What is the Switch?

The Switch is a game console

The Nintendo Switch is a game console that you can use at home on the couch, but also on the go if you are in the train, or if you are in the waiting room. With the Nintendo Switch you play your favorite game wherever you want: everywhere and with everyone. You can connect it to the TV and enjoy a big screen, but without TV it is also good to do. The 2 controllers can be used together or separately, they are called Joy-Con-controllers. The standard joy-con controllers are neon red and neon blue. Give a controller to a friend and go and play together. If you didn't ever have enough time to play a game and so had to stop, you'll get the idea of the Nintendo Switch: You need to adjust your OT, and you just take your game console on the go to continue where you left off.

What is Foursquare?

Foursquare is a location based Twitter

With FourSquare, users can share tips from location. It is about tips of the form: in this restaurant they have good food, in this café it is always too busy on Sunday afternoon, etc. Users of FourSquare get points for the tips, and also points for check-in at a location. Check-in is meant to indicate: I am now present at this location. The idea here is firstly that you can see your friends. So it is a website (with applications for your mobile phone) with three goals:

  1. Mobile Friends Viewfinder
  2. Tips for a city
  3. Game

The game element is thus in the points, and for certain actions you get a badge (this may be frequent check-in on a day, often leaving a tip, adding new locations, etc.). In this way the game element is thus as many points as possible, but also collect as many badges as possible. In America it is already normal, but Dutch companies are now playing in this. If you are mayor of a location, you can get free things. Check out the Snack square website to see the Dutch participants.
