Activity – Truth or Dare Game

How to Play Truth or Dare?

Truth or Dare is a game that can be adapted to fit any group of people.  For the At-Home Summer Camp, the game is befitting for everyone in your family can play along,  Here is a brief overview of the rules for the family-style game:

  1. The youngest player starts off first by choosing a player to ask “truth or dare?”
  2. If “truth” is chosen, the player comes up with a question that they want to know about the other player and the other player must answer honestly.
  3. If “dare” is chosen, the player must “dare” the person to do something silly, hard, or just out of the ordinary.
  4. If the player chooses not to answer “truth” honestly or refuses to do a dare, they must suffer a “consequence” which can be an alternative action chosen at the beginning of the game. Examples include holding your breath for 20 seconds, standing on your head for 20 seconds, or eating a raw vegetable.
  5. Continue with the next player until everyone has had at least 1 turn. Obviously, the longer the game, the more fun you and your family will have!

It’s meant to be fun and light-hearted, a time to create happy memories and fill your day with fun and laughter.
