1 Truth or dare

A game played most frequently by kids, teens and young adults. To begin, a group sits together (often in a circle), and the first questioner asks "truth or dare?" to any player he/she wants in the group. If "truth" is answered, that player must honestly answer a question given, no matter how personal or embarrassing (and often related to sexual themes). If "dare" is answered, that player must complete a task given by the questioner, which is also often embarrassing or awkward. Once the player responds to the truth or completes the dare, he/she can then question another player in the group, and the cycle continues.
