Would you like to build your own game?

It's easy!

Go to the GameBuilder and get started!

Topics of this game:
  • The act of verifying assertions either prior to publication or after dissemination of the content.
  • The rapid circulation of media from one user to another. When we forward sensational stories, often from social media without checking their credibility in other sources, we increase this.
  • The tendency to believe information is credible if it conforms to the reader’s/viewer’s existing belief system, or not credible if it does not conform.
  • When search tools present us with the stories we are likely to click on or share based on our past activity, potentially affirming our biases.
  • Which one is a theory that explains an event or set of circumstances as the result of a secret plot by usually powerful conspirators?
