I think the "games" are very helpful for geo classification.  Meta data links are a monte carlo integration.  The further you step back to include more identifiers the less discriminating the identifiers become, and some may be ignored, or replaced with an unlinked generic substitution.  The worldview of a Football Fan and a Government Policy Wonk don't begin the same, but they can end with the same organization.

I really liked the SmartCities idea.

I guess I was reaching a bit there :)

I think it's just a fun project at the moment.  But you never know how things will develop, look at the explosion of minecraft.  Also written by one of the top linked data experts in the world ... so you can only hope! :)

One thing that I think could be really good is if inked geo browser (also aksw) were somehow gamified.
