"Would You Rather" is both a fun game and one of the most timeless traditions for sleepovers, long car rides, and boring summer afternoons, and now you can while away the hours with this list of the best would you rather questions. No longer will you feel the need to think up dopey scenarios like, “Would you rather eat a bug or be a bug?” With this list on your side, you’ll rule the backseat of your parents' car with an iron fist. Get your problem solving glasses on and check out this list of good would you rather questions.

If you’ve never played would you rather before (then what planet are you from?), don't worry - it's easy. First, ask a question with two impossible to answer scenarios attached, and then watch your friends and family begin to question everything they thought was real. It’s genuinely amazing to see someone you’ve known all your life fall into an existential quagmire over the most inconsequential of things, thanks to some well-crafted would you rathers. But be warned, you too will face the same pit of despair when the would you rather tables are turned on you. If you think you can handle that kind of pressure, then check out this list of the best would you rather scenarios and get ready to answer some tough questions.

Feel free to add your favorite would you rather scenario to our already mighty list, including both dirty would you rather questions and clean, family-friendly ones. And for funsies, see how many of the scenarios you can answer in the comments before going completely insane.
