While some may say that would you rather questions is a tedious game for bored students, I say it is an incredibly fun and bonding game for everyone from 13 to 99, but only when the right questions are asked. Asking the right questions can make or break your chances for winning the game of would you rathers. So if you are one of those who thought that this awesome social game is a silly exchange of random would you rather questions, stay tuned and I'll tell you why you're wrong.
A deep, trustworthy conversation with a person is the key to successfully setting a foundation for a friendship, a romantic or a business relationship. In that initial stage of a relationship, what matters most is asking the right questions. Whether you're meeting the love of your life or you're playing the would you rather game, it's all about the questions you pose. If you were wondering how can you turn the game into your advantage, start by carefully choosing questions.
Another important note on this game is to set an ultimate goal for yourself. Many would start off the game without any particular expectations or goals and will probably end it without achieving anything more than a good laugh. To make the game more dynamic for yourself and for the others, set yourself a goal and pose questions to your friends that are heavily grounded in your game plan. Your goal can be something like: Reveal the darkest secret of (your friend's name). Also, work on your strategy. You don't want to be like the others asking easy would you rathers in no particular order.
The crucial part of following your strategy and achieving your ultimate goal is asking the right questions. Yeah, I know it's my 100th time to emphasis the importance of right questions, but that's really the essence of the game. Instead of simple would you rather questions, pose some tricky, difficult and revealing questions that involve both the head and the heart. This way, you can not only get more information, but also get a chance to craft a follow-up question for your next turn.
If you want to get honest answers by your friends, you should be a good listener too. When it's their turn to answer, listen to them carefully. Interrupting them will tell them that you don't respect them, don't value their answer and give them a feeling that you're trying to make fun of them. Ask your question, then let your opponent have their time to choose what would they rather do. Of course, if they're taking too long to answer or starting to stray off topic, politely ask them to get back to playing the game.
Would you rather is an extremely interesting game that can turn your ordinary Saturday night with the guys or the gals into extraordinary. Besides its potential to break the ice when getting to know each other, this game is also known to strengthen your current relationships and friendships in the most unusual ways you would've never imagined. And now when you know how to be a dominant player, what are you waiting for? Prepare your questions and invite them over.
