Being a Dominant Would You Rather Player is Not Easy

As any other social game, Would You Rather questions is designed with the single purpose to help you connect with other people in an entertaining way and strengthen your friendship. The would you rather game is not only one of the most popular ones, but also one of the most intriguing gather-around games. Friends who are ready to pose good and mean, funny and difficult would you rather questions is all you need to start the fun. But if having fun is not the only goal on your agenda and you also want to discover something deep, something dark or something embarrassing about your friends, then you need to take your questioning skills and your play seriously.

Find the Right Attitude

To get better at would you rather, the first and most important thing you need is the right attitude. While you may also become a good player without having the right attitude, that would be a much slower and less enjoyable process that can make you believe that this game sucks. Bad players at would you rather have their own mental obstacles, which is the reason why they're not entertained during the game. These players don't take responsibility for their actions, offend others via extremely rude or overly intimate questions, never consider what did they do wrong and blame others for their mistakes instead, and never think outside the box. To fine-tune your attitude, all you need to do is to make sure you have none of these characteristics.

First Read, Then Try Crafting Your Own Questions

Perhaps the most obvious way to improve is to read would you rather questions online. Since would you rather questions have been incredibly popular over the last decade, there are million of them on the Internet on various community sites, forums and blogs, so you can easily find as many examples as you want, read and learn. But the less obvious trick to boost your skills is to craft your own questions. With so many well-crafted questions available, many would not only feel discouraged to write their own questions, but also pointless. Some even believe that behind these question there are experts, which, of course, is not true. You don't need to be a professional-would-you-rather-question-craftsman, because unless writing with a pen or typing on a keyboard, there are no skills required.

Learning Through Writing and Preparing - Highly Efficient

With a vast of would you rather questions available on the Internet, what bothers you now is why would you want to craft new questions when you can steal someone else's. For one thing, it is the only way to make the game personal. You don't know the source of inspiration behind those questions online. And if you ask me, being personal is the essence of the very game. As you start crafting your own questions, you learn and get better. An extra bonus. When finished, you can share your questions as inspiration to all the rookies around the world.

Prepare a List Beforehand

Last, but incredibly useful tip is to prepare a list of would you rather questions before you start the game. When you start posing some difficult questions, you'll appear as a confident and skillful player about to tear their friends' hidden truths apart. But appearance is not everything you'll have; you'll get results too. By analyzing your friends beforehand and considering what to ask them, you're more likely to set a goal for yourself and work towards achieving it. The more questions you craft, the more confident you become. And the more confident you become, the higher the chances of getting the best out of would you rather.

These tips are guaranteed to take your would you rather game to infinity and beyond!
