Ways to Play:

Since it’s a question-based game, “this or that” is very similar to the games, “would you rather” or “truth or dare“, that you remember playing as a kid. In the same way you ask would you rather questions or dare questions to your group or your partner, you ask this or that questions to whoever you choose to play with. This game can be whatever you want it to be: funny, deep, serious, etc. It all depends on the questions you decide to ask! Whether you want to set the mood with a list of silly questions or get serious with a list of deep questions, you’re bound to have a good time and spark some interesting conversation. Just know, this won’t be your last time playing this fun and versatile question game!

Swap Off: The most common way to play this questions game is by swapping off each turn on who asks the question and who gives an answer.

Disagreement Switch Off: In this version of the game, before you ask the question, have an idea in your head of what their answer will be. If you get it right, you get to ask another question. If you get it wrong, it becomes the other person‘s turn to ask a question and your turn to answer.
