Number of rounds in a game as a setting

This suggestion relates to an old post (https://kundo.se/org/geoguessr/d/more-rounds-in-a-game/), but seeing how many people replied to it in the past few weeks, I think it is still very relevant and deserves more visibility.

The idea is to be able to change the number of rounds in a game or challenge (5 by default). Several use cases have been shared (feel free to reply with some more):
- geography lessons at school
- custom maps with 6 to <100 locations for one-shot games with friends/family/community
- easier streak record attempts

This idea apparently has been in the backlog for years, but devs seem to think too few people are concerned, and I tend to disagree. I personally became a Pro member precisely for making private custom maps for my friends.

Besides, I'm almost certain that this feature can be developed quite quickly and easily, and as a developer I'd be glad to help for free if there was a forkable git repo...

Thanks and have a nice day

  • Clarification about why 5-round games are not good for custom maps with <100 locations: it's almost impossible to play every single location on such maps without encountering tens of repetitions of already played locations.

  • I'd like to see these changes implemented as well. Manual control of how many rounds per map and seeing all locations per map, instead of random locations and seeing repeats.
