Truth or dare is the classic party game of embarrassment. A group of people take turns asking each other “truth or dare”? When someone chooses truth, they must answer the question truthfully regardless of how embarrassing it is. When someone chooses dare, they are given a task to complete. If they don’t like the first dare they can choose to be given another dare but they must complete the second dare. You cannot dare someone to answer a question.
It’s a great way to learn more about your friends. Maybe more than you ever wanted to know. And if they insist on remaining secretive at least you get to be entertained by them doing outrageous dares.
This is a list of some basic truth questions and dares to get you started. You can adapt them to suit the atmosphere of the get together. Just remember to not get too dark with the truth questions. You are aiming for embarrassment and hilarity. You can find out some pretty dark things about your friend’s past if you aren’t careful. Also remember to keep the dares at a reasonable level of craziness. Someone gets seriously injured or the cops get called and the party is over.
As long as you don’t go overboard, playing truth or dare can be a blast at parties. So use and adapt the truth questions and dares from this list, and have an incredibly embarrassing game of truth or dare!
