I think the Bird Hunt game has a lot of potential. Incidentally, you may have wondered whatever happened to SVG (scalable vector graphics). Jon Udell happens to have a relevant article on just this subject.

Remember SVG? The acronym stands for Scalable Vector Graphics. In a posting to the xml-dev mailing list back in 2000, XML co-inventor Tim Bray said: “SVG is going to change the face of the Web.” If that prediction had come true, we’d have used SVG to visualize the results of the recent election. Instead, as Macromedia’s (Profile, Products, Articles) Chief Software Architect Kevin Lynch noted on his Weblog, the election was closely divided, but developers voted overwhelmingly to use Flash for interactive maps, dynamic tables, and live charts.
