Urban space as a large-scale group playground

In this paper, I describe CitiTag, a research project aiming to explore the potential of spontaneous social behaviour and playful group interaction in public spaces through the use of mobile technologies. I discuss briefly the idea and motivating themes, the design of CitiTag, a wireless location based multiplayer game and findings from two user studies.
