Truth, Truth, Lie
Instructions: Have everyone sit in a circle. Each person prepares three statements, two of which are true and one of which is a lie. In any order, the person shares the three statements to the entire group. The object of the game is to figure out which statement a lie. The rest of the group votes on each statement, and the person reveals which one is the lie.
Variation: Two Truths and a Dream Wish. As an interesting variation to the classic Two Truths and a Lie icebreaker, people may also play a version called Two Truths and a Dream Wish. Instead of stating a lie, a person says something that is not true — yet something that they wish to be true. For example, someone that has never been to Hawaii might say: “I have visited Hawaii when I was young.” This interesting spin often leads to unexpected, fascinating results, as people often share touching wishes about their lives.
A Staff Variation:
Then we segued into the fact that we all had certain events in life in-common.
- We were all born naked.
- For the first three months we did the big three (eat, sleep, fill our diaper).
There is another event that we will have in common - that is we will all die, the only question is when.
- There are no guarantees that any of us will leave this house alive, but probability is that we all will.
- Most of you will probably be alive 30 years from now.
- I probably will not be.
Question: At your funeral how do you want people to remember you (such as your parents, friends, siblings, children that you don’t have yet etc.)?
- Share three things you would like them to remember.
- One of these things needs to be humorous.
- Who is the audience to whom you are playing your life … folks at office, family, etc.
- Are you living like you want to be remembered?
- What happens to you after you die?
