Tips for Playing "Truth or Dare"

"Truth or Dare" doesn't come with a fixed set of rules, but there are a few things you should keep in mind before playing.

Keep it light.

At the core, "Truth or Dare" is a game, and games are supposed to be light and easy. Of course, there will be opportunities to incorporate heavier topics, but don't let that overwhelm the conversation. Find the right balance, and always be mindful of the group's mood.

Don't try to get your friends in trouble.

We all love seeing our friends do something a little silly, but no one wants to see their friends get into any actual trouble. Be clever with your dares, but not careless; tactical but not thoughtless; daring but not dangerous.

Be aware of people's boundaries.

Not everyone has the same amount of flexibility when it comes to certain kinds of conversation. Even if you don't know the people you're playing with very well, it doesn't take too long to establish what topics they're comfortable discussing—and what topics they're not. That doesn't mean you have to forget your riskier questions altogether—maybe just keep them on reserve for the folks you know will be OK answering them.

Don't forget to read the room.

Vibes can change pretty quickly. Whether it's one person leading the charge, or an entire room full of people who have become uncomfortable with where the game is going, it's important to remain mindful of how people are feeling. If the game has progressed to a point where people are no longer having fun, change gears. It's also important to realize when the game is no longer serving the people it was intended to benefit. It's OK to call it quits and start again at a future party.
