Post Truth or Dare

I've got a question that maybe someone here can answer. In English there is a kids' game called Truth or Dare. Basically, teens or young adults sit in a circle and ask each other pointed, usually embarrassing questions about often taboo subjects. To opt out of answering, participants can perform a dare instead. This is usually some silly action like exchanging clothes with others in the circle or eating something terribly gross.

I'm wondering if Hispanic cultures have a game like this, and if so what's it called in Spanish?

I know the Japanese have something similar which is called variously shinsetsu [truth] or oosama [king] game. I'm guessing most cultures of something like this.

I think we'll have to wait for some native speaker opinions on this.
If you find something wrong with my Spanish, please correct it!

In Mexico that game has been introduced very recently into a few teenage social circles due to USA cultural influence and is called "verdad o reto" or "verdad o castigo". If I'm not mistaken (I'm already kind of old), it's not widely played or very popular though.

It was strongly introduce in the social teenage in Mexico, here it's called Vedad o Mentira, it's widely played with the same method that you told us before.
We are building the most important dare for my life and my family feature now we are installing new services in telecoms.
