This riddle named Shape of Places has been offered through the years to challenge you to explore a map, globe, world atlas, almanac or resources on the internet to identify the shape of a geographical area depicted in the Shape of Places square.
The riddle grew out of Gene Modin's interest in the pedagogy of reading, writing and arithmetic. Modin decided the best way to capture interest in these fundamental aspects of education is with geography, which is why he designed the Shape of Places geographic puzzle.
Unfortunately, Modin tells us he has run out of new places for us to visit, and he simply thanks everyone in Modin fashion.
The solution for Shape of Places No. 219 is Faroe Islands.
