How Do You Play Two Truths and a Lie?


First, have all players sit in a circle.  Explain to all players that they need to come up with three statements about themselves.  Two are required to be true, and one must be a lie.  The order doesn’t matter.

Have the first player say all three statements.  The rest of the players guess and vote which one is the lie.  After the voting process, the player reveals which one is actually the lie.  The game continues in the same manner until all players share their statements.
