This party game is perfect for use in the classroom, at a seminar or workshop, or any gathering of adults. It's easy and lots of fun. Would you rather find true love or win the lottery? Would you rather be bald or completely hairy? Would you rather tell your best friend a lie or your parents the truth?

We'll explain how to play the game, and give you lots of ideas to get started.

Ideal Size

Any size works.

Use For

Introductions in the classroom or at a meeting.

Time Needed

30-60 minutes, depending on the size of the group.

Materials Needed



Give the group a minute to think of a Would You Rather… question. Give some examples. Introduce yourself and ask the first person your question. They give their name and ask the next person their question. And so on.

Depending on the purpose of your class or meeting, ask participants to come up with a meaningful or thought-provoking question. If you use this game as an energizer, encourage people to just be silly.


No debriefing is necessary unless you’ve asked the group to come up with questions related to your topic. If so, some of the choices probably inspired some remarkable responses. Choose a few to discuss further or to use as a lead-in to your first lecture or activity.

Would You Rather...Ideas (Lots of them!)
