So right now you are being inundated with Election talk. There are a ton of commercials, some heated debates, and everything on Facebook from anyone 40 or over has something to do with the election. Of course everything on Twitter from people 20 and younger is making fun of the 40 and over crowd on Facebook.
So without mentioning either candidates name or endorsing one side or bashing the other, tell me what you have noticed so far about this election?
*Allow some talking time until they get around to the point where they say that the candidates just attack each other and don’t stick to the issues*

The other thing about the election cycle is that candidates can take any point and twist it until it fits what they want it to say. After the debates the news channels always go through Fact Checkers to determine whether something that was said is true or not. That leads me to this little game. I am going to tell you something and you will have to tell me whether or not it is fact or fiction.
*Take 5 or 10 of these facts and change half of them slightly and see if your group can guess fact or fiction*
