Most people don't go looking for graffiti, but with his 'FlashInvaders' game, the renowned French street artist Invader wants to turn the activity into a street art game. Part of the reason street artists go to the trouble of creating their artworks outside is so that the public will see it. To egg people on to keep their eyes peeled, Invader's game has people earn points by snapping pictures and posting them to an online gallery, which becomes filled as they hunt each art piece down.

Rather than being collected in a museum, this is an interesting way to curate a grouping of street art online, since the only way it may ever live on is through random images scattered across the Internet. Stats for Graffiti-Hunting Games Trending: This Quarter & Warm
