Truth or Dare

Truth or Dare is one of the most popular party games! Luckily it is quite simple to play. Your opponent chooses whether they want to play either "Truth" or "Dare".


If you opponent chooses Dare then they have to do whatever you dare them to do. If they refuse to do it then, they have to drink. Who asks who what questions is determined by spinning a bottle. The person behind the bottom of the bottle dares the person the bottle is facing.


If your opponent chooses Truth, then you ask them a question (remember who asks who is determined by spinning a bottle). Usually, a very embarrassing question and they have to answer truthfully. If they fail to answer, they have to drink.


What's the song

Another simple yet addictive game. As the name suggests, you have to guess the song. A snippet of the song can be played or, you can hum the song or lists facts about the song until your opponent guesses correctly.

For example, one of the band's members is now also an actor. They were five people in the band, and their biggest hit music video had in some form of puppets. Now it is your turn, name the song!

The answer would be Nsync Bye Bye Bye.

Would You Rather

Would you Rather can not only be played at parties but also over text. Choose two statements which are comparably outrageous such as:

Would you rather live in an igloo vs Would you rather live with Kanye West

Let your opponent pick the more bearable of the two statements then move on to the next question. See some examples below:

Would you rather eat only vegetables for the rest of your life
Would you rather hurt a cute puppy
Would you rather skydive
Would you rather bungee jump
Would you rather dance all night
Would you rather drink all night
Would you rather be impaled
Would you rather drown
Would you rather go to Europe
Would you rather go the USA
Would you rather read a dictionary
Would you rather read the bible
Would you rather meet the president
Would you rather meet a celebrity
Would you rather use a desktop for life
Would you rather use a laptop for life
Would you rather dye your hair bright yellow
Would you rather go bald
Would you rather a new phone
Would you rather a new laptop

Note: I would rather the new phone mine is ancient now.

There is no real winner in this game but its fun to see what others prefer as it might differ from your own preferences.
