Bei einem mehrtägigen Hackathon hat ein siebenköpfiges Team um Ricky Robinett mithilfe der Foursquare und der Google Maps API die Stadtkarte von New York in eines riesiges Spielfeld des Brettspiels Risiko umgewandelt.

Welcome to the World of Fourcraft

The World of Fourcraft is an adventure of Social Conquest™

The object of the game is to join forces with your Borough Buddies™ and swarm over and conquer the entirety of New York City.

There are no prizes. There are no celebrations. The only reward is the feeling of pride you normally only get from being re-tweeted.
How do you play?

1. Login into the World of Fourcraft site

2. Swear your allegiance to your favorite Borough

3. Incessantly check in on Foursquare, as you are want to do

4. Use our Battle Map to get the latest news on The Social Wars™
