Audio Tour 1 made no such restriction. Now some tasks might appear to be self-evidently "Bay Area only" however I believe that with creativity, many of those difficulties can be overcome. Now I recognize that one could travel to San Francisco from any other city and accomplish this task, which would be epic, indeed, though such a move hardly requires any creativity--Oh? Bay Area only? Gosh I guess the only thing I have to do is travel to the bay area. That's creative!

But this is the first one I've seen that declares "SF/Bay Area Only Please" with no comment as to why. Following such a restriction further excludes non-SF players from any of the subsequent tasks in this series with no apparent reasoning.

From the outside (and it's hard to be further outside than Minneapolis, is it?) this would appear to be an arbitrary task restriction which has impacts on multiple tasks. Dare I say discriminatory? Well, no, it's not discrimination, that's too extreme. But it's pointlessly exclusionary and preferential. Are we to expect this is how things will go?

For my second audio tour I went to the location pictured, and captured via sound. I love it there, it's quiet, but it is cold and full of rubbish. We included photo's because they don't give the place away to anyone not in the town, and I wanted ...

This is the second part of the GYZero AudioTour completion by Tom, Ben, Adam and Daryl. For this part of the tour we move on to one of my favourite places to hang out in the outdoors. It is a small park in the centre of town called St George's Park....

Me, being the worst at speaking about something for a long time, actually managed to go on for around (probably just under) a minute. I went down to a sports and leisure centre in Great Yarmouth, even though it is a sports and leisure centre and I (a...
