When I read about the launch of Yahoo! Bus Stop Derby, the touch screen bus shelter games in key neighbourhoods throughout San Francisco, my first thought was: Why not here in Victoria?
Communities compete against each other head-to-head playing trivia games and puzzles available on the shelters’ full-sized screens.
The competition lasts a month or two and then the winning neighbourhood gets a concert with a decent-ish band.
Can’t you picture the Vic West Sustainablists taking on the Oak Bay Tea Partiers? Bus shelter smack down in #YYJ!
My only gripe is that the Downtown Victoria team would need to be labeled The Downtown Trolls Who Hang Out In Front of the Bay Centre and Look Like Survivors From a Post Apocalyptic Halloween Party.
Would you play if it was in your neighbourhood?
