Sergio Mendez-Baiges (MSI ’08), Eric Garcia, Jeremy Canfield, and Benjamin Malley developed the game that uses the real world as the game board. You can interact with friends, acquaintances, and potentially strangers from all over the globe. You can get it free now (it won’t be free forever, they say) and in return, offer the developers comments at firstname.lastname@example.org. They also have a blog where you can follow along as things change.
