Philipp Lenssen over at Google Blogoscoped created the somewhat addictive Yahoo Image Game. The premise is simple: it shows you 4 pictures, only 3 of which belong together, if you spot the exception, you win. Underneath the covers it uses the Yahoo Image Search API to dynamically get the images. Sometimes challenging simply because the images are resized but it's a clever way to create a 'dynamic content game' using web APIs and content.
