When you need a game for your group, but you didn’t bring one with you, asking “would you rather” questions is a fun way to spend your time with friends. These will even be great for times when you are far from friends and loved ones. These are fun to use via texting or video chats. Our list starts off with the funny options that may help you break the ice with people in your group. The questions get deeper and harder to answer as the list goes on.
Questions like these can be the start of some great stories or sharing of ideas. These questions can even help you get to know someone in the group you may not know very well. You don’t even have to use the questions in order. If you know the people you are playing with better, you may start with the deeper questions right off the bat, so here is a list of our best would you rather questions to help you get started.

Here is a series of hilarious questions to ask friends, family, and even people you may be meeting for the first time.
1. Would you rather have constant bad body odor or farts that are always loud and stinky?
Smelliness will make them laugh every time.
2. Would you rather have hair that cannot be plucked growing out of your nose or out of your ears?
Maybe you like facial hair…
3. Would you rather use toilet paper made of sandpaper or never wipe yourself?
It’ll probably depend on how comfortable you are with discomfort.
4. Would you rather have your voice always shouting or always whispering?
Have your friends show you how loud and soft they can speak to help them decide.
5. Would you rather have a permanent bad haircut or permanent bad hair color?
Does everyone agree on what a bad cut looks like or which colors are constituted as bad? Either way, picturing your friends with bad cuts or colors is sure to give you a chuckle.
6. Would you rather share your house with a family of rats or with your parents forever?
Will this question be funny or hit a sore spot for you and your friends? (If your parents are playing with you, maybe you should skip this question.)
7. Would you rather suddenly become a CEO of a major company or suddenly be elected a senator? You will only have the knowledge you currently have about how to be/do either of these positions.
It might end up being a little like the movie Freaky Friday, right?
8. Would you rather only be able to wear a wedding dress/tuxedo every single day or just a bathing suit every single day?
The climate where you live may help you figure this one out. A swimsuit at a wedding would be quite a spectacle!
9. Would you rather have to keep moving whenever it is sunny or be unable to move your body every time it’s overcast?
People living in Washington state will be totally bored, while people in the Bahamas will get so worn out!

This will be the ultimate test of how much someone loves you!
12. Would you rather walk around the whole day with a giant brown stain on the back of your pants or realize that an important paper/project was due yesterday?
Which is more embarrassing? Failing academically or socially? Both of these are at stake here.
13. Would you rather have one extra nipple or one extra belly button?
These are some funky birth defects! Can you picture it? Can you think of how either of these would be helpful to you in life?
14. Would you rather be a character in a scary thriller movie or a romantic comedy?
Or maybe we should picture some horror characters being in romantic comedies. Now that would be a funny movie premise!
15. Would you rather be 11 inches tall or 15 feet tall?
If you really want to do some good research before answering this question, I recommend watching “The Incredible Shrinking Woman” (1981) and the 1958 hit “Attack of the 50 Foot Woman.” Both are Oscar quality (insert sarcasm)! Haha! Enjoy!
16. Would you rather work a shift with only your annoying boss or spend a full day with your mother-in-law?
Oh my! I can just hear all your mother-in-law jokes now!
17. Would you rather be gassy on your wedding night or first date?

Which would you prefer? Lots of big head rushes or just coming off as generally having a big-headed attitude?
22. Would you rather tell someone their new baby is ugly or their new spouse is ugly?
I hope there aren’t any of you out there who have ever done either of these two things, but you may see people trying to avoid doing it in sit-coms.
23. Would you rather have a voice that sounds like Janice from Friends or snort each time you laugh?
Ah, yes, I can hear your Janice impressions already! And some of my greatest friends snort when they laugh. So funny!

Y’all are starting to look like cartoon characters! I can’t tell if it’s funny or creepy!

I’ve always wanted to try dumpster-diving!

We probably already know people who have had the same haircut and clothes for forever!

They say music is the universal language, right?

1. Would you rather swim 100 meters through poop or human cadavers?
Well, you wanted gross? You got it!
2. Would you rather pull out all of your teeth or all of your hair?
Maybe this should be in the “Hard” category because choosing which beautiful thing to pull out is hard to decide.

This decision is a hard and crappy one…
4. Would you rather have snot that tastes like chocolate or saliva that tastes like earwax?

I’m grateful this is not actually a choice we have to make because it certainly is gross!
6. Would you rather give up one month of bathing or use of the internet?
Personally, I don’t know anyone who’s gone a month without bathing, but I’m certain it would be pretty gross.

Some people find these funny, others do not, but would you be able to hold down a job if either were a problem for you?
8. Would you rather always have to clean locker room bathrooms or a restaurant’s dishes?
Janitors and busboys will understand why this question is in the “gross” category. I’m sure the rest of you can only imagine…
9. Would you rather have constantly crusty booger eyes or a constant runny nose?
If either of these is your problem, you should probably go get an allergy test. If both of these are your problem, you’ll never be able to take good selfies!
10. Would you rather have fast-growing all-over body hair or a strong, pungent body odor?
One will get you into a circus freak show and one will get you kicked out of it!
11. Would you rather clean septic tanks or work in a slaughterhouse for a living?
That guy from the “Dirty Jobs” show has probably done both and could give you some really good advice on this one, but if you don’t know him personally, this could be a tough decision. We need to be grateful for people who are willing to do these jobs, though.
12. Would you rather you never have to poop again or never have to pee again?
With that shortage or toilet paper that happened during the COVID-19 outbreak, I know which one I would choose!
13. Would you rather have raging diarrhea at a concert or your wedding?
I think I’d put off the wedding or concert-going or I’d have to wear an adult diaper & just bear it!
14. Would you rather lick a filthy trash can or the bathroom floor?
Which one do you think will make you less sick afterward?
15. Would you rather your hero vomit on you or you vomit on your hero?
I hope none of you are ever in either of these situations! So, who do you want to have apologizing, you to your hero or your hero to you?
16. Would you rather wear the same socks for a month or the same underwear for a week?
Ummm…ever been to summer camp?
17. Would you rather never clip your toenails or never shower again?
Keep the body odor to a minimum, and watch those crusty bad boys grow.
18. Would you rather always have body odor you don’t realize you have or always have a magnified smell of everyone else’s body odor?
A world without any effective deodorants! Definitely gross!
19. Would you rather find a fat rat in your kitchen or a giant hissing cockroach in your bed?
Aaaaaaaaaaah! Oh, it’s just hypothetical.
20. Would you rather buy all used underwear or all used toothbrushes?
There are ways to clean both, but I’m still glad they don’t sell these at second-hand stores or yard sales.
21. Would you rather sleep in a dirty doghouse or let 5 stray dogs sleep in your bed?
Germophobes might leave your “Would You Rather” game at this point!

