Ratings and Reviews
Should Be Required Reading for Everyone
As a lifelong journalism enthusiast, even I have been taken by fake news on the internet. This game is a great way to fine tune your critical thinking skills while staying on top of current events. It should be required reading for everyone but especially younger kids in high school. HIGHLY recommend!
This is super smart. Love it.
