Make a headline that says the contrary of the facts that are reported, but is still true.

This was a cold war joke:
There is a race between two athletes, one from the USA, one from the USSR. US athlete wins.
Prawda headline:
Our national hero won second place. US athlete came in only penultimate.

So this is what this game is about: try to present facts in a way that most people would understand exactly the contrary of what is being said, but without lying, still saying the truth.

Player 1 presents a situation
Player 2 makes a misleading headline out of it and presents a new situation for Player 3, etc.
