One fun game I like to play is to pair my map and compass with a GPS receiver. Just set the gps to the same coordinate reference system ( for USGS top that'd be UTM but check map for datum) then verify your measurements on the map periodically. It helps me to hone my map and compass skills, especially in rough terrain where getting off course is probable
