Seems to me that the problem you propose has been solved in Euclidean geometry by *not using the entire plane*. Why wouldn't this work in hyperbolic geometry?

hm, neato.  The immediate issue I see is: there aren't many games

but in reality you probably won't use more than 8x8.

Yes, new games, hiding somewhere in those infinite vertices.
