Dartmouth College

Dartmouth College is putting a political spin on the popular Pokemon Go game.

We’re just 15 days away from the presidential election. Researchers at the college developed the HillaryDonald Go app—it allows players to follow maps to find a candidate ‘booth’ near them, where a virtual Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump await.

Once at a booth--- it allows users to send their candidates ‘good vibes’ that allow them to grow in support.  

All players can see the running tally of points or good vibes for Clinton versus Trump, as they vie to flip the booth in favor of their candidate, the college said.

The college says the game can be played in nearly 1 million locations or booths in parks, libraries, monuments, cafes and other public places of local interest throughout all 50 states in the U.S.
