It’s mine! ALL MINE!
There’s a new game in town, and it fits in pretty well with the whole metblogs idea.
It’s called Urbantakeover, and it’s all about, well, taking over your town. In this case Vienna.
That doesn’t mean only Viennese can play it, it’s just been developed by some Viennese, and most of the players are there right now. Basically, all you have to do is tag. Print out some stickers, get your handle on them and go claim some space. Once it’s yours, you can SMS the info and get some points. The website tracks your success, and lets you know if you have been crossing others who are playing the game.
Fans of Rand can go it alone, or you can join teams to increase your standings as a group.
I’m not too sure the whole idea of stickering up the landscape will play too well with local authorities if it ever catches on, but until that happens, or some other means of tagging is considered (geotagged flickr photos anyone?) it will just have to do.
