geospatial gaming

2 bits of geospatial gaming news.

I have been hoping to find time to post something about ARIS geospatial games. Short of lengthy post, let me just say that it is an awesome platform for the iPhone that lets players explore real places while learning. Very cool and free!

A cool, free online game has been created call GeoGuessr. In just a few short weeks it has gotten covered by Slate, Foreign Policy and a NY Times blog. Best place-based spatial game of the year?

Both of these would be great ways to squander your holiday weekend.
