▶ This or That asks players to choose between two options, even if they do not like either of them.
▶ The game works well as an icebreaker or party game as one can ask as few or as many questions as desired.
▶ This or That works for any group size. Use This or That questions in school, at camp, in the car, or anytime you want a quick and easy game that needs no special equipment or advance preparation.
There are two options for play:
🔸 Taking Turns
Have the group sit in a circle on the floor and take turns asking their neighbor a This or That question. Players must answer within 5 seconds or they are out. You can either pass out pre-prepared slips of papers with questions or have someone call out the questions.
🔸 Team Playing of This or That
For a very large group, consider dividing the group into pairs or teams of three or four players. All members of the group must agree on the option they choose within ten seconds. If the team cannot agree, they lose a turn. Award one point for each answer. After a set number of questions, the team with the most points wins. If there is a tie, continue until the tie is broken.
Encourage players to think for a second before answering. If you wish, add another level of fun by asking why players answer the way they do – particularly fun with the couple This and That questions!
