How about a game of GPS battleships?

I’ve got this idea for a game. The idea is that we get a whole bunch of folks together that have Windows Mobile 5.0 devices with GPS recievers to play “battleships” within a certain geographical area.

We woud load on a little compact framework application that would feed regular position updates to a central location on the web over GPRS or 3G and the same client application would allow people to “request a strike” at a certain set of GPS co-ordinates. There would be a set blast radius and anyone within that radius would be “sunk”.

Last person still floating wins.

The game could also be enhanced with different “weapons” that are triggered when people enter a certain area (radar traps etc). I wonder if we could get enough people together in Canberra with the right equipment to play.
