Play God Day – January 9th
Tired of people telling you they can’t stand your “God complex”? Well, today is your day to let that personality flaw shine like a heavenly light!
January 9th is an exceptionally obscure, obscure holiday…Play God Day. While I was unable to ascertain exactly what Play God Day means, I have some suggestions on how to celebrate it.
Suggested game: Pocket God
I remember when this game came out five years ago. Developed by Bolt Creative, Pocket God allows you to…well…play God. You’re given an island, some pygmies, and you can choose to be kind, or creatively cruel. The game is available on iOS, Android, Windows Phone and Facebook.
Suggested movie: Bruce Almighty, starring Jim Carrey
In Bruce Almighty, Bruce Nolan (Carrey) blames God for all of his problems and goes into a fit of rage. God (Morgan Freeman) decides to step aside and see if Bruce can do his job better. It’s a cheesy movie, but what more would you expect from Jim Carrey?
Or you could skip the games and movies and just do whatever you think God would do for a day. Be kind to your friends, do nice things for others, forgive someone for something you’ve been holding onto way too long. And if you believe God is evil, go out and stomp on some ants* or something. It’s your day, have fun!
*Please note that we at The Mommy Gamers do not condone violence against ants or anything else. Not much anyway.
