How to Play Hard “Would You Rather”

Getting ready to play hard “Would You Rather”? It’s simple! Gather a group of friends or family members and decide which of you goes first, and in what order.

The first person thinks of two options, both equally challenging, and asks the rest of the group which they would rather choose.

For example, “Would you rather lose all your memories or never be able to make new ones?”

The catch? You have to pick one option - no “neither” or “both” allowed! Once everyone has made their choice, the next person takes a turn and comes up with their own hard “Would You Rather” question.

The game continues until everyone has had a chance to ask a question or until you run out of questions. The goal is to think carefully about your decision and justify it, leading to some interesting debates and discussions among players.

Hard “Would You Rather” Questions

Need challenging questions for your next game night? This list of hard “Would You Rather” questions is designed to push you to your decision-making limits.

1. Would you rather be with someone you love or with someone who loves you?

Sometimes being in love with someone who doesn’t love you back causes more pain than it should. Then again, to be loved by someone who you don’t love can also be problematic. Which life would you rather have?

2. Would you rather be the first to die or the last?

The underlying question here is: Would you rather die feeling lonely or feel like you weren’t done living?

3. Would you rather be a child and never grow up or instantly be an adult and never age?

Children always say that they “can’t wait to grow up,” but little do they know that all adults want is to be a kid again. There are pros and cons to both choices. Discuss!

4. Would you rather lose all the money that you worked for or lose all your memories?

What’s the point of having all the money in the world if you can’t remember the things you love, right? Ah, the debate to choose love and money. Always a hard decision.

5. Would you rather know the date of when you’ll die or the cause of it?

If you know the cause of your death, you might end up living out of fear, whereas if you know the date, you might get that YOLO mindset and end up being careless. Either way, there are pros and cons to everything.

6. Would you rather work in your dream job but be paid only minimum wage or at a job you hate but pays well?

Happiness or Wealth? One of life’s most challenging questions.

7. Would you rather have a one-night stand and then accidentally get pregnant or hear the words “I have an STD” the morning after?

Both options are something no one wants to hear – ever. But if you had to, which would you rather experience?

8. Would you rather always bite your tongue whenever you eat something or always stub your toe on corners?

So much pain in one sentence 😫 We can’t even choose ourselves!

9. Would you rather find your one true love or win the lottery?

Would it be worth it to have all that money if you can’t share it with someone? Hmm? 🤔

10. Would you rather always tell the truth or always tell a lie?

We all know that telling a lie is sometimes necessary. But at the same time, telling the truth is always better.
