Great Meeting Ice Breaker – “Would you rather…?”

We purchased the board game “Would you rather…?” a while ago and love the concept so much that we often make up our own questions randomly. We’re sometimes a corny family.

Anyway, I recently co-hosted a 2-day face-to-face planning session with people who are in different organizations, but work in a common space. One of the primary objectives of the planning session was to form critical business relationships. During the session introductions, we had each person introduce themselves then answer a “Would you rather…?” question. Examples:

Would you rather be drowned or burned to death?

Would you rather fight Mike Tyson or talk like him?

Would you rather be eaten to death by ants or or killed by a lion?

Would you rather go on a date with bad breath or body odor?


It proved to be a fun way to lighten the mood and get to know a little more about one another.

    And by “many” you mean “every single one.”

    I removed the link to the questions online because the questions posted at the moment are horribly inappropriate…I didn’t realize anyone can post questions on the site. The boardgame cards are far more office/family friendly.
