This paper discusses learning in cities through pervasive game activities. Taking into account that in modern cities information infrastructure becomes an indispensable asset, it is argued that new kinds of games facilitated by information infrastructure and mobile technologies are conductive to learning. We present examples of games played in urban environments and discuss various ways through which learning may take place during game play.
