TBS’ Full Frontal with Samantha Bee is “gamifying” the 2018 midterm elections. Bee is working with some of the best minds in Silicon Valley to develop the non-partisan This is Not a Game: The Game gaming/voting app. Bee announced the project, which she says is in its early stages, during Turner’s upfront presentation Wednesday in New York City.
TINAG:TG is described by Bee as “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.”
“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.
TBS says This is Not a Game: The Game will culminate in a midterm episode of Full Frontal and hopefully not the end of democracy.
