T-Rex: I'm going to write an app that gamifies
T-Rex: CHESS!
T-Rex: You can spend real money to get "gold coins" and then spend them to level up pieces, buy extra turns, and get booster packs!
T-Rex: Also there's an augmented reality component.
Utahraptor: Uh.
T-Rex: You find new pieces in the wild and can catch them with chessballs that you buy!
Utahraptor: Chess is ALREADY a game.
T-Rex: Oh.
T-Rex: Oooh! Better idea!
T-Rex: I'll gamify CHEESE!

Yes, that does involve cheeseballs.

Inspired by watching a friend play an app that gamified backgammon, so I actually wouldn't be surprised if an app that does this already exists. Chess, that is, not cheese. If anyone gamifies cheese, definitely let me know.
