As much as we're all for spontaneous evenings, sometimes all you need is a bit of organised fun. Especially at the moment - whether you're locked down in your uni house or living with a group of friends, sometimes the evenings in can feel endless and Netflix feels like it's been completed.

Sound familiar? Forgive us for sounding like Monica from Friends, but sometimes entertainment 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 going around in a circle, with 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.

This game is great for getting to know each other a little better (you did what when you were younger?) and unearthing forgotten stories, as well as just getting a little bit silly. What do you mean you've never howled like a wolf for two minutes? Here are our best truth or dare questions:
