How Do You Play Would You Rather?

There are a couple of options to play a Thanksgiving Would You Rather. However, which one you choose will depend on a couple of factors like party size and where you’re wanting to play it.

Would You Rather: 3 Different Options

The options are kind of limitless, so don’t feel boxed in. These are simply some great recommendations to help get you started!

Single Person Answers

A great option to keep the conversation going is to ask Thanksgiving Would You Rather questions at the diner table.

  • Ask one person at a time.
  • Either randomly or clockwise around the table.
  • Once a person answers, you could ask them to explain why they chose their answer.

Sometimes the real fun is the back-and-forth banter that happens when you discuss an odd theoretical situation.

Everyone Gets Answers

Going around in a circle and having everyone answer is the more traditional way to play Thanksgiving Would You Rather.

It’s fun to have all the prompts on strips of paper and just have each person take a turn picking from a bucket, basket, or bowl. They read the prompt out loud and then they start by answering the question themselves.

Then every other person will answer the prompt going around the room clockwise. It’s great to encourage chatting in between. It’s definitely not a strict answer and move-on kind of game. We want discussion, laughter, and even a few rabbit trails!

Two Person Challenge

In this version, you will split everyone into pairs. And in the end, it kind of becomes a compatibility game.

  • Ask each team a question and then count to three. Then each opponent will say their answers out loud.
  • Matching answers earns 1 point.
  • Keep asking questions until their answers don’t match.
  • When the team’s answers don’t match you’ll move on to the next team.
  • The team with the most points wins!

Majority Wins

Everyone gets a piece of paper and a pen before you start.

  • Ask the question aloud to the whole room and everyone writes their answers down.
  • On the count of three everyone reveals their answers.
  • The majority with the same answer wins a point.
  • Repeat this process for all the questions.
  • The player with the most points wins.

An Interactive Version

This is a great version if you have a large amount of younger kids in attendance that you want to participate in the games.

There is a popular Would You Rather Thanksgiving Edition trend on TikTok where the entire family can potentially participate. You don’t necessarily have to use TikTok to do this version, either. Simply put on some fun music and split the room in half.

  • The answers are split into the left and right sides of the room.
  • When the question is prompted you will head to whichever direction is your preferred answer.

The most fun part of this challenge is the background music. So those participating or not participating can still be having fun being goofy or dancing. And there is definitely no age limit. The more diversity in age the more fun it gets!
