City Council votes to ban highly addictive mobile game, citing concerns


tricky trip

The highly addictive mobile game Tricky Trip has been compared to Pokemon Go.

Interesting times right now in Des Moines, Washington. The city council is working tirelessly to stop access to the mobile game, citing several concerns.

 

games are “spreading” and the perceived problems aren’t just going to go away.

People distracted while they are walking, while they are driving and so just for safety’s sake

The City Council recently held a meeting.

The council agreed unanimously to request to “opt out” of the game at all public places and parks in Des Moines.

But it’s safe to say that so far this vote/request hasn’t worked at all

“This is not the end, this is just the beginning”

“We’ve not had a response one way or another”

Does a city have the right to ban what games you can play?
