We also have Truth Questions and Dare Challenges available.
"Truth or Dare?" is always the opening line in this game. It is a classic and is still played at parties everywhere. This a great Get to Know You game as well. You have the chance to ask your friends things they might not have already told you. And things you have been dying to know about them.
The questions you ask and the dares you propose will vary with each group. Having a party where there are members of the opposite gender will invariably create a whole list of different quests you will want to ask your friends to do.
The typical way to play is to have everyone sit in a circle. One player begins by asking anyone else in the group "Truth... or Dare?" This means the one being asked has a choice between taking a question where they must NOT lie, or they can accept a dare.
If the player says they want the question, then after hearing it decides not to answer, he/she must then by default accept the dare. This completes a round and another round begins.
If this game is not familiar to the guests, we have a printable list of Questions and Dares that can be used. This list contains only clean and fun questions and dares. You can print the list, cut out the items and put them in two seperate jars. Let the guests choose out of the jar themsevles.
Do you have a great story about playing a game listed on this site? Are there variations of the game you would like to share? Tell us!
Many people come to this site looking for a couple specific games. When they find them, great, the job is done. But there is one thing I want ALL my guests to know regardless of how many or how few pages they read. Therefore, if you see this box again on a few more pages, skip it and move on to finding more games for your event.
But for those reading this for the first time, here is the best advice I can pass on from my many years of experience planning and executing large and small events. Read on…
“Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up.” These are great words from A.A. Milne, the creator of Winnie-the-Pooh. I couldn’t agree more. And a solid foundation of organizing and planning is needed for most events. But I am here to tell you even with the BEST organization, no event is going to proceed EXACTLY as planned. You may even have a Plan B, C or D as a back-up. That’s fabulous! But trust me on this one; something will happen that you had no way of anticipating. So what now? Here is the trick. Pay close attention to this because it is the single most important piece of wisdom I can share with my readers.
Are you ready?
That’s it. I could write an entire page on how to “be in the moment” and “have fun at your own party.” But neither of those will happen if you don’t have the mindset that it’s alright to have things turn out differently than you imagined. The good news is that usually what you planned in your head that didn’t come through was never even missed by most.
So if you are going along, playing a game, or any other group activity, and it leads you down a road you didn’t foresee… Enjoy the ride.
We only played the Christmas ABC game tonight, but it was fun and funny! I have 3 more games and quizzes that I will take to my parents' house on Saturday. Thanks again!!
