Would you rather questions are a great way to get a conversation started in a fun and interesting way. And it’s easy to get into some amazing conversations by just asking “why” after a would you rather question. You’ll get some very interesting answers and probably learn a lot more about the person you are talking to.

If you’ve got a group, you can take turns choosing a would you rather question and asking each member of the group. If it’s just two of you, you both can take turns asking would you rather questions to each other. Or you can just run down the list together answering them all together.

You can also try some of our other conversation game pages like never have I ever questions, truth or dare questions, 21 questions game, this or that questions, most likely to questions, or even our trivia questions.

We have over 300 would you rather questions in our list, use them however you want and have fun with them! If you would like an image or a PDF of just the click the link in the table of contents. Or if you’d like to play games in a fun chat room / meeting setting the folks over at Brightful turned my questions into games.

Best would you rather questions

These are, in my humble opinion, some of the best would you
rather questions we have to offer. I hope you enjoy them!

Which would be less likely to wipe us off the face of the planet?

If you strongly swing introvert or extrovert, this might be
pretty easy for you.

To be honest, I just put this one in because I thought it
has a nice ring to it. Nothing like some good idioms.

Built in blanket or +2 armor, which one will you choose?

Is a bad year worth living or is better to give up a year of
your life?

Feel rushed or feel bored. Make others wait or have to wait.
Have a hard time getting a job or be constantly waiting around looking at your
phone. Choose wisely.

One free crime of your choice or a life of limitless theft
and/or espionage. Get in touch with your inner criminal.

8. Would you rather know the history of every object you touched or be able to talk to animals?

Basically, the best veterinarian/zoologist on the planet or
the most incredible archaeologist ever.

This answer probably changes quite a bit depending on if you
are or have ever been married.

The most important question is, what would the conversations
be like?

Look at you, big shot, the World making way for you!

The waves, the sun, the smell of salty air. The open road
before you, also the sun, the smell of the pines. Either one sounds pretty good
about right now.

Food choice, or beverage choice, tough pick.

Both would be pretty cool. Either one would make a great

This is a great question to help you decide how well you
would do as an entrepreneur.

Explorer or humanitarian, you’ll go down in history books
either way, but which way do you want to be remembered?

Either way, you will definitely have a leg up. You would be
the smartest 5-year-old on the playground but man, it would be rough going
through puberty again.

You feeling that druid vibe or more of a cyberpunk vibe?

Choosing between food and travel. I don’t know about you,
but it’s probably the hardest choice on this list for me.

So, will you be a super thief or a super snoop? Will you use
your powers for good or evil?

Being king pro: You get to tell everyone what to do. Living
in the past con: Dentistry. Or the lack thereof.

How about it, you Neo or a second-rate Aladdin? Information
is power, but dodging bullets is pretty cool. A lot of cardio though.

Sure, people will look at you funny, but either one you
choose, own it.

You want to be comfy in the streets or comfy in the sheets?

Well not everyone gets lucky. But you know if everyone is a
superhero then no one is.

Just remember that all the supporting characters in your
life are the main character in their own. Not sure why you need to remember it,
but it sounds pseudo-profound right?

“Lord, I was born a rambling man…” Or do you prefer… “Our
house, in the middle our street…”

Sure, being plain old sane might be the preferred choice, but
that’s not an option!

Do you prefer the high life or the wandering life? Both have
their benefits. But more than likely you instantly know which is right for you.

Is it just me or would this make a good comedy movie/TV

A god in the machine or a ghost in the real world.

Privacy for your thoughts, or privacy for you, which do you value more?

Both would change the world, for better or for worse, forever. But which choice would do the most good, or at least be the most fun.

Quality is great, but does it outweigh quantity? I leave
that up to you to decide.

No matter which you choose that would be one crazy life to

It’s amazing how many uses these two would have once you
start thinking about them and how they would play out in real life.

You can’t judge a book by its cover. But people still do.

There is a reason that super power questions are so popular they are almost a cliché. I mean we all want to be powerful and special.

A lot easier to answer if you’ve lived or traveled other countries but even if you haven’t, you’ve surely heard a lot about at least a few countries.

Safer but slower and more annoying or faster but more likely to get a ticket?

The dream job also gives you a month paid vacation, but you need to pay for the vacation.

If you’ve ever given up using a phone or been on a low/no salt diet you know how painful each of these are.

44. Would you rather get a post card every day from a stranger in a different country or a 10 minute call with anyone in the world you choose once a year?

For the post cards, you wouldn’t be obligated to respond unless you wanted to. So it’s either voices from around the world, 365 a year or a high powered short conversation once a year.

This one might depend on age, I have a feeling older folks might prefer podcasts and younger might prefer YouTube, but I could be wrong.

Some people can take or leave the snacks, and for some people they are just as crucial as the movie.

Do you have that wanderlust, or just want to settle in? Neither one is better than the other, they’re just different.

Job satisfaction versus not working as much at your job. Probably a real decision you’ll have to make or have already made.

