So yes, the hectic Pokemon Go craze has come and gone and the hype surrounding this little game has died down significantly. The benefits of playing the game, however, have not. When this game cam out I must admit that it was easy to get addicted to all the feel-good stories surrounding its launch. So many people came forward to confess that the game had gotten them out of the house because the geo-location aspects mean that sitting on your couch is not really an option if you want to progress at all. If you haven’t tried the game yet: do. Even if it’s just for a weekend. You see, it makes you walk. Ad it makes you walk a LOT. I remember hearing how so many people had actually started losing weight because of this little game, and all because they were hunting little critters.
In Port Elizabeth, the best places to play the game are at The Donkin Reserve, The Boardwalk, and St. George’s Park as these three places mean that you can walk around a lot but also accomplish a lot in the game at the same time.
I won’t lie, the game is addictive, but it’s a sort of silly fun addictive that will most likely wear off at some point. Just have fun with it while it lasts.
And the best part? You can play it as a family and have a lot of fun doing it. All without ever feeing like you’re in the middle of the gruelling task of “exercising”.
