What-If Questions: The List for the Party Game

Sometimes you need a few ideas or topics to really get a social conversation going. A game such as "Who would rather ...", "I've never ..." or "What if ..." can help. Are you looking for what-if-questions for your party? We have put together an exciting list of the question and answer game for you and your friends.

The question and answer game

"What if ...?" How often have we not all come up with the most absurd thoughts and hypothetical questions about what would happen if a certain situation occurred? Precisely because so many scenarios exceed our imagination or we are just so firmly convinced that it will never happen, the question of “What if ...?” Is so appealing - especially in a sociable group.

But not only what-if-questions about the seemingly impossible, but especially those that are not that far removed from reality can be exciting. They not only get your imagination going, but also tell you more about your counterpart, for example. The question and answer game is also a casual opportunity to get to know each other better in a cozy atmosphere than perhaps already. You will be amazed what you can learn about the character traits of your friends and acquaintances!

The rules of the game:

  • The question and answer session can start with just 2 players.
  • A player begins and asks a teammate of his choice a question.
  • The other player answers to ask another player a new question.
  • The what-if questions can, but do not have to be asked in turn.

Note: Our what-if questions are suggestions. If you find one or the other too spicy or inappropriate given the personal situation of another player, leave them out and choose a different one. You are also not immune from faux pas - for example, if a teammate who is still rather strange to you may already have had a similar experience to the one in your question. So even if it's actually just a game, always choose your questions carefully!

Simplified what-if game

A simplified variant of the question and answer game requires the respondent to answer the what-if question asked him only with “I would do it” or “I would not do it”. He doesn't have to describe what exactly he would do in this case. You can of course still ask what reasons he has for his chosen answer.
