Either Or Questions: Fun & Exciting Game for Dates And Partys


Icon Spielen © Abenteuer Freundschaft


Question games are perfect for quickly getting a first impression of others. The either or questions are all you need for this simple and fun game. Here there are 100 entertaining either or questions for friends, couples and quite interesting dates!

And what do you do professionally? … Oh and how do you know XY? … Nice weather today, should remain so for the time being, I’ve heard. … Does your cocktail taste good? …….

Small talk is pretty boring, isn’t it?

Whether at a party, a family gathering, or even on a date: the usual standard questions and topics of conversation can quickly become boring. And yet they get asked over and over again, even I plead guilty!

It’s just something you do. After all, it would be pretty rude to just shut up and ask right away, “Hey, we don’t know each other, but tell me, what’s the meaning of life for you?” You can’t. Can’t it?

It can, if it’s done in the context of a fun get-to-know-you game or question-and-answer game! You can learn a lot not only about strangers to whom you have just been introduced. With so some question game one becomes acquainted with also friends of many years only correctly.

Anyone who has ever played Truth or Dare or Never have I ever in a buzzed round knows what I’m talking about… ?

Fun and Exciting Either-Or Questions

Question games, however, can also quickly become embarrassing to one or the other. Especially if you’re in a round of people you don’t know that well and where you don’t want to embarrass anyone. In this case, a question game is better, where no one has to reveal their most intimate secrets, but which still provides for laughs and good conversation.

The either or questions game is ideal for this, especially since it is very simple and can be easily varied.

A questioner asks someone in the round an either-or question, such as “Black or white?” and the person must answer without hesitation. Then she/he gets to ask someone else a question.

Different Ways to Play the Question Game

  • You always ask the question first to the player to the left of you, then in the second round to the player to the left of you, and so on, until every player has asked every other player a question
  • All players in the round must answer the question in order
  • All players must write the answer on a slip of paper and place it in the center. Then everyone has to guess how many times which answer was given. Who is right gets a small reward (candy, liquor, etc.)
  • Before asking the question, the questioner writes on a piece of paper the answer he thinks the answerer will give. If he was right, both get a point credited. But you have to be honest.
  • You should clarify beforehand whether the answers “both” or “neither” are allowed. Hint: it’s funnier if you don’t ?
  • In principle, it is allowed to ask why someone gave that answer. But no one is forced to justify it.
