Truth or Dare is a popular conversational game among friends. It is a fun way to get your friends to reveal something intimate about themselves, and the dares can range from interesting to outrageous. If you are a fan of Truth or Dare, then you will be excited to learn that there are dozens of other fun, interesting, and simple games just like it. Here is a brief overview of four games like Truth or Dare.
1. Two Truths & a Lie
How well do you know the person next to you? Two Truths & a Lie is built on this concept. Here is a step-by-step guide on how it works:
- Everyone sits in a circle, and one person becomes the “guesser.”
- The person sitting to the right of the guesser shares two true facts and one false detail about themselves.
- The guesser must then determine which of the three details are true and which one is a lie.
- This process repeats with the next person in the circle until the guesser fails, in which case the person testing them becomes the new guesser.
Two Truths & a Lie is designed for any social setting. It is an excellent way for new friends to learn more about each other and for old friends to find out how much they know about each other.
2. Dare & Dance
Dare & Dance is an excellent conversational and practical game for friends who like to dance. The rules are simple: the person chosen to dance must pick a dare out of a bowl and dance in that particular style to the best of their abilities. Each dare essentially is a music style such as breakdancing or the chicken.
The music should be enjoyable and easy to dance to. You can ensure that the music is appropriate by pre-select the playlist based on the dancing styles specified in the dares.
3. True or False?
True or False is an educational game ideal for individuals and friends who like a brain teaser. You are presented with an interesting statement implying that something could be the case and then asked to declare whether it is true or false. For example, the statement could be, “A camel can drink 100 gallons of water in one sitting, true or false?” It is a fun way to learn about interesting new things.
4. Never Have I Ever
Never Have I Ever is eerily similar to Truth or Dare. It doesn’t involve asking people for juicy details about themselves, but you can still dare them to do interesting things based on their life experiences. Here is a step-by-step guide on how it works:
- Everyone sits in a circle, and the first person poses a statement about never having done something. For example, the statement could be, “Never have I ever dined and dashed.”
- Everyone that has never dined and dashed will then raise their hand or stand up.
- The people left sitting must then pose a dare than the people standing must complete, and then the process starts all over again with the next person.
Although you don’t get to ask people juicy details about themselves, you can still learn a lot about their personalities based on the things that they have or haven’t done. It is advisable to make the statement practical and interesting – for example, don’t talk about going to the moon or space station if none of the participants is an astronaut. The dares should also be practical but also creative and interesting.
These conversational games are ideal for friends to bond while having fun. Don’t be surprised to discover new things about your friends and yourself. Remember to keep things creative and practical and, most importantly, enjoy yourself.
