I have 30 kids in a social studies/geography class, that are very
ambitious and interested in maps etc. and they need a place to play
make their own roads etc
Until they get the hang of it and the squabbles of who owns what roads
and what gets mapped and what doesn't, there are a few bullies and a few
that think everything is an "alternate reality" so I don't want them to
mess up the real OSM data. So since I have a bunch of hardware at my
disposal I thought I would setup a complete replacement that works the
same and we'd come up with a game or so to learn mapping and geography
one of my kids has written a small rpg that his classmates are enjoying
and I think it would be adaptable to a map game.
