Did you get caught up in the craze, too? Although, it seems that Pokemon Go might be one of those instant-instantly-dead fads, if reports are to be believed.
Not quite every country in the world went Pokemon hunting, either. In Belgium, a high school teacher was inspired by Pokemon Go to build another virtual hunting game called Chasseurs de livres (“Book hunters”). Yes, they’re hunting books. Not via a handheld device, though. They have a Facebook page where the game is coordinated and scored.
Over 40,000 Belgians signed up for the book hunting game in the first month.
Which is interesting, from my perspective. I sell more books in Belgium than in any other non-English speaking country. It seems Belgium is a very literature-oriented country!
