Pokemon Go! Killer

Alright, you got me. I played Pokemon Go like there was no tomorrow for about a day. I have something like a hundred and twenty pokemon since my last count. But those days are over. I actually broke out the GBA and Saphire just for the prosperity of it.

Now there is a new game on the market, and it comes out of Belgium.

A Belgian primary school headmaster has developed an online game for people to search for books instead of cartoon monsters, attracting tens of thousands of players in weeks. Players post pictures and hints about where they have hidden a book and others go to hunt them down. Once someone has finished reading a book, they “release” it back into the wild.

“While I was arranging my library, I realized I didn’t have enough space for all my books. Having played Pokemon Go with my kids, I had the idea of releasing the books into nature,” Gregoire told Reuters.

Though it was only set up a few weeks ago, more than 40,000 people are already signed up to Gregoire’s Facebook group.

If you need help creating the app you know where to find me.
