While this pandemic has taken boredom to the next level, there are various occasions in life when we are bored out of our minds and need something to pass the time with. Well, one of the best ways to do so is playing the game of ‘This or that’ questions. The best part about this game is that it can be played among all age groups from little kids to grown-ups, and among all kinds of peer groups as well, be it family, relatives, friends, your partner, or even your colleagues.
These questions serve as catalysts for a lot of fun and great conversations and also help you to know some interesting titbits about the people you are playing this game with. The best part is that you have to choose an option, even if you are unsure, or even if you like both of them equally. All you require for this game is a couple of people who are sporting enough to play this game.
How Do You Play This Game?
The most common person to play this game with is your partner. Both of you ask each other questions one by one and you both have to answer them, no matter what the options are. You will be surprised to know how much you may or may not know about your partner even if you guys go back a very long time. And if it is a new relationship, it is a brilliant and fun game to know what your partner likes and dislikes.
Another way to play this game is when you are with a lot of your friends. One question is asked and you have to choose an option. The other players will then guess which option have you chosen and whoever gets it right will get a point. Similarly, everyone else will pick one too. Therefore, for each question there will be multiple points for grabs. Naturally, the person who has the maximum number of points at the end of the game wins.
While you generally just need a group of players to play with, a list of curated questions always helps to have in your hand. This way the game can take place quicker because people don’t have to think about the questions. You can add all kinds of twists and turns to this game, even more options if you want to. The fact is that this game remains fun nonetheless.

Never reply with either both or none: This isn’t in the spirit of the game and besides, it is just a game. Be brave and even if you like or dislike both the options just choose one.
Do not use this to dig into someone: Do not use these questions to make someone uncomfortable, dig into their past, or pick bones with them. Keep the atmosphere fun and light.
Personalize the questions and be on your toes: While we have made it pretty clear that you can make a lot of other questions with the same variables we have used, you should be able to judge what will be an easy choice for the person in front of you. That is the time you should be improvising and change the options to make the decision tougher and therefore the game fun.
