Truths and Lie - Strategies
Look for outrageous truths and then something simple for the lie (Idea 3 or 2)
Try to keep all statements around the same level in terms of believability.
Pick a good lie that seems like a lie but can't be the lie because it is too obvious.
Play with facts a bit switch the names of places for example Burger king might not sell be my favorite cookie but MacDonald does. (Example #1).
Start with a simple truth then an outrageous truth, then a simple lie so the second truth seems like the lie (Example #1).
Choose a lie that could be true.
Mix up these strategies as you play more rounds

This game is for a fact one of the most enjoyable experiences I've had with my wife on an overseas trip.
Two facts: We actually played and texted for almost an hour the first time. It is also true that I beat her! In the game of course. We still play occasionally.
To be honest, have never heard of this game. The website does let me know quickly what you are about, that is a big plus. It easy to play and use, another plus. Well laid out, essay to navigate, all in all, a good site.
Yes, loved loved this game. One of those games that make you think can be tricky, those intellectual types games with a twist according to the category you choose. I like playing this game on a cool Sunday evening, as it keeps my brain busy while relaxing, I like the fact that you can add some of your own truths and lie also. I say to the makers, add some content, let us have some funn!
My boyfriend always guessed my false statements accurately. When in reality I wasn't actually lying. So a win for me!
I got so many wrong the first time playing with my GF. I think she was teasing me. Don't worry as of today I passed her high score!
I played two true and lie with a single friend recently. I did not realize we knew so much about each other probably clogged your database with our history. Admittedly Maria's untruths were pretty easy to figure out.
Great game mate. Fibs and Truths love it because I always win though i only played two times!
This such an effective icebreaker for new relationships from new friends to new couples. I played this with someone I met yesterday and it was a bonding experience.
