What is Two Truths and a Lie?

Two Truths and a Lie is a popular icebreaker game often played in social settings, team-building activities, or as a get-to-know-you exercise. The objective of the game is for participants to share two true statements and one false statement about themselves, while the other players attempt to identify which statement is the lie.

Here’s how to play Two Truths and a Lie:

  • Gather participants – The game can be played with as few as three people, but it’s more engaging with larger groups.
  • Explain the rules – Each participant will take turns sharing three statements about themselves – two of which are true, and one that is a lie. The order of the statements does not matter.
  • Share statements – When it’s a participant’s turn, they will share their two truths and a lie with the group. It’s essential for the person to keep a straight face and not give away the lie through non-verbal cues.
  • Guess the lie – After the participant shares their statements, the other players will try to identify which statement is false. They can ask questions or discuss amongst themselves, but the person who shared the statements should not provide any additional information.
  • Reveal the lie – Once everyone has had a chance to guess, the participant reveals which statement was the lie. This often leads to surprise or laughter, as well as an opportunity for the person to share a brief backstory related to the true statements.
  • Rotate turns – Continue playing until everyone has had a chance to share their two truths and a lie.

Two Truths and a Lie is a fun and engaging way to learn more about others, break the ice in social situations, or foster teamwork and camaraderie in group settings. The game encourages active listening, critical thinking, and helps participants discover common interests or surprising facts about one another.
