You have some friends over: what do you do to entertain them? Sure you eat pizza, tell embarrassing stories and laugh. But at some point or another, someone gets the idea to play truth or dare: that’s a must for every party. And surely it’s a great idea, especially if you’re trying to break the ice and have some fun.
But what happens usually is that after 5 rounds of good dares you and your friends exhaust yourself and can’t come up with anything interesting, intriguing or fun anymore.
And that’s why we’ve come up with 50+ good dares for guys and girls that you should try next time you’re playing. I promise the game will end up being super fun.
By the way, did you know where the game of truth or dare comes from? They say it’s from the command games like the ancient Greek basilinda described by Julius Pollux, “in which we are told a king, elected by lot, commanded his comrades what they should perform.” Alright, I won’t bore you anymore with history and all. Let’s dive into the juicy dare questions.