Anyone having flashbacks to that first-grade accident? No? Just me?
26. Would you rather be locked in a room with a tarantula for an hour (but not know where the tarantula is) or eat a live worm?
What you don’t know won’t hurt you, so I guess this depends on whether you know the tarantula is in the room or not.
27. Would you rather always have knotted hair or sweaty armpits?
Messy hair, don’t care. It’s a look, right?
28. Would you rather fart out loud during a presentation or experience a really ugly sneeze attack (snot on the sleeve and all) on a great first date?
The human body and all its wonders never cease to amaze.
29. Would you rather have explosive diarrhea every time you meet your boss or every time you meet your partner’s parents?
Don’t get your panties in a twist, just keep those baby wipes on hand!
30. Would you rather crap yourself in private every day for the rest of your life or crap your pants in public once a year for the rest of your life?
There are no good choices here.
31. Would you rather have uncontrollable gas on every first date for the rest of your life or uncontrollable gas at work for the rest of your life?
Things are about to get stinky…
32. Would you rather have bad acne that is only on areas normally covered with clothing or moderate acne just on your face?
You’ll have to decide which pain is harder to endure, physical or emotional.
33. Would you rather have a nice straight smile with deep yellow teeth or pearly white super crooked teeth?
Pretend that there is not a fix for either problem. Ugh!
34. Would you rather show up to work one day in your underwear or pee yourself during your own presentation in front of all your coworkers?
Both are embarrassing. Both are gross. Which is worse for you?
35. Would you rather permanently smell like gasoline or nail polish?
Well, there are some people who like the smell of both of these, so does this question really belong in the “gross” category?
36. Would you rather sleep in dirty sheets for the rest of your life or only be able to shower once every three weeks?
Prepare for greasy hair and some new and exotic flavors of BO.
37. Would you rather constantly smell like gasoline or nail polish remover?
Just have an extra flammable personality to match the aromatic aesthetic.
38. Would you rather fart really loud every time you laugh or tear up and get sniffly every time you speak?
Just blame it on the allergies.
39. Would you rather have hands for feet or feet for hands?
Would a handstand just be a regular-stand?
40. Would you rather lick a person’s face every time they shake your hand or scream “I didn’t wash my hands!” to all of your coworkers every time you come out of the bathroom?
This could go in the ‘weird’ category, but there’s a lot of face-licking grossness to this question, too.
41. Would you rather peel off a hobo’s scabs with your bare hands or suck on sweaty socks?
If this one makes you gag, just know that you’re not the only one.
42. Would you rather slurp up someone else’s steamy vomit through a straw once or only be able to drink liquids that have your own old, crusty vomit swirled in them every day for the rest of your life?
There’s no way you didn’t resist the urge to vomit while reading this question.

Yeah, you might want to consider seeing a physician about that…
46. Would you rather eat someone’s goopy eye boogers or drink a shot of your own urine?
Take consolation in the knowledge that you are responsible for what you put in your own body, but you have no idea what someone else puts in theirs. And, as everyone knows, what goes in, must come out.
47. Would you rather roll in dog feces or swim in cat urine?
Let’s just NOT.

51. Would you rather always have a huge loogie hanging out of your nose or have the most pungent body odor anyone has ever smelled?
This brings me back to seventh grade, when things were a lot simpler and the lines between adulthood and childhood were blurred just enough to scar us all for life.

Kinda gruesome and morbid, but gross enough to make it into our list.

Not gross, per say, but aggravating to the max.

If this doesn’t make you rethink your definition of ‘gross’, I don’t know what will.
65. Would you rather find out after the end of a meal that someone spat in your food or that they put their toenail clippings into your food?
So, I’m noticing a trend. The grossest things mostly include ingestion of someone else’s bodily waste.
66. Would you rather have to use a stranger’s toilet to go diarrhea or have a stranger use your toilet to go diarrhea?
Let’s all keep our toilets to ourselves, thank you very much.
67. Would you rather lick a stranger’s scab or swallow one of your own?

69. Would you rather have the constant taste of bile in your mouth or the constant smell of farts in your nose?
Either way, nothing you eat will taste good ever again.
70. Would you rather eat feces that tastes like chocolate, or eat chocolate that tastes like poop?
This leads right into the food category.
Eating is a bonding experience and everyone has their opinions about the food they eat, so learn more about the opinions of your friends with these questions.
1. Would you rather eat thick or thin clam chowder?
Where you were raised in America will probably make the difference of opinion here.

Maybe someone out there actually thinks these are both good, but that’s doubtful.

This is an important thing to decide. The right food can make or break any celebration, right?

Which spice level do you usually choose at Asian restaurants? This will help you decide your answer to this question.

Asian or Latin, which food suits your fancy, and which could you be happy with for the rest of your life?

This is tough one for people who find it hard to enjoy a meal or movie without a good soda on hand.

I bet I know which one coffee-lovers will choose!

If you are from certain countries, you will find these to be a delicacy. If you are not, it may be time to expand your palette!
15. Would you rather live in a world where only rice exists & no bread or the other way around?
The uses for each are so different, but this choice will depend on what we were raised with.
16. Would you rather have unlimited theme park visits or eat unlimited from drive-through restaurants?

