OVERVIEW OF TWO TRUTHS AND A LIE: RETIREMENT EDITION
Two Truths And A Lie is a classic icebreaker game present at most parties. But put a retirement party twist on it by only spouting truths and lies about the retiree! This is a fun game to play that will get everyone sharing stories by the end of it.
GAMEPLAY OF TWO TRUTHS AND A LIE
All players sit in a circle and take turns telling three stories or statements starring the retiree. Two of these stories/statements must be true, and one must be false. Examples of stories/statements one could share include:
- The retiree’s favorite color is blue.
- The retiree is a dog person but has owned cats.
- One random rainy day, the retiree once slipped on the sidewalk, causing a domino effect that tripped over two other passersby.
When the first player tells two true stories and one false story in any order, every other player must try to figure out which of the stories/statements is false. At the count of three, all players must put their fingers up according to the story/statement that they believe to be false. So, if a player believes story/statement 2 is false, they would put 2 fingers up. If they believe story/statement 3 is false, they would put 3 fingers up.
The player must then reveal which of the stories/statements is false. The next player in the circle then gets a turn to tell two truths and a lie. And so on.
END OF GAME
There isn’t really a winner in this game, but it’s possible to determine a winner by counting the number of people who get the answer wrong at each turn. The player that fools the most people wins the game!
