Imagine yourself being sat at a painfully short table across from your ex. There are three bottles of heavy liquor placed to your right, and two shot glasses sit in front of each of you. A voice behind the camera then asks the two of you to play a game of Truth or Drink, the premise of which is to pick up a card from a pile placed between the two of you, and read the brutally honest question that’s written on it. Your ex then has the opportunity to answer this question to your face, or take a shot of the powerful alcohol. After this, the roles are reversed and the game continues until both of you are either completely smashed, or crushed over the harmful truths that were just revealed.
This sounds a lot like a Saw trap, doesn’t it? Well to most, it would be. But for the couples in the video below, they seem to do a pretty good job not getting too drunk or making the other cry. It’s actually quite funny, you find out some hilarious facts about these strangers and the relationships they shared – like how one couple broke up over G Chat, or how the majority of these couples should probably just get back together – because they so clearly still love each other.
If you watched this video and wanted to play a game of Truth or Drink at home, we wanted to provide some tips on how you can play responsibly. The rules really don’t change much from what I mentioned above, but we’ve just added some suggestions that may prevent you from getting either wasted or in a nasty argument.
Tips for not getting too tipsy:
Instead of having three bottles at your table like in the video above, opt for a large mixed beverage between the two of you, like sangria. We don’t have to get fancy here, so write 10-15 questions (the questions used in the video have been provided below) on a couple pieces of paper, and rip these up into miniature squares, then place them on the table between you two. (If these questions are for a game with your partner, try to jot down questions that may not lead to conflict, but are still scary enough that a shot may seem more appealing.)
