How To Play Two Truths And A Tale

For this great get to know you game, each person must make three statements about themselves, one of which isn't true.

For example: I have two brothers, I was born in Australia, I have a motorcycle.

This works best when you give the group some time to think of their statements, and write them down if they need.

Once one person makes their statements, the rest of the group must guess, or vote on, which statement is the tale. You could play as a team, or individually. It could work well to get each group member to write down their own answers and see who gets the most correct.

i am a child and youth care practitoner it was hard at first for me to get to know my youths at first, but after playing this game with them it was so awesome they all opened up because of this game. i think friends and family should play this game sometimes its really fun and you can communicate well with people around you that you dont know them that well and this game breaks the ice and it helps. GREAT GAME !

Can you give me a detailed version for this game. If i were to leave it for someone to play, they would be able to relay it back to the children.

this is a great game! I used it in a small group meeting and it was an instant hit. I actually played this game with someone Im dating and we had many laughs. This game can be played with any group size.
