Debunked is a highly strategic card game of logic, reason and nonsense! There are two decks, one full of fallacious arguments, and the other full of everything else - which includes logic to debunk the arguments, ways to improve your hand (such as resurrecting a card from the discard pile), and, most importantly, ways to mess with your opponent (such as making them skip their go). It’s very simple to learn, but hard to master… like logic itself.
Hey, I’m Stephen Woodford, the man behind the YouTube channel Rationality Rules, and this game is my attempt to combine my two loves – reason and gaming. Debunked is first and foremost a thoroughly enjoyable and repeatable game, saturated with varying strategies and hilarious themes, but it’s also a fantastic tool for learning logic; the arguments are real, and so too are the fallacies they commit – hence, the logic cards genuinely can teach people a thing or two about valid argumentation (or at the very least remind them).
So if you’re into strategic card games, and/or you want to promote reason, rationality and logic, please help us make this game a reality.

Risks and challenges
With Debunked being a card game, the production is really quite simple: print the cards (at the highest possible quality), and create a super sexy box (at the highest possible quality). The real challenge for us would be if you significantly smash our goal – but if this happens don’t worry, as we have people and the means to ensure that everything will be produced on time. If you back this project, our main goal will be to get you the game as soon as possible, and that’s why we've kept the campaign simple by not offering t-shirts, books or a blow-up Socrates (though we may in the future!).Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
