How to Play Connect the Fact

Before starting, each participant needs a piece of paper to write their facts. You’ll also need a bowl to collect all the papers.

It’s also useful to have one person note down the scores for all players, so that it’s easy to determine the eventual winner.

Setting Up

  • Ask each guest to write three interesting or funny facts about themselves on a piece of paper. It could be hidden talents, past adventures, or weird characteristics.
  • Fold each paper and place it in the bowl. Shuffle them to mix well.
    • Tell everyone to fold their paper exactly twice. In this way, all papers look the same.
  • Arrange seats in a circle so everyone can see each other and engage in the guessing.

With these simple steps, you’re all set for a round of ‘Guess Who’. Next, we’ll dive into how to play the game and score points.

Game Rules

The goal of this guessing game for adults is to correctly guess which fact belongs to which person. Each correct guess is worth one point, and the player with the highest number of total points wins the game. Here’s how it’s played:

  1. Players take turns in picking a fact from the bowl and reading it out loud.
  2. All players then point their finger in the air
  3. At the count of three, players point at the player who they think the fact belongs to.
  4. Count all fingers per player, and make sure that it’s clear who pointed at who.
  5. The player who wrote the fact then reveals their selves.
  6. The players that guessed it correctly receive one point.

You cannot score point with your own facts. However, you must point at someone when it’s your fact, so that others don’t know who’s fact it is until the moment of reveal.
