The Ultimate Guide to Truth or Dare


Truth or Dare is a popular game often played at retreats, or overnight events like sleepovers. It’s a great icebreaker and provides an opportunity to get to know friends a little better. However, it can be difficult to come up with more than one or two questions or good dares. There are a few simple rules when getting ready to play your epic game of truth or dare.

Choose your players.

The game requires at least three players, and more than seven or eight makes it take too long. Ask people to play that you know will get into the spirit of a game that can get embarrassing and weird!

Make sure no one is uncomfortable before you begin.

Explain the game and the kinds of things you do. Let people know it’s ok to decline to play. For those who are ok with it, gather the players into a circle.

Think of some fun dares.

They need to be weird enough to make people pause before doing them, but not dangerous or harmful.

Don’t let the dares go too far.

Don’t do anything illegal or life-threatening. If someone really doesn’t want to do a dare, everyone in the game will pick a difficult dare of his or her own.

Now that you wont make idiotic decisions when playing the game, take into consideration some of these ways to truth and dare your BFF’s.

Kissing Dares
Many of the best Truth or Dare dares involve kissing. Among the top kissing dares listed at getDare.com is the challenge for girls to kiss the first guy they see with a mustache. For the guys in the group, they are to kiss the first girl wearing nail polish. It doesn’t matter if the person has bad breath or is not your type – it wouldn’t be a dare if you had a choice! Do not be afraid to get weird!

Around the Room
Normally Truth or Dare is played with 5-7 people, and when the party gets larger the challenges can be somewhat more tricky. Do not just stick to the same people getting the truths or dares, make sure that everyone in the room is getting crazy.

Stunts in Your Underwear
Underwear is a target of many dares, from things like removing an article of underwear without leaving the room, to playing the game in your underwear until your next turn. The ideas are endless, and sexy.

Dare to Smell
We all know how bad our socks smells after a long day. Smelling things is another top dare. Whether it’s a person’s feet, armpit or something else, this dare can be quite a challenge.

And how could I leave out...

Food Dares
Along with smelling unpleasant items, eating or tasting things is another popular dare. However, you don’t even have to eat the food to involve it in a challenge. Peeling a banana without using your hands is a dare that lasts awhile and will have you laughing.

Truth or Dare can be loads of fun. However, if you come across something that you or someone in the group doesn’t want to answer or do, don’t get swept up in the game. Present that person with another truth question or dare to keep the game going.
