Good Would You Rather Questions
Would you Rather is one of the best games to get to know your friends in a fun way! If you don’t already know, the point of the game is to compare two very horrible or very amazing situations, and ask players which situation they would prefer. Below we have compiled our top 25 suggestions for good Would You Rather questions. To make sure that you have a nice variety of question ideas, half of these questions compare negative situations and the other half compare positive situations.
1Would you rather constantly smell horrible or constantly smell horrible things?
Why this is a great question: No one wants to be that person who stinks up a room, but it would also be so overwhelming to never be able to escape terrible stenches!
2Would you rather be stuck with 5 foot long finger nails or have no fingers at all?
Why this is a great question: Either way, it would be hard to complete tasks so this is definitely a tough question!
3Would you rather hear people’s thoughts about you or have your thoughts about people heard by them?
Why this is a great question: A lot of people think bad things about people secretly so it would make for a lot of awkward situations if other people could hear all your thoughts. On the other hand, it would be so crushing if you had to hear your boyfriend think about how hot he thinks your best friend is!
4Would you rather pull all your teeth out or chop off the fingers on one of your hands?
Why this is a great question: Both of these options are horrible, but at least you have the option of wearing dentures if you pull all your teeth out!
5Would you rather eat sand paper for a year or only be able to eat broccoli for the rest of your life?
Why this is a great question: The idea of eating sand paper for a year sounds painful and gross, but never being able to eat pizza again might be even worse!
6Would you rather have a head the size of a golf ball or a head the size of a microwave?
Why this is a great question: Imagining either option is comical and slightly terrifying!
7Would you rather be totally ignored or constantly made fun of?
Why this is a great question: Some people say the opposite of love is hate and other people say the opposite of love is neutrality. If you think the opposite of love is neutrality, you will probably prefer to made fun of than live a life unacknowledged.
8Would you rather have no hair at all or be entirely covered in hair?
Why this is a great question: While you can pluck and shave the hair you don’t want, it would be so tiresome to groom constantly so having no hair might seem ideal after all!
9Would you rather be in prison for 10 years or spend 1 full year in solitary confinement?
Why this is a great question: While you can make friends in prison, 10 years is a solid chunk of your life. On the other hand, solitary confinement sounds utterly horrifying!
10Would you rather be in love with someone who didn’t love you back or break the heart of someone who you didn’t love back?
Why this is a great question: If you’ve had your heart broken, you would probably want to be in the position of breaking someone else’s heart because it feels more powerful. However, doing that to someone else is so painful and depending on the situation, the guilt can last longer than your own heartbreak experience did. This is a great question that will probably lead to some interesting debates with your friends if they have had experiences with either of the two options.
11Would you rather snore when you were awake or reveal all your secrets when you were asleep?
Why this is a great question: Both of these options are so embarrassing and cringe inducing to think about!
12Would you rather drink a sewage smoothie or have a person who shadowed your every move for a year?
Why this is a great question: Even though drinking a sewage smoothie is absolutely disgusting, it’s a one-time horror. Having no privacy for a year would be a prolonged exhaustive experience. Answering this question comes down to whether you’d rather be profoundly uncomfortable for a short period of time, or less uncomfortable for a longer period.
13Would you rather be an ant with a human brain or be trapped in a submarine with no human contact for the rest of your life?
Why this is a great question: Both of these options are horrifyingly lonely, but at least if you’re in a submarine you don’t have to worry about being squished by someone’s shoe!
14Would you rather be able to talk to animals or become fluent in all the world’s languages?
Why this is a great question: If you’ve ever had a pet, you’re probably dying to understand what they are thinking. On the other hand, it would be so cool to be able to talk to people from all over the world with no language barrier!
15Would you rather be able to always know the perfect thing to say or look like you never aged beyond 25?
Why this is a great question: This is a hard question, but we think it would feel weird to look like you’re 25 and hang out with your friends when they are 80!
16Would you rather have unlimited money or make a discovery that changed the world and get no payment for it?
Why this is a great question: They say you can’t buy happiness, but you can buy experiences which make you happy. On the other hand, changing the world probably provides a type of satisfaction with yourself which money could never buy.
17Would you rather have perfect teeth or perfect skin?
Why this is a great question: The quality of your teeth and skin are two features that can make or break whether you feel attractive. To help you answer this question, think about which feature you think would be more important for your significant other to have.
18Would you rather look better in photos or look better in person?
Why this is a great question: Looking good in photos is awesome because you will be able to look back on happy memories without being distracted by your critical assessment of your own appearance.

19Would you rather be able to have 5 wishes come true or have one wish come true and give the rest to your friends?
Why this is a great question: If you’re clever, you’ll choose one wish and make the wish be that you and your friends would have unlimited wishes!
20Would you rather be able to predict the future or fix one mistake from your past?
Why this is a great question: This is a great question that will probably lead to some interesting conversations about the mistake that you and your friends would each fix in your own lives.

21Would you rather be able to fly or be invisible when you choose?
Why this is a great question: Technically, both of these options are great because they would let you escape from awkward situations really well!
22Would you rather have one enormous mansion or two small houses in different locations?
Why this is a great question: Depending on how much you like to travel, this question could be difficult to answer!
23Would you rather control the weather or never smell something gross again?
Why this is a great question: If you like the surprise of an epic storm more than you hate the stench of rotten eggs, this question will be easy to answer!
24Would you rather never feel tired again or be the best in the world at something?
Why this is a great question: This question is so hard. Even though it would be awesome to be the best at something, you can’t deny how awesome it would be to never dread your alarm clock again!
25Would you rather have a job you loved that paid little, or have a job you hated that paid a lot?
