As much as we're all for spontaneous evenings, sometimes all you need is a bit of organised fun. Forgive us for sounding like Monica from Friends, but maybe that comes in the shape of a virtual quiz, drinking games or even dinner party games. Or how about a good old fashioned game of truth or dare?

Here's a definitive list of the best truth questions, and the best dare questions, to see you through your next evening of fun. Warning: things might get a bit spicy. If you've never played truth or dare before, the game typically involves each player being asked if they'd prefer to answer a truth question, or do a dare. Once they've picked, if they then refuse to answer the question or do the dare, there's often a forfeit involved - usually in the shape of a shot.