I feel like with this question you could also branch out into one letting you enjoy life now but the other would let you leave you mark on history. Life or legacy.

This question doesn’t really work unless the person you are asking really likes beverages other than water, booze or coffee or soda.

Sure, you’ll probably make more money as a business owner, but you’d probably be more famous as an artist. Either one could be doing what you love, it just depends on what you love doing.

Sure, you are pretty awesome now, but you could be way more awesome…. or way worse.

Funny would you rather questions

These would you rather questions will hopefully be good for a laugh, or at least the start of a funny conversation.

I think the picture is definitely worth a thousand of my

Very cool and impractical or kind of lame but a lot more

Sure, you like soup, but do you like it enough to give up
using a fork?

Let’s be honest, both are a fate worse than death.

So, um yeah, sometimes you get so tired, and you just type
stuff. And sometimes you keep it. And this I’m keeping.

You are going to get the side eye from a lot of folks either

Either way, you are going to need to find a job suited to
your strict attire requirements. Bathing suit, lifeguard. Tux, probably lots of
options. Wedding dress… hmm that one might be a little more difficult.

60. Would you rather be unable to move your body every time it rains or not be able to stop moving while the sun is out?

Which do you value more, your peaceful rest time or getting
stuff done?

Birds or Cujo, either way, better put on your chainmail
before heading out the door!

Oh man, either way, you might take a beating walking around.
Just hope you don’t live in a city!

63. Would you rather have skin that changes color based on your emotions or tattoos appear all over your body depicting what you did yesterday?

Whew, the tattoos would be super embarrassing, but then
again it would be rough having everyone know how you feel all the time.

This is another that would make a great TV series.
Especially if they combined them. I only hope they make it a dark comedy.

Yeah, let’s just pretend that whatever is being thrown, once
it hits the ground, it disappears. Nobody wants tons of popped balloon
fragments or rotting food around.

This is like the worst set of superpowers ever. Hope you can
find an SO who is super understanding.

One incredibly goofy, one incredibly creepy. Which will you

The most underwhelming superpowers. I would totally watch a show or movie about superheroes with really under powered powers.

Cold and flu season is going to be really weird for you.

Yeah, this is another one I don’t really know what to say.
Nothing catchy here just a very bizarre choice.

Knowing my friends, definitely the ingredients chosen at
random. I hope you have nicer friends than I do…

The future is a fashion dystopia! There is no fashion, or everyone must be extremely unique in their fashion or face possible death.

How much is three weeks worth? Is it worth the memory? Sure, it would make a great story, but the smell, oh the smell.

Not going to lie, I pulled the trees screaming from Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey. But the spiders being able to open doors, that’s just from my nightmares.

Who needs privacy after all? You get decide if you want your thoughts to be private or you get some alone time but people think you are crazy every time you are around them.

Another silly one, but one that probably touches some pet peeves. But really, I just wish people would use headphones. If you listen to music without headphones, just know that everyone hates you and wishes you were never born. Can you tell which one bothers me the most?

You are definitely going to garner some attention wherever you go, either way road trips are going to be a bit rough.

Bizarre super powers, maybe not super powers. More like mediocre powers, but powers none the less!

Either one could lead to some very fun pranks and shenanigans, limited only by your creativity.

This one is a fun one because the more you think into each one the more you realize how limiting each would be.

Sure, being the head of a company would make you more money but being the head of a cult would probably lead to a lot better stories.

You feeling hot, hot, hot. Or are you as cold as ice?

For the wearing shoes always, think the spray on shoes from Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. I think the uncomfortable shoes is self-explanatory, we’ve all been there.

Both are horrible, even more so if done by a stranger, but which is worse?

And if you did choose the one strong smell one, which smell would it be?

Just some general would you rather questions that are fun to
answer. No theme or anything, just enjoy!

The limelight or the credit, your choice.

Both help to make peoples’ lives better. But both have some
serious downsides that go along with them.

Which do you cheer for in fantasy movies and books, dwarves or elves?

Would you rather be able to control fire or water?

How about it, you a Zuko or a Katara?

This question gets a lot harder to answer the hotter or
colder it is where you live.

Either one would make for an amazing superpower.

And of course, Reddit counts as social media, even if you
are just lurking.

The old dilemma of beauty vs. intelligence, which is more
important? Is ignorance truly bliss, or is that just cop out?

Sure, you can always lose weight, but how many people
actually do lose weight. As for the other, a lot of work, but a lot of hair as
well. How much do you love those locks Fabio?

Forced carnivore or vegetarian, I suppose for vegans and vegetarians this is an easy choice.

It won’t be long until everyone has both! Whether they like
it or not. Just kidding! Or am I?

The arts or the sciences, which do you prefer?

We are talking ALL drugs, not just the fun and useful ones. And perhaps dueling would be popular or perhaps not. Either choice could possibly lead to quite a bit of chaos or might not do much of anything.
