Full Frontal with Samantha Bee Announces This is Not a Game: The Game

TBS’ Emmy® Award-winning late-night series Full Frontal with Samantha Bee is pleased to announce it is gamifying* the 2018 midterm elections. Samantha Bee, who totally knows what coding means, is working with some of the best minds in Silicon Valley to develop the non-partisan This is Not a Game: The Game game. TINAG:TG is a heart-pounding, prize-stuffed turducken of a trivia game in which average citizens play to the death OR win kick-ass prizes, not sure which. We’re waiting to hear back from our lawyers.

America’s dismal midterm election turnout SUCKS and we are 100% certain this game will solve everything. Full Frontal is not sure why this responsibility has been left to late-night hosts but is up for the challenge.

Bee, who is in the early stages of developing the game, says it will be similar to [insert game she hasn’t heard of] with elements of [other game she hasn’t heard of]. “I’m so excited to be working with some of the best nerds to create this game,” said Bee. “Plus, I promised my kids I would meet the creators of Fruit Nibblers. That really needs to happen.”

This is Not a Game: The Game will be available later this summer for free download in the Apple and Android app stores. All civic-minded people are required by law to play the game for individual daily prizes. Non-civic-minded people are also encouraged to play. Lest any college-aged voter be overlooked, Sam and her bus (you remember our bus right?!) will travel to universities all over the country to register voters, tailgate, and just generally to “hang” with the “youth.” If the idea of a functioning democracy is not enough of an incentive to vote, the chance to win a free burrito certainly is, so we’re just going to go with it.

This is Not a Game: The Game will culminate in a midterm episode of Full Frontal and hopefully not the end of democracy.
