Would You Rather?

One of the little games that we play at work to keep from going crazy on tediously slow or crazy-busy days is to play "Would You Rather?" It's usually played with two people (usually the deli people) but it can be played with whoever is within hearing distance - or, if we're feeling particularly ambitious, we play it over the radio headsets. Generally, a player poses a "rock and a hard place" type question ("Would you rather never be alone for a year, or stranded on a deserted island for one year?" or "Would you rather hear your favorite song over and over, or never hear the same song twice?") and the other players must choose (half the fun is then discussing your choices and the rationale behind them). If someone is unable to choose, a point gets chalked up to the questioner. :)

Imagine my excitement when I opened one of my magazines and found this game in board-game version! I'm so tempted to buy a version for the store (although by Christmastime I'll only have a few weeks left at work).

Another WYR-type game gets played on one of my fav blogs, real style real people - except Christina calls it "Choose or Die!" Check it out for some fun!

And if anyone wants to know what to get me for Christmas - well, would you rather... :)
