  • Endgame : World War: Claims to be the first massively multiplayer online (MMO) strategy game on Google Maps. Take over the world in this real time Risk-like game.
  • Cycling in California: Nice Google Maps mashup showing a list of road bike events in CA. Map popups show ride profile graph and current weather.
  • HalloweenMashup.com: Mashup of Local Halloween Events. Google Maps, Yahoo News, Yahoo Local, Flickr, and Upcoming. Uses the HostIP API to auto-recognize where you're visiting from.
  • I Love Music Video: Music video viewer for Last.fm users. The music video can be seen from the chart of Last.fm very easily. Videos from YouTube.

One other note, over the past 14 days, 12 percent of new mashups here are using the YouTube API. That's 42 YouTube mashups.
