Description of the tool

First decide which color is which question paper.
Then each player receives ten 5 red and 5 black cards. – The value on the card is not important… only the color.
RED = lie
Black = Truth
The first person on the left side of the facilitator starts, then next person ( following each time the left side of thrower…

Person throws two dices ( different colors) – and checks what kind of question ( see attachment) on what kind of action he/she has to answer.
This person puts one card in front of him ( not shown to the others) – this will be the check if the story was true or a lie… Red = lie black = true
Then this person tells his story ( max 1 minute), after the story each other player decides either it was a lie or true, by putting one of the own cards in front of him , when they guessed right : the card goes to the facilitator”, and the player receives a candy...
when the player it is not right (guessed wrong) , you keep your card and no candy
( Each player only has 10 cards ( 5 red and five black) – values are not important)
When your cards are gone you can buy a card from the others ( with candy...)
When everybody is wrong then the story teller receives also a candy- otherwise not...
The idea is to get rid of your cards and to collect candy’s ( and to have reflection on the YIA)

Materials needed:
- Candy’s
- Cards ( 5red +5 black) for each player
- Two dices ( different colors)
- Two pages with questions ( see attachment - off course the questions can be adapted... according the topic)
