This or that questions get asked during a verbal game played between two people or in a small group. The game starts by saying, "Pick one." And then gets followed by the "this or that" questions.

How to Play "This or That" Game

This is an easy game to play with friends or family. One player starts by saying, "Pick one." And the other player gets prompted to answer with either the first or the second option. The game can be played to learn more about each other. Or the game can use a point scoring system.

An example round is the following. The first player asks, "Winter or summer?" And the second player must pick one. Then the next question is asked.

Purpose of the game

"This or that" is commonly played between two people who would like to get to know each other. These questions to get to know each other can spark conversation. And playing this game is a great way to get to know someone. Or a great way to get to know your friends better. Game players who decide to play "this or that" are commonly seeking conversation starters. Similar games are "would you rather." Make sure to answer honestly.

Using a point system

To use a point system, have one player try to guess the other player's answers. And if the responding player is correct about their guess, they earn a point. Earn points up to twenty-one. Or stop the game once all the players have answered all the questions below.

Rules of the game

There are no rules to this game. The main rule of the game is to ensure that all players answer quickly. This game can get played in a round-table format. The round-table format means each player takes turns answering the questions quickly. Or can get played by answering all questions in total. And then counting how many players answered the questions correctly.

Remember, if using a point system, the answers must be about another player. This helps two or more people learn more about each other.

Where to play the game

Play this game on a first date. Or during Thanksgiving or Christmas. Or when meeting a new friend and looking for something to do. Many players choose to start this game when feeling "bored" and needing to start a conversation.
