How to Play This or That Questions

Question mark heap on table concept for confusion

This or That Question games make for a fun activity to play at a big party, a small gathering, or an intimate game for two. It does not matter whether there are two players or a large group participating. The game has countless variations, and you can pick which topic is best suited for the occasion:

Basic This or That Questions

The basic variation, and simplest way to play This or That Questions, is with two players. This game will allow players to get to know each other better. The players take turns asking questions and answering. As you go through the questions and answers of a food topic, for example, you’ll get to know a person’s likes and dislikes, preferences on foods and ingredients, and more. This game is great for newfound friends or new couples.

Timed Questions

In this variation of the game, each person is given a set time (usually 3-5 seconds) to answer. If the person cannot answer within the time limit, that person is out of the game.

Team Play

A This or That Questions game can be played by teams. There are countless question categories, and the game can be played during special events, office icebreaker question games, and family gatherings. The group should be able to agree one answer for each question given to them. This can be tricky because not all people have the same preferences!

Predictive This or That Questions

A player should predict which choice the other person selected. If the player gets it right, a point is given. This can be played together by players on the same team or different teams. If the players on the same team are playing, a point is given to the team if A got the same answer as B. If the players are from the opposing team, the point is given to A if he got the same answer as B, but if A answered incorrectly, the point is awarded to B.
