Small Group Icebreakers

Two Truths and a Lie

Everyone think of two things about yourself that no one in the group knows. They don’t have to be embarrassing or personal . . . we’re going to share them with the group. They can be just random facts about yourself like, “I owned a poodle when I was a kid.” Or something that happened, like, “When I was seven I was in a car accident where our car flipped over.” Or something simple, but obscure, like, “I get up every morning at 6:15 so I can beat the rest of my family to the shower and get the hot water!”

Now think of a realistic lie about yourself.

Got em’? Two truths and a lie?

We’re now going to go around the circle and share our “three facts about ourselves.” Two of them are real. One is false.

After each person shares all three, we’ll stop and vote (by a raise of hands) on which we think is the lie. The person will then confess the lie and see how many people they stumped. Then on to the next person . . . and so on.
