Want to really get to know someone? Play a round of Would You Rather. After all, when faced with choices ranging from thought-provoking to downright silly, people will always surprise you. The questions you use when playing with adults don’t have to be life-or-death choices; they can be funny, outrageous, or thought-provoking, but all should be interesting! We’ve rounded up 35 of our favorite would-you-rather questions for adults below, but if you’re playing with kids and need more age-appropriate questions, we’ve got the best would-you-rather questions for kids and teens

How Do You Play Would You Rather?

When playing this fun party game, people answer questions that have two choices. For example, “Would you rather have the ability to be invisible or the ability to time travel?” The idea is to encourage a discussion, so the questions should make players think differently about a scenario or a choice between two things, and there should always be an explanation as to why they chose their answer.

You can use Would You Rather questions with adults anywhere: at work, family gatherings, parties, or hanging with a few friends. It’s a fun way to learn more about someone, whether you know them well or not.
