What will we do?

Three people will give a short (10 minute) presentation on an interesting topic of their choice. In the presentation they will hide 7 things that are false. The listeners take notes to try to detect these falsehoods.

After each presentation the players in turn explain what they think the lies were. The presenter can then convince them of the contrary. Presenters get points for making people believe lies and for making them doubt true facts. Listeners get points for identifying the lies.

The presenters will get the maximum number of points if each of their lies is identified by exactly one listener. This way the presenter has an incentive to make the lies hard but not impossible to spot.
