We play as a family. My partner and I often go out, the two of us, to defeat gyms and participate in raids together. It’s given us a new activity to share and helped us get out of the house more. We take my daughter along too, and she thinks it’s cool her mom still wants to go play a video game out in the world. To me, that’s the only opinion that really matters here.

One of our favorite places to go is our local state capitol complex. We see more than two dozen regulars there, including a woman in her 80s who lights up our “sweet spot” (a convergence of four Pokestops) with lures late each evening for the players hanging out, even if she hasn’t brought her kids, grandkids or great grandkids that night.