Would either of these abilities really be that helpful in life?
18. Would you rather have everything you eat be too salty or never salty enough?
If you don’t like salty flavors, this is easier. When things are too salty, that may cause health problems, so which will you choose?
19. Would you rather eat a ketchup sandwich or a Siracha sandwich?
These are oozing with sauce! Which is your favorite? Which could you stomach?
20. Would you rather eat a box of dry spaghetti noodles or two cups of uncooked rice?
I hope nobody loses a tooth trying to figure out their answer to this one! And remember that both soak up stomach juices after being eaten, so be careful not to let your stomach get too full if you eat this stuff.
21. Would you rather eat a spoonful of wasabi or a ghost pepper?
If you want to try these to get your answer, be sure to have vanilla ice cream and lots of tissues on hand!

Music or food, can anyone really choose between the two? What would be the most fun for you to do?
23. Would you rather swim in a pool filled with Nutella or a pool full of maple syrup?

24. Would you rather eat a dozen donuts or a bucketful of candy?
Better watch those blood glucose levels…

Which do you hate more, cleaning or cooking? Imagine being wealthy and being able to have both…..Nice, right?

It does have a lot of vitamin C, right? Just make sure you don’t get bloated from overeating it.
27. Would you rather eat a whole lime or a raw potato?
Pinch your nose and close your eyes, cause it’s about to get sour.
28. Would you rather hunt, skin, drain, butcher and package all your own meat or never eat meat again?
Some would invite such a challenge. Others would become vegetarian/vegan.

Before you answer, think carefully about how much you love your favorite food and how healthy it would or wouldn’t help you to be.
30. Would you rather have 10,000 spoons when all you need is a knife or always have 10,000 knives when all you need is a spoon?
Get it? Any ‘90s music fans? Can anyone say this question is ironic?

38. Would you rather give up fast food or sweets?
Cravings come and go, but McDonald’s is forever.

You can never go wrong with a croissant, though, am I right?
40. Would you rather be able to eat everything you ever wanted and still have a healthy, fit body, or buy everything you want and never run out of money?
I like these questions where you can be amazingly happy in either choice.
41. Would you rather have to eat the exact thing prepared the same exact way every single day but it’s free, or be able to eat whatever you want but the price is double the going rate?
For creatures of habit, this is a no-brainer!
42. Would you rather permanently give up salts or sweets?
Popcorn or chocolate? Chips or cookies? What would happen to trail mixes?!?
43. Would you rather be permanently thirsty or always nauseous?
Should this question be in the “hard” section? I think so…

Where will you get the most full if the food is free? Where does the best food really reside?

Chocolate milk does a body good.
49. Would you rather go 90 days without your cell phone or your entire life without any desserts/treats?
My connections or my treats? Shouldn’t this question be in the “hard” section?
50. Would you rather eat gross food for a month or eat only one thing that you definitely like for the rest of your life?
You have to really think here. Maybe you could handle eating the same thing every day, but how long would the rest of your life be if you did?
51. Would you rather never eat Christmas cookies ever again or never eat Halloween candy ever again?
Which one is your favorite holiday?

Yummy snacks if you like a broken jaw or the taste of blood in your mouth. Yikes.

If you’ve never had Pad Thai, just skip over this question.
65. Would you rather live in a world where the only thing to eat is tasteless kale or literal grass (but you’re allowed to put salad dressing on it)?
If you think about it, what is the essence of a salad, really?
66. Would you rather have guacamole or queso with your nachos?
Cheeses come and go, but guac is forever.

Make this your New Years’ Resolution.
68. Would you rather have pancakes or crepes?
Nutella goes good on both!

Maybe save this one for people who will love you no matter which answer you give.
7. Would you rather live in the glade from Maze Runner or a district from Hunger Games?
You’ll need to make sure your game group has seen these movies. If not, maybe pause this game and have a movie night. Then you can have a good debate about this.

This one will take into account your world-view, cultural preferences, need for comfort, and maybe even your music preferences.
9. Would you rather only be able to tell the truth or always have others tell you the truth?
People who value integrity might have an easy time answering.

Survivalists will have a heyday with this question. The rest of us will not like either option.
12. Would you rather have to always watch your favorite show live including all the commercials, or be able to watch the show without commercials any time you want, but never get to see the ending?
You can still ask your friends about the endings, but is that ever as good as seeing it? How much do you like commercials? These are the important things to know about yourself, right?

For people who hate reading, this should be an easy one….or will it be?

Are you more rustic or tropical? Woodsman or Beach Bum?
20. Would you rather give up watching TV/movies for a year or give up playing video games for a year?
This is probably an easy answer for adults and a harder answer for young kids.
21. Would you rather have free Wi-Fi wherever you go forever or always have full battery power for your phone/tablet?
If you are a homebody or quarantined, neither of these is an issue, but if you ever go out, you’ll find one or the other of these choices more useful.
22. Would you rather travel anywhere for 4 weeks a year all expenses paid or have $40,000 each year to spend on whatever you want besides travel?
If you have wanderlust or are a homebody, this may be the easiest question here…or is it?
23. Would you rather have everything in your house be perfectly organized by a professional or do you want to be the best professional organizer in the world?
OCD friends, can I get a “Woohoo”? People definitely will easily lean one way or the other on this question. There is probably very little gray area here.

Being without both is real for lots of people, but if you have the luxury to choose, which would it be?
25. Would you rather be alone for the rest of your life or always be surrounded by annoying people?

26. Would you rather be able to travel but unable to learn any different language or be unable to travel but fluent in all languages?
If you speak English, this may still work out for you to be able to travel, because lots of people in other countries know English. But there are many places where you can get swindled if you don’t speak their language. Hmmm…maybe this question should be in the “hard” category.

Does how people view you matter to you? Are you just wanting to be remembered for anything, or does that not even matter?

