History is filled with fascinating people and events. Our latest interactive story game is called Fake History. Despite the name, the game’s intent isn’t to spread fake news or false historical facts. Instead the game tests your knowledge of real historical events.
The challenge comes from having to choose between three history books, all of which seem to contain a plausible story. But only one of the books tells the real story about what actually happened.
Over the past few weeks, we’ve been happy to watch more players discover our fun history game. We recently added a challenge related to the Greek philosopher Socrates. You might know a little about him. He was known for his argumentative style of teaching. Instead of lecturing his students, he engaged them in dialogue, asking probing questions designed to uncover weaknesses in their logic.
You might also know that Socrates didn’t die a natural death. But do you know why? What crime was he convicted of committing? Ask Alexa to “play Fake History” to delve more deeply into the fascinating world of historical figures, events, and places.
