Everyone tells a little white lie now and again, but with this game you can call them on it. A great ice breaker game, giving your guests plenty to talk about, it will really get the party started.
When your guests have all arrived and are seated have each guest introduce herself and then tell the group three things about herself — two are true, one is a lie. The rest of the guests must each guess which statement was the false one. After each guest has placed her “bet” on which was the lie, the “liar” must confess to and reveal which it was. Sometimes this game can get a little naughty, so be sure if it’s not appropriate, to lay down some ground rules first to keep things clean.
You will be surprised how often the true statements are more outrageous then the actual lies, and it creates perfect opportunities for story swapping and getting to know each other.
Some guests may be shy, so when it’s there turn advise them to just choose 3 “themed” statements. For example, “My first car was a white Honda, My first apartment I had 8 roommates, and My first job was a donut taster.”
