Samantha Bee is launching a 2018 midterm elections-themed game that TBS calls a “heart-pounding, prize-stuffed turducken.” 

The “Full Frontal” host — who regularly zings President TrumpDonald John TrumpSchiff: Surveillance warrant docs show that Nunes memo 'misrepresented and distorted these applications' Chicago detention facility under investigation following allegations of abuse of migrant children Ex-Trump aide: Surveillance warrants are 'complete ignorance' and 'insanity' MORE on her late-night show — is releasing “This is Not a Game: The Game” with an eye on this November.

“America's dismal midterm election turnout SUCKS and we are 100 percent certain this game will solve everything,” TBS said in a Wednesday announcement about the game.

The competition will be a “a trivia game in which average citizens play to the death OR win kick-ass prizes, not sure which,” the network added.

The game, which is still in development, is expected to be available for free later this summer on Apple and Android devices.

A TBS spokeswoman tells ITK that Bee's game aims to “engage and encourage people to vote in the midterm elections.”

“All civic-minded people are required by law to play the game for individual daily prizes. Non-civic-minded people are also encouraged to play,” TBS said.

Bee will also be traveling to universities across the country to register voters ahead of the Nov. 6 vote.

“If the idea of a functioning democracy is not enough of an incentive to vote,” a statement said, “the chance to win a free burrito certainly is, so we're just going to go with it.”
