Half Truth is a trivia game that is live on Kickstarter! This game was created by Richard Garfield who is known for some famous card games and Ken Jennings who is a historical Jeopardy player.

It is a game for 2-6 players that comes with 500 trivia question cards. Each card contains a category with 6 possible answers. The trick is, 3 of them are right and 3 of them are wrong! Players will bet on which answers they think are right. The game is designed to make people feel smarter than they think they are.

"A question card is drawn and read aloud, then placed so everyone can see it on the Half Truth square in the center of the board. Questions are all multiple choice, with 3 correct and 3 incorrect answers. The die is thrown to see how many spaces will be moved if a player answers the questions correctly. Each player simultaneously chooses an answer that they think is correct, by secretly selecting one of their answer tokens. All tokens are revealed, and stacked in the corresponding circles by the card. The card is then flipped over, revealing the 3 correct answers. "
