1. What is one embarrassing fact I should know about you?
This is a great early-round icebreaker truth question. We all have at least one embarrassing secret we keep to ourselves. It's up to you to tell which uncomfortable fact you want to share with the world.
2. Go to your neighbor's house and tell them a joke.
Bring the neighbors in on the fun! It's also a great way to get to know and be good friends with them. More neighborhood friends, more fun!

Everyone likes to see a close friend in pain. And yes, getting waxed is not a fun pastime, either.
6. Let the person next to you give you a haircut using only their left hand.
It sure is a nerve-racking dare, and you have no choice but to trust the person. Unless the person next to you is left-handed, you're literally in good hands! Hey, it'll still grow back.
7. Make an outfit for yourself using no more than 2 rolls of toilet paper.
