Fun team building exercise

I generally hate these things, but there has to be a fun one out there. Any suggestions?

Take everyone to the beach and then rent those sumo wrestling suits and do that egg in a spoon blindfolded game and then have a hot dog eating contest.

Oh, wait, nevermind.

We used to do this one game where we had to get a half dozen people over a rope that was tied between two trees about 7 or 8 feet off the ground, the only tool we were given was a 2 by 4.

But that was the 80s and I think things are far more litigious now.

I've used this website to find team-building games.

Two Truths and a Lie is kind of fun....

Everyone says three things about themselves: two that are true and one that is made-up. Then the rest of the group has to guess which is the lie. It's fun because you learn some far-fetched things about people that seem like lies but are actually true.

There was one that is kind of like musical chairs. There are enough chairs for all but one person. You begin with someone standing in the middle and they make a statement such as "I am wearing short sleeves" or "I watch Grey's Anatomy" anyone who agrees or fits in with that statement has to get up and find another seat, along with the person who was in the middle. Whoever is left without a seat stays in the middle and makes another statement. I did this with a college group. Professional adults might feel silly doing it but I thought it was actually fun.
Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth. I sat at a table where were rich food and wine in abundance, and obsequious attendance, but sincerity and truth were not;
and I went away hungry from the inhospitable board.

A couple of groups that I've had the pleasure of working with did the cooking thing where you actually split into smaller teams and each competes and cooks a part of multi course meal, afterwhich you all sit down and eat what you just cooked. It was fun.

Another idea is to have the team do a volunteer project. We did this last year at a local park, weeding, planting, putting up small fences to protect our little gardens. It benefitted the park because projects like this require constant maintenance and it helps to preserve the wild life in the area. I really enjoyed this particular activity, but there are many other volunteer projects that you can do.

I ended up doing a "what did you learn?" exercise where they had to answer two of the following questions:

What did you learn today?

What is the most useful thing you learned in the last week/month/year/previous life?

What did you learn at the watercooler/pub/party on the weekend/on vacation?

What did you learn on your soical networking website when you should have been 'working'?

What's the most valuable learning you've obtained in the past month/year and how did you get it?

What's the most you've learned for the least cost/effort and the least you've learned from the most cost/effort?

Interestingly enough, we all learned quite a bit of stuff for work through social networking websites that have nothing to do with work.
