In this paper we present a geo-located game in connection with experiential learning, beginning with motivation, and outlining the gameplay and game mechanics. The game encourages collaborative exploration of the environment and facilitates production and sharing of stories and city experiences. We discuss our experience while play-testing the game. We then present the elaboration of virtual stories and the creation of a community wiki atlas. Lastly, we describe the status of the game, and its role in course-teaching
