Ideas for Playing Would You Rather

Would You Rather Play ‘Would You Rather’ At Your Office Christmas Party Or Try To Guess Your Best Friend’s Answers?!

These questions are ideal conversation starters amongst friends.  They certainly don’t need any game formality to be enjoyed.

However if you’d like to make these Christmas Would You Rathers into a game, here are few ideas:

  • Pop the questions up on a screen or board and do a poll for each to find the most popular answer.
  • Have a handful of people complete the list in advance and the rest of the group has to try and guess whose answers they are looking at.
  • Try and guess the answers of your other half, Mr & Mrs – game style.
  • Create a fun debate – give two people 60 seconds each to speak in favour of their side of the would you rather conundrum.

We’ve created two free printable pdfs for you to use if you’d like to print out a set of questions. Scroll down to grab your copies.

And we’ve also designed a number of Christmas Would You Rather images that you are most welcome to copy and paste to your social media of choice to ask your friends what they would choose.  

However you decide to use the questions, have fun!
