Default Fess up... who is playing Pokémon GO?

The title says it all really. I figure there must some folks stateside or otherwise playing it already!

I was only vaguely curious until yesterday when I got caught up in the online madness & saw some game play as well finding out it was free.

Eagerly awaiting the UK launch now. Decided just to wait rather using a workaround to get it early.

The first signs it might available soon are appearing as it has just launched in Germany.

I think a significant proportion of players are adults... people like me who were into Pokemon when it was first a craze.

I think it remains to be seen how long or short lived the current craze will be.

Not officially available in Canada, though there are ways of getting around it.

I actually spoke to the DQ franchise owner on the corner of my street. Apparently there is a pokemon in his parking lot; and, it's been great for business.

i checked it out because people that I know are playing it. did not like it. sure its fun and all but walking around my neighborhood focused on my cell phone waiting for a pokemon character to show up on my screen is not my form of entertainment. not to mention the danger element that when you log on \enter your game anyone else in the city can see the other players. there are many reports starting to show up on news casts and other media stating this game is causing people to get hurt, mugged and victims of other crimes. because people are waiting for others to show up looking for their pokemon to throw the ball at and harming those that show up. there are also many reports of people walking into traffic, slamming into walls\ street signs\ street poles and even ending up in trespassing on other peoples properties, getting arrested because the home owners dont know who that person is walking around their back yards, looking in the shadows, in windows basically looking like they are casing the homes for a break in.

I have caught many people going through my back and front yards and the police are beginning to know me and my wife by name. we are in the process of installing a locked gate \fencing for protection and privacy from this game and people we do not know feeling like they can walk up to our home and point their cell phones in our windows around our lawns and gardens, porches...its pretty sad that there is a cell phone game out there that allows people to invade other peoples property and privacy and the home owners have to resort to fencing\gating in their property from this.

I deleted the game off my cell phone and will never use it again.

My BFF had to pick her teenage son up after he was picked up for trespassing Remember to be smart when you are playing it and don't go after the Pokemon no matter what

You'd think being older I'd be more measured but I think after all the hype, logical thinking may momentarily go out the window!
