We wanted to build a game that you can play while waiting for a train or tram and has some competitive aspects to keep your brain active. Also we liked the idea of playing with nearby players that you might know.
What it does
We declared some landmarks and points of interests (train stations, libraries, etc.) as arenas. As you enter the proximity of an arena, you can join in. In the arena you can play mini-games and puzzles to gain points and get to the top of the arena leaderboard. Currently only Sudoku is implemented as single-player and co-op game. Adding games like battleships or mastermind should be quite easy as well.
How I built it
Built with Meteor using Bootstrap for the UI and MongoDB for storage.
Challenges I ran into
Map integration, Multiplayer, Time
