4 Pinocchio's is an interactive game where truths and lies are presented and other players rate them by Pinocchios.

Mastering these techniques = You need a new career as life in politics may be your true calling!

The Pinocchio Rating System:

One Pinocchio
Some shading of the facts. Selective telling of the truth. Some omissions and exaggerations, but no outright falsehoods.

Two Pinocchios
Significant omissions and/or exaggerations. Some factual error may be involved but not necessarily.

Three Pinocchios
Significant factual error and/or obvious contradictions. This gets into the realm of "mostly false."

Four Pinocchios
Need I say more :)

The Geppetto Checkmark
Statements and claims that contain “the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth” will be recognized with our prized Geppetto checkmark.

An Upside-Down Pinocchio
A statement that represents a clear but unacknowledged “flip-flop” from a previously-held position.
