The Pinocchio Game is a fun way to test your political knowledge (and your memory skills). The game presents you with a quote, you select the rating, and discover the answer once you submit. You can read an explanation for the correct rating, and optionally read the full article. The app keeps track of your score and will either congratulate or admonish you at the end of the game. When you finish a game, your score is saved to a wall of previous games. At any time, you can revisit past games and share your scores with your friends. With a constantly updating database of questions, the game will never get boring.