Your work ethic and how you view rewards will be revealed in answering this question.
29. Would you rather live in a house with glass walls in a city or in the middle of a forest far from anyone or anything?
You’d have to get creative with privacy if you’re in a house like that in the city, but the freedom of the forest can become lonely if left by yourself for long.
30. Would you rather get cash or gifts for your birthdays?
There really are only two kinds of people in this world, don’t ya know? Cash people and gift people…Which are you?

Do you want everyone to know your thoughts or to never be able to say any of them?

I’ve sung in front of both and still don’t know which I would choose. What would you say are the advantages and disadvantages of each?
36. Would you rather spend two weeks in a psychiatric hospital or an airport?
Either one could make you lose your marbles! Maybe this should be in the “hard” category…
37. Would you rather be given a lifetime supply of delicious books or delicious food?
One option feeds the mind and soul, the other feeds the body, so you must decide which is more important to you.
38. If you had to give up one thing for the rest of your life, would it be brushing your teeth or brushing your hair?
If you’re bald, this is a no-brainer! For the rest of us, smelly breath & rotting teeth or a rat’s nest on your head? Tough!
39. Would you rather have your debts gone or have good health for 10 years?

Which way are you more artistic? Writing stories or lyrics and notes?

Having a day off of school or work because it’s snowing is the best! How will you choose to spend it?
45. Would you rather never be able to go out during the day or at night?
Before you answer, think about what it would be like to have your entire life lived this way. Does that change your initial answer?
46. Would you rather only be able to crawl around on all fours or only be able to walk facing backwards?

If you already have integrity, you’ll answer one way and could charge a lot for your services.

Both would be nice in emergencies, but which is more essential to you?
10. Would you rather be lost in a bad part of town or lost in an enchanted forest?
Your survival depends on how well you can fight or on how many spells you know, right?
11. Would you rather have the ability to be completely invisible or be able to fly?
What could you experience or see by being invisible? Where would you go and what would you see if you could fly?
12. Would you rather be locked in a room that is constantly bright for a week or a dark for a week?
You have nothing to help you see or block light. Which do you think would be harder on your body & mind?
13. Would you rather be constantly hungry no matter how much you eat or tired no matter how much you sleep?
Being exhausted & grouchy, or hangry, which is worse? No one will want to be around you either way!
14. Would you rather cease to exist after you die or be reincarnated as a fly?
Do you believe in reincarnation as a creature or does it sound nicer to just be done & gone forever?
15. Would you rather donate your body when you die to science or your organs to people who need them?
Both are great causes, but do you want to help more immediately or further in the future?
16. Would you rather live your entire life in the real world or in a virtual reality where all your wishes are granted?
Too many people are already living virtual lives, but does it make them happy? Will it make them happy if they are in that virtual world full time? Hmmm…
17. Would you rather have all corporations or the government see all of your computer usage?
Which one would you trust more? Or is this already our reality? Hmmm…
18. Would you rather live in a haunted house where the ghosts ignore you and don’t even know you are there or be a ghost in your house alone?
Could this be a movie? Sounds like some television shows have been broadcasting this stuff already.
19. Would you rather your shirts be always one size too small or two sizes too big?
Acceptable shirt tightness changes with the styles of the times. ’90’s kids love the baggy shirt and 2000’s kids love the tight shirt. Which do you identify with?
20. Would you rather have your hands or feet keep growing or as you got older?
How old do you wish to get? At what rate will they grow? I know some basketball players that this seems to already happen to!
21. Would you rather everything you dream come true or nothing you dream ever come true?
Anyone here prone to night terrors? I hope those won’t come true!
22. Would you rather kill Hitler before the Holocaust or Thanos before he destroyed any worlds?
We are assuming here that Thanos really exists, of course.
23. Would you rather live in a world populated only by you and clones of yourself or populated by only yourself and 3 billion cute dogs?
How much do you like yourself? How much do you like dogs? Tough decision, right?
24. Would you rather change your eye color or your hair color any time you please?
Either one could be really fun to play around with.
25. Would you rather have a magic carpet that flies or your own personal robot?
One could show you the world, the other might get glitchy.
26. Would you rather be the worst player on a team that never loses or the best player on a team that never wins?
You can’t have it all.
27. Would you rather have two noses or one eye in the middle of your head?
Cyclops vs. sneeze machine? Let’s not think about allergy season.
28. Would you rather grow an extra toe or an extra finger?
A life spent in flip-flops or a whole lotta’ high-sixes?
29. Would you rather have skin that changes color based on your emotions or daily tattoos that appear depicting everything you did the day before?
Think about it, did you go to the bathroom yesterday or take a shower? Oh my!
30. Would you rather be in a zombie or robot apocalypse?
Depends on which kinds of robots and which kinds of zombies, right?
31. Would you rather have to wear stilettos to bed every night or have to wear slippers everywhere you go?
Can we bring in our friends with shoe fetishes to help answer this one?
32. Would you rather always breathe like Darth Vader or always talk like Yoda?
Either one may get you free tickets into Comic-cons, but I’m thinking they both will start to bug your friends real soon!
33. Would you rather have a hand half as small or twice as big?
Alright guys, these would-you-rather questions are getting out of hand.
34. Would you rather spontaneously sprout butterfly wings or grow yourself a horsetail out of nowhere?
Majestic is the magic word. In Narnia, you’d fit right in.
35. Would you rather have wings that don’t let you fly or gills that don’t let you breathe underwater?
You know what they say: those who can’t, teach.
36. Would you rather transform into a unicorn or a Pegasus?
And the headbutting begins…
37. Would you rather meet your favorite superhero or your favorite cartoon character?
As a great woman once said, “NO CAPES!”
38. Would you rather always smell like a skunk or sweat honey?
Livin’ sticky or stinky…
39. Would you rather own a car that can fly or turn into a submarine?
Oh, and don’t forget to pick up a chocolate frog when you’re catching up to the Hogwarts Express!
40. Would you rather be the fastest person alive or have the ability to pause time?
Run as fast as you can and, according to every DC comic, you can turn back time, anyways…
41. Would you rather get stuck in a room with a gentle tiger or 10 angry bumblebees?
If we were in a Disney movie, this wouldn’t even be a hard choice.
42. Would you rather get your head stuck in a bucket or your foot caught in a block of drying cement?
Don’t try this at home, kids.
43. Would you rather have a blue nose or neon pink ears?
Don’t think too hard on this one. You’d be famous for either.
44. Would you rather moo like a cow or bark like a dog after every sentence?
Barking sounds a little more menacing, but good luck making friends with either of these.
45. Would you rather find hidden treasure or discover a living dinosaur?
With enough treasure and a little bit of luck, you could recreate Jurassic Park.
46. Would you rather never be able to wake yourself up from a nightmare or always wake up in the middle of a good dream and not be able to fall back to sleep?
This sounds like a concept from a horror movie.
47. Would you rather have a head the size of a watermelon or baseball?
The bigger your head, the less you gotta’ worry about. Or is it the other way around?
48. Would you rather be a vampire or a wizard?
Drink blood or potions? Be irresistibly sexy or have power over things?
49. Would you rather be able to talk with animals or read other people’s minds?
Who do you think is more interesting, the animal or the human?
50. Would you rather have your feet be a second pair of hands or your hands be a second pair of feet?
Are we on the planet of the apes?
51. Would you rather have super crooked teeth that are pearly white or a straight, flawless smile with grossly yellow teeth?
Say cheese and hope that your teeth don’t look like literal cheese!
52. Would you rather wear the same outfit for the rest of your existence or have every single piece of clothing you own have a massive brown stain on it?
There are different shades of brown, so this question is pretty subjective.
53. Would you rather show up to work one day with no pants, or pee yourself during a presentation in front of all your coworkers?
That recurring nightmare that you always wake up from in a cold sweat? Yeah, Endangered Emoji’s got that covered, too.
54. Would you rather be compelled to somehow include the word ‘moist’ into every conversation or have a piece of pepper permanently stuck in your front row of teeth?
Call yourself the moistening conversationalist!
55. Would you rather have the superpower of strength or invisibility?
If you had both, you’d be like “a fly on the wall.” Ya, I know that’s a bad joke. Forgive me.
56. Would you rather know how to ride a unicycle on a tight rope or complete a Rubik’s cube in 20 seconds?
Either one would be cool to show off at parties, right?
57. Would you rather live to 100, but stuck in a child’s body, or live to be 50 as a normal aging human being?
Benjamin Button comes to mind.
58. Would you rather see the ghosts of dead people or hear their voices?
Wanna know what they are trying to tell you or not? Do they have anything interesting to say or are they a bit dumb?
59. Would you rather die by zombie apocalypse or shark-nado?
The flying great whites have struck again!
60. Would you rather have an elephant trunk or a giraffe neck?
Like that one kid with the gills…
61. Would you rather swallow a handful of poison ivy or a handful of wasps?
This sounds like a death trap.

