History of Truth or Dare

Where: New York
When: 1930s/40s

I'm trying to find out how far back the game 'truth or dare' goes.

Googling 'history of truth or dare game' has told me that there's no record of it being played before the 1950s, but I just wanted to check whether anyone here knows for sure if that's accurate? Specifically, I need to know whether boys growing up in New York in the 1930s and early 1940s would have played it.

Thanks!
