No News Is Good News.
The podiums are up, the auditorium is decorated, now all the V.P. candidates need is an attentive nation – and maybe a Facebook friend or two to help them harvest the crops. Welcome to Farmville: the town that you thought was a flash game until last week! The obscure Virginia hamlet is an appropriate location for the candidates that we’ve heard almost nothing about. While the main contenders try to cover up their most recent indiscrepancies and vindictively tweet at each other through the night, it’s time for “Boring” Kaine and “B-List” Pence to have their brief and inconsequential moments in the sun.
Let’s face it, the V.P. Debate is hardly the social event of the campaign season. It’s unlikely that either Kaine or Pence will encourage people to look up sex tapes, accuse the other of being a Kenyan, or breathe heavily and creepily into the microphone for an hour and a half. Even the most die-hard political junkies will probably be paying more attention to their cellphones than CBS. It should be about as boring as watching digital crops grow.
With Weird Voyeurism’s Farmville Vice Presidential Debate Game, add some organic flavor to this bland discussion. First, print-off the candidate cards and the harvest sheet. Cut out the produce, and tune into the debate. As the candidates say the various phrases, move the fruit or vegetable to the candidate’s respective basket. Whoever has the biggest harvest by the end of the debate is the winner! Alright, the game’s not as entertaining as CandyCrush, but neither is the Farmville Vice Presidential debate.