If you’re afraid of clowns, you won’t have to worry about having nightmares ever again.
63. Would you rather your legs become as long as your fingers or your fingers become as long as your legs?
There’s always room at the Circus. Go ahead and make your own musical!
64. Would you rather be covered in hair or be completely hairless?
Like the naked mole rats of people…
65. Would you rather get amnesia and not remember who you or anyone you know is or wake up from a coma with your memory, but you’ve missed five years of your life?
Many a fast-paced mystery novel has been born of this concept.
66. Would you rather be in a dark and scary room for days all by yourself or be in a well-lit room alone with Michael Jackson?
I don’t know about you, but this man scares the living daylights out of me.
67. Would you rather never play or always lose?
Give the sore loser in your family an ultimatum with this question.
68. Would you rather give up your computer or your pet?
It’s sad to think some people would choose the latter.
69. Would you rather know it all or have it all?
Be careful, these are very relative terms.
70. Would you rather be three feet taller or three feet shorter?
As a shortie myself, I know which I’d choose.
Ask questions that require your friends to decide between good, better, and best answers. These are the hardest kinds of questions to answer.
1. Which one would you rather keep, your cell phone or your car?
This answer will be different within different age groups.
2. Would you rather have no TV/movies or no music?
Can you really have one without the other?
3. Would you rather only be able to use pens or pencils?
Are you confident with a pen or know you’re gonna make mistakes?
4. Would you rather be an airplane pilot or the captain of a ship?
Fear of heights may determine this answer for some of us.
5. Would you rather be able to move anywhere in space or anywhere in time?
You may want to give a lot of time to answer this one. Get it…time?
6. Would you rather be confined and safe or unconfined and free?
Answers will be influenced by your confidence level or desire to face dangerous things in life. Philosophically, this one is definitely hard.
7. Would you rather have the ability to read people’s minds or make people think whatever you want them to?
The value you place on agency vs. control will be in these answers.
8. Would you rather always have to wear sweatpants or never be able to wear sweatpants again?
Yes! This question does belong in the “Hard” section!
9. Would you rather find true love in a year or win the lottery tomorrow?
Love and money are the two largest driving forces in life, making this difficult to answer.
10. Would you rather lose a year off the end of your natural life or be in jail for a year?
Either way, one year is gone…
11. Would you rather know how above or below average you are at everything you do or know how above or below average other people are just by looking at them?
Who are we to judge? But this could definitely come in handy in job interviews!
12. Would you rather live without central air and heating or without the internet?
By far, this has got to be the most difficult question in this post!
13. Would you rather live the next 10 years of your life in a socialist country or a capitalist country?
This kind of subject seems to be under debate every time an election rolls around. Politically-minded people could spend hours on this question!
14. Would you rather, on a weekly basis, lose your phone or your keys?
The answer to this one is hard. Just reading it gives me anxiety!
15. Would you rather have incurable chapped lips or terrible untreatable dandruff?
Sadly, some people feel that they are already this way, but if you had to choose, which would be worse for you?
16. Would you rather never need to do any work again or never need sleep again?
Wanna be awake day and night or be able to be in a permanent retirement?
17. Would you rather be an artist who can’t see any art you create or be a musician who can’t hear the music you create?
Is the description of your work or the enjoyment your work creates in others enough to keep you creating or not?
18. Would you rather sell one of your organs or all of your possessions?
Either one will hurt, so would you rather go through physical pain or emotional pain?
19. Would you rather always be angry or envious?
Either way, you can’t feel very happy, right? But which one feels worse?
20. Would you rather be poor but rely on a rich person for what you get or become incredibly rich by hurting people?
What will this tell you about who people are? It’s a good thing that being rich doesn’t usually involve having to hurt others to be wealthy.
21. Would you rather lose all of your memories from birth to now or never be able to retain any more memories from now on?
Are your earlier years precious to you or painful? Are you an optimist about what your future holds? Talk about an identity crisis either way!
22. Would you rather report a crime your best friend committed or go to jail for the crime they committed?
True benevolence or honesty is a hard thing to decide between.
23. Would you rather have two years with your soul mate before they die and you never love again or spend your life with someone nice you kind of like?
What do you think your heart could handle? You will learn a lot about your views and those of your friends about love with this question.
24. Would you rather go into the past and meet your ancestors or into the future and meet your descendants?
We can learn a lot from our ancestors, but we can see how impactful our choices are by meeting our descendants. Either way, we’d be a changed person.
25. Would you rather be able to control every dream you have but never remember them or remember every dream you have, but not have control over any of them?
If you enjoy your dreams already, this is an easy one, but if they are troubled, control would be your best choice.
26. Would you rather put a stop to war or end world hunger?
Would ending the world’s hunger have an impact on war or not? Lots to think about here.
27. Would you rather die before or after your spouse?
Statistically, husbands die before their wives, but what if you had the choice?
28. Would you rather get rich through hard work or by winning the lottery?
Hard work takes longer, but with the lottery, you’ll probably be asked by “friends” for lots of help. This is a tough one.
29. Would you rather have a 5-hour meeting with a headstrong politician with opposing political views, or attend a 5-hour concert by a music group you detest?
Oh, man! Which one will give you a bigger headache?
30. Would you rather be bored or too busy?
