Would You Rather Online

Here is our guide to playing Would You Rather online.

We put this guide together after gaining years of experience facilitating get to know you games for remote teams.

Playing Would You Rather virtually with teams involves posing hypothetical scenarios and having participants choose between two options. This game fosters discussion and camaraderie among team members. Engaging in this activity encourages creativity, critical thinking, and empathy within the team. Members share their perspectives and learn more about each other’s preferences and values. Would You Rather is a lighthearted and impactful way to strengthen bonds and promote teamwork among remote colleagues.

Ideal group size:

4 to 12 players per team

Activity duration:

20 to 45 minutes



What you’ll need:

  • Video conferencing platform (e.g., Zoom, Microsoft Teams)
  • Would You Rather question prompts
  • Virtual whiteboard or shared document for recording responses

How to play:

Step 1: Choose a Platform

First, select a virtual platform that allows for easy communication and sharing of Would You Rather scenarios. Platforms like Zoom, Microsoft Teams, or Slack can work well for this purpose.

Step 2: Set Up the Session

Next, schedule a time for the game session and invite participants. The team should have the necessary access and instructions to join the virtual meeting.

Step 3: Explain the Rules

You can begin the session by explaining the rules of Would You Rather to all participants. Players will get two options and must choose one. Be sure to encourage honesty and creativity in responses.

Step 4: Present Scenarios

As the facilitator, prepare a list of Would You Rather scenarios ahead of time or use an online generator. You can share your screen or type the scenarios into the chat for participants to read.

Step 5: Encourage Discussion

After presenting each scenario, encourage participants to discuss their choices. This step can spark interesting conversations and help team members get to know each other better.

Step 6: Rotate Roles

To keep the game engaging, rotate the role of presenting scenarios among participants. This process allows players to participate actively and share their own Would You Rather dilemmas.

Step 7: Time Management

To maintain momentum and prevent the game from dragging on, keep discussion moving at a steady pace.

Step 8: Foster Inclusivity

It is important to ensure that the whole team has an opportunity to share their thoughts and opinions during the game. You can encourage quieter team members to participate by asking for their input directly.
