Two Truths and A Lie

The object of this small group game is to reveal unknown things about yourself to the group in a fun atmosphere.

A person states three things about himself. Two must be true and one a lie. For example: "I was born in South Africa. I have a green card. I have a dog named Bubba."

The others in the group try to guess which statement is the lie. If a player guesses correctly, they earn a point. If no one guesses correctly, the individual earns five points. Each person should get a chance to share.

NOTE: For really big groups, break up into smaller groups of about 15-20.

The Point: Getting to know you.

This is a classic. I probably play this game with my small group the second or third meeting of every year. It's another one of those games that gets kids used to sharing about themselves. (plus... it's really fun)

This one is a classic and still works pretty well (if not used too often). It worked best for us, though, as a get to know the leaders game in front of everyone. We had teams send their leader up and the other groups tried to guess the lie.