Well, after that COVID-19 outbreak, we all know what being bored really feels like, so maybe your answer to this one was different before that.
31. Would you rather have your first child when you are 18 or 40?
Should you become a parent when you are young and more energetic or older and wiser?
32. Would you rather be filthy rich and live 500 years ago or be poor but live now?
Some people say that today’s poor live better than yesteryear’s wealthy. What do you think?
33. Would you rather spend a year as a teacher or a police officer in an inner-city neighborhood?
Neither get enough respect or thanks. Neither are safe in an inner-city setting, either.
34. Would you rather mentally or physically never age?
If you’re like Dick Clark, physically aging was never an issue, but most of us don’t have this blessing.
35. Would you rather have everyone respect you or unlimited power over everyone?
Does power or influence over people happen if they respect you or not? How would you use your power?
36. Would you rather you can only text with emojis or you’re never able to text again?
There are so many emojis now that this might not be the worst thing in the world for you. It would be like the Egyptians and their hieroglyphics, but people misinterpret those often. Hmmm…this may not be as simple of a choice as it first appears.
37. Would you rather design a new brand of toy or get the opportunity to direct a movie?
Watch out Toy Story, you’re about to meet your box office match.
38. Would you rather spend a year at war or a year in prison?
Some of our greatest generation heroes had to do both! They served and spent time as Prisoners of War. Take the time to think about that and be grateful for them as you answer this question.
39. Would you rather star in a movie or become best friends with your favorite celebrity?
Well, with the right people skills, you could do both.
40. Would you rather have no children or a child every year for 20 years?
Believe it or not, there are some families who have actually had kids that close together for nearly 20 years! Would you be willing to do that in order to avoid having none at all?
41. Would you rather give up your TV or your phone?
This is a tough one. Don’t get too caught up, though; you’ll always have your Macbook.
42. Would you rather be stranded in a massive desert or on a deserted island?
WILSON!!! Oh, ahem, excuse me.
43. Would you rather give up one month of using your cell phone or bathing?
I’m glad there are ways we can communicate besides cell phones because I need my body odor to stay in check! On the other hand, anyone got any tips for cleaning yourself without bathing?
44. Would you rather change the outcome of the last presidential election or get to choose the next president?
Ooooh! Get ready for a fight on this one!
45. Would you rather ask your ex or a total stranger for a favor?
Can we choose which ex we have to ask?
46. Would you rather instantly qualify as an Olympic athlete or be elected as President?
Mr. President, sir, put down the ski poles.
47. Would you rather not be allowed to eat any chocolate, sweets, or candy for a year or be banned from watching TV for a year?
What is “TV” really? There’s definitely room for interpretation, right?
48. Would you rather spend a Saturday playing paintball or laser tag?
Saturdays are for the boyz…
49. Would you rather live in the North or South Pole?
We all know where Santa is, but head South and you get all the cutest penguins.
50. Would you rather sprout 2 extra arms or 2 extra legs?
Personally, I think anyone with four arms could probably take over the world.
51. Would you rather have a giant butterfly or a miniature giraffe as a pet?
I’ve heard that butterflies are a lot uglier up close.
52. Would you rather be stuck wearing a red clown nose or a rainbow wig for the rest of your life?
I mean, I guess you’d get used to it, but there’s also plastic surgery.
53. Would you rather only be able to wear only a swimsuit all winter or ski pants and a winter coat for the entire summer?
The less you shave, the warmer you are. And that’s a fact.
54. Would you rather be besties with Superman or Spiderman?
Peter Parker is the literal cutest, but how about them sound barrier-breaking abs?
55. Would you rather get stranded in the desert or Antarctica?
I hear you die of frostbite faster than dehydration.
56. Would you rather be constantly itchy or experience excruciating pain for a whole day once a year?
What kind of pain are we talking about?
57. Would you rather be able to transform into an animal of your choice or have mind control over an animal of your choice?
This one’s for the fantasy-lovers.
58. Would you rather pull all the teeth out of your mouth or peel all your nails out of your fingers?
This one’s painful, but it all depends on if you’re cool with sippin’ smoothies for the rest of your life.
59. Would you rather be uber-rich but suffer depression or be poor and happy?
Like they always say, you can’t buy happiness.
60. Would you rather be a plain-looking hilarious person or a super boring extremely good-looking person?
Do you crave positive attention for your looks more than your personality?
61. Would you rather be cheated on or be the cheater who gets away with it?
Truly a question of your strength of character and integrity.
62. Would you rather always have a spotless kitchen and a disgusting bedroom, or a disgusting kitchen and a spotless bedroom?
This question will drive germaphobes insane! You have to have both!!….But you can only choose one…
63. Would you rather be the author of Twilight or the writer of every Nickelback song?
Bring on the 2000s cringe in all its low-waisted, fanged, sparkly glory.
64. Would you rather find love at first sight that lasts for 20 years, or find true love that takes you 50 years to find?
There are plenty of love songs about both kinds of love, but none of them will help you answer this question.
65. Would you rather be in a family with people who never argue or people who never hug?
One may be easier to do without than the other, but which one is better to have in your life?
66. Would you rather change everything you want to about your appearance or your personality?
Oof! Insecurities will all be out on the table with this question!
67. Would you rather have a child who is kind or a child who is smart?
I hope y’all help your children to be both, but is one more important than the other? Why?
68. Would you rather save three other people from a burning building with a 60% chance that you survive, or jump by yourself from a burning building with a 99% chance of survival?
