Classic nerd stuff. Ars summed up the experience quite nicely in its conclusion, "Wave has enough potential that it may be the Internet's best chance yet for superseding the pen-and-paper RPG experience.

Other uses include funny "Pulp Fiction" and "Good Will Hunting" mashups. The "Pulp Fiction" one, in particular, is hysterical in its attempt to explain what on earth Google Wave can be used for. It succeeds more as entertainment than any actual informative value, though.
