Can I Add Rules?
This is a common question about Truth or Drink. In its most basic form, the game is relatively simple, so if you want to add new rules or stipulations, feel free! Here are a few popular additions to Truth or Drink:
- Lives: Each player gets one to three “lives” to spend if they want to hand over a question to another player. If the second player refuses, they have to take two drinks instead of one.
- Redirection: Each player has one chance to redirect their drink to another player.
- Drinking partners: The host can randomly assign drinking partners. A player must drink with their partner, even if it’s not their turn. The host also has the liberty to change partners during the game.
Play Smartly and Safely
Truth or Drink involves alcohol, and alcohol is a recipe for a fun time IF you make the right decisions. Act responsibly while playing, be mindful of how much you drink, and make sure everyone has a sleeping arrangement or a way to get home safely.
It’s also important to set some boundaries. Our list of questions plays on the safe side, but an intense game of Truth or Drink can quickly make a turn to topics that you’re not comfortable with. Before the game begins, make sure everyone is on the same page about what questions are off-limits.
Once you set some ground rules, you’re ready to play. Grab some friends, gather around a table, and get the alcohol and questions flowing!
