150 best truth or dare questions

The best truth or dare questions have the ability to unlock secrets and reveal desires – it’s a big reason why the classic party game has managed to stand the test of time – but it’s also a surefire way to get the party started and understand your friends better.

The rules are simple. Take turns asking each other “truth or dare?”. If a player chooses truth, they will be forced to answer a question of the asker’s choosing, however, if they choose dare, they’ll be assigned an action or task to be performed.

It sounds straightforward enough, but mastering the art of asking a good truth or question can help you break down the awkwardness barrier and make a lasting memory. Want to rule kick-on forever? Our article will focus on two lists, the best dare questions, and the best truth questions. Let’s get started.

Best Dare Questions

Good dare questions tend to have a bit more of a sultry theme, and while there is nothing wrong with that, playing with that notion can be risky. It’s worth starting slow and going with the old favourites, such as forcing one player to do a challenge for the remainder of the round. Similarly, doing something super embarrassing is always good fare. While asking your friends to post cringe stuff on social media is also worth a laugh, try not to ruin their lives. Here’s our list of the best dares to ask.

  1. Wear your clothes backwards for the rest of the game.
  2. Call a pizza place and ask if they sell tacos.
  3. Wear a hat made of toilet paper.
  4. Put on a pair of underwear on your head for the rest of the game.
  5. Eat a spoonful of hot sauce.
  6. Do a handstand.

  8. Put an ice cube down your shirt and keep it there for 1 minute.
  9. Call a random number and try to sell them a pencil.

How To Play Truth or Dare

If you’ve never played truth or dare before, the game’s rules are relatively simple.

Rules – The round will begin with a player being asked if they’d prefer to answer a truth question or to do a dare. You can select the player either moving around the circle in a clockwise direction, so everyone has a go, or by random. Often this comes in the form of a bottle spin. Once they’ve chosen, the question or dare-master will indulge them, but here, the player is faced with a choice. If they then refuse to answer the question or do the dare, there’s often a forfeit involved – usually in the shape of a shot. Now, you see where the adult theme is coming in.

Tips for Good Truth or Dare Questions

Now, even the best Truth or Dare questions can be a recipe for tension among your friends. Before you kick-off, it’s worth taking stock of who is and isn’t really into the game. Here are some simple tips you can follow to ensure no one gets their feelings hurt and you keep your friendships intact.

  • Survey the players – The first step in starting a game of Truth or Dare is to measure the enthusiasm for the activity. Watch people’s faces and reactions when the game is first suggested and you’ll quickly figure out who isn’t that keen on playing. Rather than forcing them to sit out, you can include them, however, tailor your truth questions to less intrusive topics. Similarly, it might be an idea to get other players in on the approach.
  • Think about feelings – More often than not, you’ll find yourself playing the game with friends, so it pays to think about past experiences. You should always be conscious of feelings. Make sure you aren’t bringing up old wounds and be considerate. You don’t want to lose a friendship over a poorly thought-out Truth or Dare question.
  • Keep it fun – Sounds easy enough, but it’s worth a mention. No one wants to play a game of Truth or Dare where every round they are forced to do 100 squats. That ain’t fun, that’s fitness.

General FAQs

What are good truth questions?

The best truth questions are those that bring up some intimate facts you may not have known previously. Rather than coaxing some deep, dark secret out of your friends, you should ask questions relating to emotional response. Ask them what their biggest fear is, what is something their mum doesn’t know about them and if they have any kinky fetishes.

What can I do if I can’t think of any truth or dare questions?

While there are the staple choices, you can also make use of an online Truth or Dare Question generator. This can help get the ball rolling and kickstart the conversation.

What are some dirty Truth or Dare questions to ask?

It’s pretty straightforward, but when you want to get a little frisky during Truth or Dare, it pays to play the tease game. Don’t go straight for the obvious; ask them about their fantasies and what they’ like to do, given the chance.
