Move over 'Pokemon Go,' 'Chardonnay Go' is here for moms

"Pokemon Go" is the latest craze in modern gaming and smart phone entertainment.

The augmented reality game encourages players to get up and get out as the app directs them to public areas where Pokemon characters can be obtained for points. 

GPS information is collected from users' phones to identify surrounding areas and landmarks around users where the Pokemon may be collected.

But comedian Dena Blizzard is encouraging a new kind of game -- one very similar to "Pokemon Go," but perhaps for another demographic. 

In a parody video, Blizzard explains that "Chardonnay Go" is an app for mothers and other women to find free glasses of chardonnay "all over your neighborhood."

In one scene, Blizzard, who roams around her neighborhood on foot and by car to beat other women to the wine, enters a homeowner's house without her permission to snag a glass. The scene pokes fun at numerous stories of "Pokemon Go" players, who have found themselves in unorthodox situations while playing the game. 

The video has been viewed more than 20 million times on Facebook.
