In the event you’ve ever been on a long road trip or invited to a slumber party or spent a year as an eighth grader, you’ve likely played “Would You Rather.”
The rules are very simple and universally understood. But on the off-chance you’re visiting us from outer space, here’s how the Would You Rather game functions: You begin by posing a predicament of two equally dreadful-appearing (or occasionally equally enticing options to the other player.
You then smirk as the other player wrestles with this kind of impossible scenario. When they pick what they consider to be the less dreadful of two atrocious situations, it is their turn to come up with a predicament for you.
The game is a regular segment on the Comedy Bang! Bang! podcast. Celeb guests including Ice-T and Bernie Sanders are requested by host Scott Aukerman to choose what they believe to be the finest of two awful scenarios. The questions are nutty and terrible: “Would you rather eat an entire Christmas tree, or have all of your kids have Jim Carrey’s face from The Grinch tattooed on their chests?” is one question Aukerman posed to comic Patton Oswalt.
The beauty of “Would You Rather” is its simplicity. The game requires no advance knowledge and no skills outside a bit of originality. But it is only as fun as the people you play with. There is no denying that the more absurd and occasionally X rated “Would You Rather” gets, the more enjoyable it becomes.
For a little bit of inspiration, here are a few uneasy suggestions compiled from Reddit, either.io, plus our sick, sick imaginations.
