A couple laughing together as they answer this or that questions for couples

Games can teach you more than if the person you’re playing with has the kind of competitive streak that sees them upending the Monopoly board when they land on Boardwalk a few too many times. They can also be repositories of interesting information – especially when they involve questions.

This or that questions is such a game.

This or that questions work by giving two choices. You must answer with one of the choices, even if both are equally revolting to you, or conversely, equally appealing.

This or that questions are very similar to would you rather questions. The key difference is this or that questions are shorter so you can get a rapid pace going with them.

This or that questions also run a huge range of types or topics. Here you will find general this or that questions aimed at adults, funny this or that questions, and this or that questions for couples.

Ways to play This or that questions

There are several ways to play This or that questions. These include:

  1. creating a how well do you know me questions scenario. Have the list of questions in advance, and go through writing down what you think the other person will answer. This s an especially good way to play this or that questions for couples. You can even assign points.
  2. taking turns to ask the questions as an icebreaker. If you were playing these in a group date or team, it could then be a challenge to meet up with people who shared a percentage of your preferences.
  3. asking “why” after each one for a detailed breakdown of their reasons – perfect if you want to take your time with these this or that questions.
