History of Truth or Dare
Truth or Dare, a game that stood the test of time. Young or old, everyone knows how to play this because it has literally been around for hundreds of years!
Its origins are traced back to as early as 1712 when it was originally a Christmas time “questions and commands” game. Others argue that the ancient Greeks’ “basilinda” was its first variant, in which the people just do as their king tells them.
No matter how it started, no one can deny how fond we all are of this party game which is a great and interesting way to get to know our family and friends.
Truth or Dare Rules
One of the reasons why everyone loves this game is because it is just so simple. You can play it anywhere and anytime.
You just need the players themselves for this game, nothing else. You can play it with friends, lovers, and family. You will need at least two players, but the more, the merrier!
You can also prepare the questions and dares ahead of time. Write them in slips of paper and put them in separate containers labeled “Truth” and “Dare”. If writing takes too much of your time, click the link below for our Truth or Dare online app!

Sit in a circle. This way, everyone sees and hears each other.
To start the game, the players can agree who will have the first turn or you can just start with the youngest player. The other players will ask him or her, ”Truth or Dare?”.
After one player’s turn, you can proceed clockwise to the next person in the circle. The game goes on and on until you want it to. You can create a theme for your questions and dares. Get creative to have a blast at parties!
If you pick truth, get one slip of paper from the container labeled “Truth”, read it out loud and answer it truthfully no matter how embarrassing it is.
To skip the hassle, you can just download our app or play online to access and generate the best and funniest truth questions and dares!
Remember, the other players can opt to just ask you a question instead of letting you pick from the prepared slips so be super ready.
Expect questions that are personal, embarrassing and hilarious. Just be a sport and answer truthfully. Your honesty is what will make this game fun!
If you really don’t have the guts to answer it, the other players will have to let you do a dare.
Here are some fun questions to ask your friends and make them squirm:
- Who was the last person you kissed on the lips?
- What is the grossest thing you have had in your mouth?
- What is the most embarrassing nickname you have ever had?
- What is the most embarrassing series of texts you have on your phone?
- Is it true that you (whatever you or the group suspects they do / did)?
- What do you really hope your parents never find out about?
- What have you done that people here would judge you most for doing?
- What horrible thing have you done that no one else found out about?
- What is the most disgusting habit you have?
- Who have you loved but they didn’t love you back?
If you pick “dare” or if you can’t answer a question truthfully, get one slip from the container labeled “Dare”, read it out loud and perform the dare. Then again, the others can make up a dare for you on the spot if they feel like it!
These dares will be challenging! Expect to make a fool of yourself and you will be all good! No matter how ridiculous and funny the dare is, you have no choice but to do it!
