The "Mob" is a fun game, but the start time is very early.

Here is the late outing to help Bluelamb03 celebrate #3000.
Notice the "Mod" travelling amass and the bubbly in the pictures.

We have a similar game here in Ottawa. It's called 'GeoMob.' It supports ALL
makes and models of GPSRs. We too play a live-action adventure game by
following a pre-determined route and interacting with "virtual objects" and
players!! Plus, there's often champagne, wine, and munchies on the trail!

It looks like Groundspeak has put together a new game for us. So far,
the only GPSr units to officially support this is Garmin's new Colorado
and PocketPC handheld units.

The game is called Wherigo (http://www.wherigo.com). The premise is you
get to play a live-action adventure game by following a pre-determined
route and interacting with "virtual objects" and players. It looks like
a fancy, interactive virtual tour.

Of course there isn't anything available around here yet. I have a
couple ideas, but I wouldn't mind some help putting them together.
