We told you people are basically playing that game everywhere.

Well, from the Marketplace Desk of Too Much of a Good Thing these updates:

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is warning people not to play the game while driving:

Because c’mon.

Also,the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC has had to ask people not to play there.
