How does it work?
In case you’re unfamiliar with the game… or it has been a while, here’s a quick rundown. It’s pretty simple. You choose player one, either by spinning a bottle, rock-paper-scissors, or by age, however, you choose. That person becomes the questioner. They either spin the bottle or ask the person to their left the question “truth or dare?” That person chooses their fate.
If they choose “truth,” they will have to answer a (probably embarrassing) question put forth by player one. If they choose “dare,” they will be challenged to a silly or possibly embarrassing task. Sometimes, the question is too intense. In that case, the player can choose to pass, but, there’s usually a punishment. For adult friend groups, the punishment is generally a shot of tequila or something similar. You can also use candy, fake money, or something of the sort, to pay a fine if you don’t complete your question. The person with the biggest pile of candy at the end of the game wins a special prize.
How to Choose Truth Questions
Truth Questions can be anything you want. However, the best truth questions are meant to get to know your friend more deeply. It should reveal something of their inner self, expose something funny, or be an off-the-wall inquisition that makes the person think outside the box.
Keep your questions simple and direct. You only get one question, so no cheating with compound questions. If you’re willing to let your prey off the hook easily, you can formulate your question as a yes or no, or true or false, but if you’re sadistic, make sure to work your query in a way that forces your respondent to explain. For instance:
Let them off easy: Have you ever had a sex dream about a friend?
Slightly sadistic: Which friend shows up the most in your sex dreams?
See the difference? If you’re going to get really personal, just make sure you’re among a trusted circle of friends and in company that won’t get offended or have their feelings hurt. A game is not worth losing a friendship. In this article, we will organize our questions into four categories: “truth questions for adult friends” and “truth questions for couples,” followed by the same system for dares. Here we go!
