Truth or Dare is a classic party game that can lead to some memorable fun. A player chooses to answer a question truthfully or to do a crazy dare in front of all the other players.

Instructions for How to Play Truth or Dare

Each player takes a turn asking another player, “Truth or Dare?” The player who is asked must choose to do a “truth” or a “dare.” A truth is to answer a question truthfully, and a dare is to do something silly or crazy. For example:

Sample Truth Questions:

  • What is the craziest thing you have ever done?
  • What is your most embarrassing moment?
  • What is the grossest thing you’ve ever eaten?
  • If you had to marry someone in this room, who would it be?
  • What is the funniest thing that has ever happened to you?
  • What is is the most important thing you look for when dating?
  • If you had to live with only one object what would it be?
  • What is the most attractive thing in a man/woman?

Sample Dare Questions:

  • I dare you to prank call another person we know.
  • I dare you to eat 5 packets of ketchup.
  • I dare you to put toothpaste all over your face.
  • I dare you to dance and spell your name with your butt.
  • I dare you to smell someone’s bad breath for 2 minutes.
  • I dare you to put your hand into the toilet bowl.
  • I dare you to brush another person’s teeth with your toothbrush.

Once a person is given a Truth or a Dare request, he or she can agree to do it, or he or she can switch to the other Truth or Dare. Be creative!
