Learning About Fake News Through Play
Grounded in current research on news literacy and youth media practices, LAMBOOZLED! is a deck-building card game set in the fictional sheep town of Green Meadows — where, as the game’s tagline reads, “some news stories just want to pull the wool over your eyes!” Players must help the sheep citizens of Green Meadows figure out what’s true and what’s not, by using their best evidence to win them over. Now available through TC Press!
Here is a walkthrough of how to play the game:
