Just Like A Lotto Scratcher!: World Map Allows Travelers To Scratch Off All The Countries They've Visited

May 6, 2015


This is the I Was Here Scratch-Off World Map 2.0 from Art Lebedev Studios. The map costs $30 and all the countries are covered with a silver paint that you can scratch off with a coin after you've visited. Or you can just scratch them all off at once because you just wanted a regular world map and don't know how to search Amazon. How many countries have you visited? I have visited all the countries. But only in my dreams, in real life I never leave my apartment and would have already starved to death if somebody hadn't invented BlueApron.

Keep going for a shot of the whole map unscratched and scratched.



Thanks to Tim, who told me he's never traveled further than 300 miles from home. What are you on a long chain or something? Should I send help?!

  • I love this idea! I would like a world scratch off map but would also like a US map so that I can scratch off the states I have visited; I believe it's 17 and counting. http://e-scratchgames.com

    Antarctica looks like a bitch to scratch off.

    I've had one of these for years now. Scratch Map was the original.

    Would be nicer if they used a correct map.

  • In what way is it not correct?

    In this map, Greenland is the size of Africa. When in reality, Africa is over 10x bigger than Greenland. And Russia is actually about half the size of Africa. Just to name a couple.

    This is the perfect gift for parents; guarantee the whole thing gets scratched in some emo fit w/in a week. If they have several kids - there will be the ONE kid who really wants to not scratch things until they visit and then the asshole kid who will have to scratch everything while the other kid(s) cry and scream "Now you RUINED IT!"

    I'd love one of these for just the U.S., to scratch off each state I've visited.

    I only visit countries in Hollow Earth. So this map is absolutely worthless.

  • Gene Kaufman

    And how do I scratch off Sealand?
