Game description

In the variety show, the game leader introduces an ancient Egyptian lie detector to the audience - The lie mummy. The mummy is wheeled in with the help of two assistants. The game leader then asks the spectators some questions ("Have you secretly smoked? How often do you clean your teeth?") With every answer which the mummy does not believe to be the truth, she wobbles more or less alarmingly. As one of the spectators answers a difficult question, she falls over completely.


The son comes home – the mother asks him for the results of his maths test. After much deliberation, he has still not told her the result. The mother brings in the lie mummy. The mummy wobbles around until the son admits that he got an “F”. The father soon joins the scene and makes a drama because of the “F”. The father then claims: "In those days, I never had a test result worse than a “B” in maths” – cue for the mummy to fall over.