I know of a scripture about the love of a person who would give their life for others. It’s a very good thing, but do you think you could really risk your life for others?
69. Would you rather be able to speak to animals or be proficient in every world language?
Kinda like you’re living in a real-life Disney simulation.
70. Would you rather paint an entire wall with just your face or just your knees?
Either way, you’ll be there all day. Just remember to keep your mouth closed!
Getting to know someone’s philosophies on life can bring you all closer. These deep questions can help you with this.
1. Would you rather be on a deserted island for the rest of your life with the love of your life or your best friend?
Maybe it depends on whether or not you consider the love of your life your best friend.
2. Would you rather have a high-paying job under a horrible boss or a low-paying job under an incredible boss?
What are you truly willing to endure… low-quality people or low-quality stuff?
3. Would you rather change something from your past or avoid something horrible in the future?
The ability to time travel would be helpful with this one.
4. Would you rather have to show on your face no emotion you feel or every emotion you feel?
This will delve into your level of willingness to let people into your life and your feelings.
5. Would you rather be born black or white?
This can give rise to some deep-seated beliefs about racial ideas or prejudices.
6. Would you rather live in a dystopia or utopia?
There are plenty of fantasy or sci-fi novels and movies to help you decide this one.
7. Would you rather be religious or atheist?
Your group may take an eternity to chat about this one. Where that eternity will be spent is up for debate with this question.
8. Would you rather marry someone who loves you or someone you love?
In both cases, the marriage probably wouldn’t last under these circumstances…or could it?
9. Would you rather marry the most beautiful person alive or marry the wisest person alive?
It seems like an easy answer, but remember that there are advantages and disadvantages in life from both scenarios.
10. Would you rather become 5 years old again, but know everything you do now or stay your age and learn everything your future self will learn?
Would knowing those things at either age make life exciting any longer, or would you end up bored with no stretching of your mind happening?
11. Would you rather move to a new city or town every week or never leave the city or town where you were born?
Do you have wanderlust or do you enjoy your comfort zone?
12. Would you rather be good-looking and stupid or ugly and wise?
Deep philosophical ideas can be delved into with this one because it all depends on what we see as important in life. Where do our priorities lie?
13. Would you rather lose your short-term memory or long-term memory?
If you have already lost both, this won’t be a hard question. If you still have both, share why you would choose one over the other. What are the advantages and disadvantages? What are you willing to let go of?
14. Would you rather lose all of your friends except for your best friend or just lose your best friend?
How many friends do you feel you need? If your best friend is amazing, but you love being a social butterfly, this will be a hard one. Priorities will be touched on with these answers.
15. Would you rather be unable to have babies or only conceive quintuplets?
The drive to have or not have children is deep-seated in most people. Some strong opinions and values will be brought up as you discuss this one.
16. Would you rather lose all your cash, assets and valuables or all the photos you have ever taken?
Memories or belongings? People or things? This debate could take a while…
17. Would you rather be loved more by your parents or your friends?
This may change over time in your life and depends on how good you feel your parents are to you.
18. Would you rather have everything on your phone (browsing history, photos, etc.) be shown to the public or never use a cell phone again?
If you have things on your phone to be ashamed of or embarrassed about, this one is tougher. Maybe a landline is just what you need, though!
19. Would you rather be feared or admired by all?
Do you care about what others think of you? What kind of leader would you end up being if either of these were the case?
20. Would you rather have no government or a corrupt government?
Hopefully, you won’t have a political science major in your group to debate this with you. FYI, talking politics like this during Thanksgiving can end up saving you from having to buy gifts for certain people come the holidays.
21. Would you rather know the truth about everything or believe the comforting lies?
Truth can be painful, but so can lies. It brings up the debate of whether we should choose to be kind or honest. The two don’t always coexist. How does that fair in your mind?
22. Would you rather have to kill one innocent person or five minor criminals?
Which one wins out in your mind, the law or the individual?
23. Would you rather have political power and be poor or be wealthy with no political power?
Does money always equal power? Which can do the most good in this world, money or power?
24. Would you rather know every outcome of every choice you make or understand all the mysteries of the universe?
Which one could benefit you more? Which one will benefit humanity more? And which one of those is more important to you?
25. Would you rather have your family love you while the public hates you or the other way around?
This will be telling about your view of family vs humanity in general. Who is more important to you and why?
26. Would you rather live in a world populated only by you and clones of yourself or populated by only yourself and 3 billion people you have no chance at being better than?
Do you feel the need to be better than others? Are you ok with feeling inferior all the time? How much could you stand living with yourself?
27. Would you rather have your dream retirement or your dream childhood?
Which part of your life do you think is more important to enjoy? Maybe some of you had an ideal childhood…
28. Would you rather have a fast-forward button or a rewind button on your life?
You could skip over hard times or relive great times. There are a lot of options in either scenario.
29. Would you rather keep being yourself or be someone else?
You’ll have to dig deep to find out how happy you are with who you are. Is the grass really greener on the other side or is it just an illusion?
30. Would you rather go on a cruise with friends or with your spouse?
This question is assuming your spouse is not one of your friends, but I hope that’s not the case.
