This paper presents the concept for community driven Location Based Games (LBG) that involve actively exploring and discovering public spaces similar to the characteristics seen in Geocaching. The game demonstrated in this paper attempts to utilise the motivations and overcome the limitations of existing Location Based Games. The focus is to outline the motivations for participation in user generated game play. The flexible nature of the concept provides the foundation for users to further develop the underlying principles that are initially provided and offer the opportunity for emergent behaviour.
