One of the all-time best games to play with any youth group is “Would You Rather?” and we have a massive list of questions to keep the game interesting and fun! If you aren’t sure by what we mean, “Would You Rather?” is a simple game that requires no preparation or equipment, only questions that forces each person to pick between two options. A simple example would be to ask your group, “Would you rather have cake or cookies?” and have everyone divide into two camps, and perhaps even debate the options! But we’re going to give you lots and lots of interesting and fun question ideas in this list.
Bookmark this page if you play “Would You Rather?” often! It’s a great game for any youth leader to know and be ready to play as an ice breaker, a quick game for small group or Sunday School lessons, or on mission trips and retreats.
