Zobmondo!!’s Would You Rather Board Game Instructions:

Roll the dice and move your player piece. The space that you land on has a color that corresponds to a statement on the cards.

Read out the statement and guess the majority of the group’s preference. If you guess it right, you can move 3 steps forward. Otherwise, you move 1 step. This game is fast-paced so there’s definitely a high chance that you’ll be playing a couple of rounds 😅

Crazier Dilemmas Would You Rather Board Game

You can find this version by clicking here and it will take you to a link on Amazon.com

This is a version by Spin Master Games. You can choose to play individually or in teams.

Spin Master Game’s Would You Rather Board Game Instructions:

Everyone gets both an “A” and “B” voting card. With the spinner, it tells the players which category on the card they’ll be reading from. Yes, all cards have different categories which contain different sets of questions each.

(Don’t worry, if you’re lucky, you might land on the “free pick” and get to choose which category!)

Each Would You Rather dilemma has an “A” and “B” option. Players shouldn’t share which option they choose. You have to place your chosen option on the middle of the board, cards facing down. Once everyone has placed their card down, each player will then guess which option they think the person whose turn it is had chosen.

If 1 or more person guesses correctly, then the player whose turn it is moves up 1 space. Otherwise, they can move up 3 spaces if no one guesses. Winning this game is simple, the first person to reach the Finish space wins!

If more than one more person reaches the Finish space at the same time somehow, everyone wins or they can play another round.

This set comes with the following:

  • 160 Question Cards
  • 1 Dilemma Dial
  • 1 Game board
  • 1 Card Holder
  • 6 Player Pieces
  • 1 Instruction pamphlet

DIY Would You Rather Game Board

No budget to buy a fancy game board? 💸 No worries! You can make your own Would You Rather board game at home! You can simply use Post-Its on a large poster paper or on the table!

With Post-Its, you’ll be writing down Would You Rather statements and placing them down while arranging them to make it look more like a game board.

Once everything’s set up, all you’ll need next is to just grab a dice and start playing! A player will throw a dice and move his piece or figurine accordingly. The player must then answer the statement on the Post-It that they landed on. If things seem weird, you can get the player to also explain why they chose that statement!

The winner is determined by being the first to reach the last Post-It!

Fun games like Would You Rather have always been a great way to strengthen the bond between players. With this method, it’ll be a great help to families too! You can prompt the kids to be the ones to write their own questions on the Post-It then have them design the board to make it look more legitimate. You can get as creative as you want!

Priced at $11.99, similar to the board game, this version would also have everyone get into a debate and discussion.

To play, everyone must be dealt a number of cards. With the cards facing down, a player gets to flip their question card on their turn. After reading the Would You Rather question, give the other players a few seconds to decide on which statement they prefer.

Then the player whose turn it is, needs to guess the majority of the group’s preference. This game plays through points. If you succeed in guessing the majority of the preference, you get a point! The player with the most points after everyone’s finished with their cards on hand, is the winner!

Never Have I Ever

This is a game that is similar to Would You Rather in the sense that it’s a great party game and you get to know the people you’re playing with on another level.

How to Play Never Have I Ever:

Gather all players around. Never Have I Ever is a point-system type of game. Hold up all 10 of your fingers. Each time a player says a statement that you’ve done, you put one finger down. The statement a player gives should be something they themselves have never done.

The first one to put all their fingers down is the loser.

If you want to make things more interesting, you can incorporate alcohol 🍻 Loser does a shot. You can even use just 5 of your fingers to make the round go faster, or you can have a person take a shot simply when they’ve done a statement.

Samples of Never Have I Ever Questions

To give you an idea on what are the kinds of statements you’d hear at a Never Have I Ever game, here are some suggestions. Don’t forget that if it’s your turn, the statement should be something that you have never done before. The game is to see who has the most life experiences.

  • Never Have I Ever blamed alcohol for something I said.
  • Never Have I Ever thrown up at work or school.

Most Likely To is also one of those go-to party games that’s sure to give everyone a good and memorable time. The concept of this game is for the group to decide who they think is “Most Likely To” do the statement that is given out by the player whose turn it is.

How to Play Most Likely To:
