Two Truths And A Tale

A relaxed, icebreaker, circle game for small groups

Also known as: Two Truths and A Lie

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.

My kids came out of their shells and had fun! I was able to give this description to my leaders to explain to the kids and it went well.

Starting a young 13 to 18 year old youth. Needs more ideas to build relationships

When we played it the leader asked who wants to start? If nobody wanted to, the leader would start it. We learned about their likes and dislikes, how many is in their families, hobbies, etc. It opened good conversations that had not happened before. With a new group you need to suggest ideas for them and tell them to name something nobody knows about you.

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.

Posted by emily 12 years ago

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 !
