very different logo. Then I searched for "The Exchange", which is also visible in the photo, and eventually found this: http://goo.gl/maps/FbB9p


    EDIT: I must say, I've learned more about church architecture in the last twenty-four hours than I ever thought I would need or want to know. Damn, this is a difficult one. I've been able to identify only one aspect of this building so far that isn't fairly standard church-building practice, and it's apparently so unique I can't find an example of it anywhere!

    I'm sure that's some kind of well known landmark somewhere, but smurf me I have no idea. Best guess: (SPOILER)getting an Italy vibe. Don't know why. I'll say Florence, Italy, but I'm prepared to be completely and utterly wrong. Watch it be California or some trout and my score will suddenly sky rocket.
