I am amazed at how popular this game is, and I know that I am not alone there. I heard that the stock for Nintendo jumped about 20 percent when the game came out, and for a company that large that is a huge spike, so that just really tells you something. On top of that, it is a free app, which makes it an even stronger case. It is an interesting little phenomenon…thanks for sharing.
