The 2018 midterm elections are almost upon us that will include hundreds of congressional, state and local primaries on November 6th 2018. One of the main question on voters mind during the general election is whether Democrats can gain control of Congress or if Republicans will keep their hold on the legislative branch. Given the latest developments throughout Washington its hard to say.
To encourage voters to vote during midterm elections Samantha Bee from Full Frontal has launched a political trivia App with cash prizes up to $5k! The App is called “This is NOT a Game” and can be downloaded from the Apple Store or Google Play.
THIS IS NOT A GAME APP is a daily trivia game with a cash prize of up to $5,000 with the purpose of getting people excited about voting. For those that download the app once a day they will get the chance to answer 10 multiple choice questions about the midterms, current events and very important facts about democracy. If a player gets every question right and they’ll win cash from the daily jackpot, split with the other winners (#winning).
How does THIS IS NOT A GAME APP work?
- Join the game every day when you get a push notification—usually at 7pm EDT and 4pm PDT.
- Answer 10 funny trivia questions while the clock counts down!
- Win real cash by answering all 10 questions right.
- Winners split the daily jackpot of $1K to $5K
- Got a question wrong? You can keep playing if you have extra lives.
- Get extra lives by signing up for election reminders, inviting friends, and completing weekly challenges.

We decided to check out the new app to see how easy the app is to download and set-up. It’s was pretty simple especially if you have a Facebook account. I personally just downloaded it today and haven’t played a game yet but the main message of this all is to vote on November 6th! We have got to make a change one way or another.
Why did Full Frontal make this game?
Per their site, verbatim, “It’s to get people excited about the midterms, maybe even excited enough that they’ll go out and vote! America’s typical midterm election turnout SUCKS and we are 100% certain this game will solve everything. We want America to learn facts, register to vote, and get involved in the U.S. election process. Isn’t that beautiful? Don’t answer. We know it is. All civic-minded people are required by law to play the game for a chance to win a cash prize. Non-civic-minded people are also encouraged to play.”
We are hopeful the THIS IS NOT A GAME APP will increase voters and acknowledgment of the mid-term elections. Kuddo’s to Samantha Bee and Full Frontal for bringing attention to the mid-term 2018 elections happening on November 6th.
