In the event you’ve ever been on an extended road trip or invited to a slumber party or spent a year as an eighth grader, you’ve probably played “Would You Rather.”
The rules are incredibly simple and universally understood. But on the off-chance you are visiting us from outer space, here’s how the “Would You Rather” game works: You begin by presenting a predicament of two equally horrid-looking (or occasionally equally enticing alternatives to the other player.
You then smirk as the other player wrestles with this kind of impossible scenario. As soon as they decide the things that they consider to be the less terrible of two atrocious scenarios, it’s their turn to come up with a predicament for you.
The game is a regular segment on the Comedy Bang! Bang! podcast. Star guests including Ice-T and Bernie Sanders are asked by host Scott Aukerman to pick the things that they believe to be the best of two awful scenarios.
The beauty of “Would You Rather” is its simplicity. The game needs no advance knowledge and no skills outside a bit of imagination. But it’s only as fun as the folks you play with. There’s no denying that the more absurd and sometimes X rated “Would You Rather” gets, the more interesting it becomes.
For a little inspiration, below are some uneasy suggestions compiled from Reddit, either.io, plus our sick, sick imaginations.
