Gaming with Google Maps

Ever wondered what you can get up to armed only with a map of the world and a game idea? These game mashups use Google Maps in some pretty exciting ways, from a scavenger hunt to an online golf game.

Some of them are fairly old, but they encompass a range of possibilities. If you're inspired to create your own, the site also has a list of possible ideas for Google Maps-fuelled antics; Risk and GPS-based games seem more obvious than "The World of Kingdom of Loathing". Some really cool collaborations could spring forth from here.
