Description

This educational game can be used in a variety of ways. It was developed with an eye towards taking your iPhone into a lecture by someone who is talking about topics like creationism, anti-vaccination, or alternative medicine.

Most of what they tend to say are old canards that have already been debunked (for years). Use this game to see how tired their arguments are!

When you hear something that is on the bingo board, simply click the tile and an 'X' will appear. 5 in a row and you can go ahead and feel free to yell out BINGO! letting everyone in the audience know that old arguments have been repeated so often that you were able to win.

More importantly, and the real reason you should download this game, is that the rebuttals to the arguments are presented in the game. Hit the info button, and the tile will flip over revealing information about the claim, the reasons why its wrong, clickable links to websites that go into even further detail than what is given in the game, and so on. Use this information to craft good questions for the speaker after the lecture. The Q/A session is the time when you can demonstrate how poorly supported the argument is.

The game is free because I want people to be able to play the game. Many people know the rebuttals already. However access to the info button is a required purchase. It takes a lot of work to put these together and I need some cash to provide upcoming features and styling. Your combined purchases will go mostly to improving and strengthening the skeptical community.

Current Features:

Evolution Game

Access to information about 30 creationist claims

Updates and new games will not cost additional money. Your one time payment pays for the access to the information button, which will work from then on.
