In this paper we consider a debate game between two players in which a player may provide false or inaccurate arguments as a tactic to win the game. We formulate a debate game using a formal argumentation framework and investigate situation where a player may provide dishonest arguments in the game. We also argue how a player can detect dishonest arguments of the opponent player.
