This is one of our team building ideas where the team will get to know each other in a new way. During the exercise everyone tells three stories. Two stories really happend and one story is made up.

De listeners don’t know which of these stories is the made up one and try to guess after the three stories have been told.

The group will get to know each other in a new way because they get to share extraordinary stories in a playful manner.

In this Team building Ideas exercise you can apply variations:

  1. You can let the participants tell one long story instead of three short ones in which the story starts as truth but slowly develops in a story that’s not true. When the story has finished the participants guess at what point the story became fiction.
  2. Instead of letting people tell to real stories and one made up story you can also make them tell two made up stories and one real story. The team has to guess which story is the real one.
  3. In case you want to use this exercise as an energizer or you just don’t have much time you can replace stories in this exercise with personality traits. Someone will call out 3 personality traits he has of which one is not true. The listeners then try to guess which trait is the one the speaker doesn’t seem to identify with.
