"First game up, Distraction News!"

"Distraction News on the air in 3, 2, 1..."


Distraction News is a "stay focused" game. In this segment, Dora Smarmy, your "favorite" cardboard cutout anchorperson, talks about a topic while some nonsensical distractions try to keep you from listening. After she's done, she asks 5 multiple choice questions about the topic she just discussed.

Dora will then conclude the segment with "Don't let anything distract you from watching Distraction News".

This is the only game in which ALL the answers needed are provided, with no outside knowledge necessary.
