    Directions

    First define the topic you are going list facts about. For example, for a training on Presentation Skills the topic might be "Facts about Good Presentations." If you are playing it as a party game, you might chose to use the topic as your city or local sports team.

    Have everyone sit in a circle and going quickly around the circle each person has to say a fact about the given topic. This starts off easy and then can be surprisingly hard to keep going without repeating facts or introducing opinions or unproven theories (which are not facts)!

    At any point if someone says something that they don't think is a real fact, group members should challenge it by saying "Just the facts!" and the rest of group votes to determine if it is really a fact or not. If not, that's a point off for the group. Once you collectively get X points off, you are done. X = the number of people in the group.

    Definitions of facts

    • a piece of information about circumstances that exist or events that have occurred
    • a statement or assertion of verified information about something that is the case or has happened
    • an event known to have happened or something known to have existed
    • a concept whose truth can be proved
