Would you rather? HQ took a trip to the famous Central Park to play a game of “Would you rather…?” Would you rather have drinks with Bill Cosby or Aziz Ansari? Who would win in a fight, Chris Christie or President Obama? Wonder Woman or Oprah? Sean Connery or Clint Eastwood? The game gets even deeper from there…

“Would you rather” is a conversation or party game that poses a dilemma in the form of a question beginning with “would you rather”. The dilemma can be between two supposedly good options, such as, “Would you rather have the power of flight or the power of invisibility?”, or it can be between two supposedly bad options, as in, “Would you rather sleep with your best friend’s lover or your lover’s best friend?” The players, sometimes including the questioner, then must choose their answers. Answering “neither” or “both” is against the rules. This leads the players to debate their rationales. In EXTREME cases, the option “suicide” can be used and that player is then out of the game.

In December 2011, BBC America premiered a television show based on the game, titled Would You Rather…? with Graham Norton.[1]