31. Would you rather be single forever or in an arranged marriage?
Have any of you seen “Fiddler on the Roof” with the lead character and his wife? If not, watch this before you answer this question.
32. Would you rather lose your sight or your memory?
Losing sight causes lots of hardships and learning to interact with the world a whole different way. Losing memory may turn you into a whole different kind of person. Which do you think would be easier to let go of and adjust to?
33. Would you rather be the funniest person on earth or the smartest person to ever live?
If we have tests to measure intelligence, why don’t we have them for comical genius?
34. Would you rather be eight years older or five years younger?
This one might take a bit of introspection…
35. Would you rather die in 20 years with no regrets or live to 99 with loads of regrets?
Live life well or live life long?
36. Would you rather be the smartest person to ever live or the best athlete in history?
I guess it all comes down to boring old preference on this one.
37. Would you rather have 5 sisters or 5 brothers?
Things around the house are about to get interesting (and loud)…
38. Would you rather work as a doctor or a police officer?
You save lives with both–the best type of professions.
39. Would you rather lose all of the money you’ve earned this year or all the memories you’ve made?
You can’t put a price on time.
40. Would you rather know the cause or the date of your death?
Either way, you’ll be living in fear.
41. Would you rather immediately win $10 or flip a coin for a chance to win $20?
The answer to this one can tell you a lot about a person.
42. Would you rather be the judge who decides who gets executed or the executioner?
There is no right answer to this question.
43. Would you rather go deaf or blind?
The impossible choice between a silent world or a dark one…
44. Would you rather marry someone good-looking who isn’t attracted to you or someone ugly who thinks you’re gorgeous?
There’s no way to quantify the beauty of the soul.
45. Would you rather take your dream job if it only pays enough money for basic necessities or work a high-paying job that you hate?
Can you put a price on happiness?
46. Would you rather forget your favorite movies so you can rewatch them again for the first time or forget your favorite books so you can reread them for the first time?
Remember how you felt the first time you read/watched Harry Potter?
47. Would you rather be able to change the future or the past with your mind?
You could do a number on the economy, that’s for sure.
48. Would you rather have thought bubbles appear over your head or let everyone have access to your search history?
This could ruin your relationships or strengthen them.
49. Would you rather be 4 years old or 90 years old your entire life?
Lots of drool and everyone taking care of you? Sounds fine to me.
50. Would you rather save 4 of your closest family members or 100 strangers?
This really makes you think about your priorities…
51. Would you rather have a large group of shallow friends or only one close, loyal friend?
The Mean Girls plot comes to mind…
52. Would you rather lose all your friends and win the lottery or keep your friends but never get a raise for the rest of your life?
You can’t put a price on friendship.
53. Would you rather die before or after your spouse?
Here’s lookin’ at you, kid. *sniffles*
54. Would you rather win the lottery but die of a heart attack at 60, or live to be 200 years old?
A lot can change in 200 years. Imagine the things you’d be able to see.
55. Would you rather never age physically or mentally?
This one depends on what age’s mental state you’ll never move on from. Don’t get yourself stuck with a five-year-old brain!
56. Would you rather be able to press the pause or the rewind button on your life?
You’ve got regrets. Join the club.
57. Would you rather be drowned or burned to death?
This one’s particularly morbid, but everyone loves a martyr.
58. Would you rather get married to the person of your dreams or land your dream job?
They say love conquers all, but they never specify what that entails…
59. Would you rather have eternal life or die in the next ten minutes?
Forever can get pretty lonely, or so I hear.
60. Would you rather build a time machine that only goes backward or forward in time?
If you can change the past, you can always change the future.
61. Would you rather have everything you’ve ever wanted but have one year left to live or continue living your life as it is now?
This answer to this question says a lot about a person.
62. Would you rather appear irresistibly attractive to your partner and unattractive to everyone else, or attractive to everyone else but extremely unattractive to your partner?
Who matters most to you? Could you handle one scenario better than the other? How would you do it?
63. Would you rather people think your significant other is way out of your league or that you are way out of your significant other’s league?
There’s a lot to consider here, but doesn’t your opinion of the significant other matter most in the end, anyway?
64. Would you rather save up your money for the down payment on a house or spend it on fun adventures?
This is in the “deep” category because immediate vs. delayed gratification is a complicated and deep debate within ourselves.
65. Would you rather hear your loved ones say, “I love you” too often or not often enough?
You’ll find out about how people were raised and their different comfort levels with this expression. How willing to open up will you and your friends be about this?
66. Would you rather die happy in five years or unhappy in fifty years?
This one really makes you think.
67. Would you rather have your significant other always telling you their thoughts about you or always telling you they’re “fine” when you ask?
This is really more of a conversation starter than a would you rather question, but it digs deep into how much you value honesty vs. kindness. The two don’t always mix.
68. Would you rather have everlasting happiness on your own, or everlasting love with another person?
So, can you feel the fullness of happiness on your own or does everlasting love with someone bring that automatically?
69. Would you rather live life with no inhibitions or no stress?
Sorry! I know you probably don’t have enough time left in the day to figure out your answer on this one, but I had to put this question in here.
70. Would you rather be perfectly confident in who you are, or be perfectly confident that you’re with the right person?
A wise person once said, “I am my own, before I am anyone else’s.” There is a measure of wisdom in that statement.
