Alright, I know, every single other game concept of mine has died out slowly and painfully. But I’ve studied the formula of the longest running games on this forum… and shall now proceed to copy it with minor changes.

The rules are simple: someone asks a “would you rather?” question. The next person answers it and asks another one. You can explain your answer if you want, but it’s not required. Questions can have as much or as little context as is necessary (the latter is more likely). And the starting question:

You find an old box in your attic and decide to open it. Which would you rather find inside:

100 live cockroaches

or

1 person

Query: Is that person going to wake up deranged, grab my leg and give me some sort of curse of some-kind or are they just gonna lie there?

I don’t know that.

Person. Easy.

Would you rather fight 100 geese or 10 dogs?

100 geese. I'm more willing to fight a snake bird than I am a dog.

Would you rather uncontrollably travel to a random point in space or time once every year?

Either one could easily get you dead 😕 I guess the time one seems safer--and probably more interesting, too.

Would you rather spend a week caring for 100 geese or 10 dogs?

100 geese! It'll be like Untitled Goose Game and I can be bullied 100 times over.

Would you rather go into public dressed as a clown, or dressed as a baby?

Dressed like a clown

... Wait.... no...

Would you rather have a musical written about your life (you do not get to direct) or have your own theme song (it plays every time you enter a room and you can't turn it off)

A musical 😃 I love musicals

Would you rather eat a salad of nothing but lettuce or a salad of nothing but croutons?

Croutons, croutons. Crunchy friends in a liquid broth.

Would you rather by chase by a rhinocerous, a hippopotamus or a grizzly bear?

Probably a grizzly bear. I think my 12 gauge shotgun would be effective against a bear. A hippo would demolish me, a rhino would also stomp me... But a bear -although i would probably die- I'd still stand a chance.

Would you rather have a 12 shotty or a semi automatic rifle in the zombie apocalypse? You would have 100 rounds of each at the start.

I don't even know -- 12 shotty sounds funny so I'll choose that

Would you rather go skiing or surfing?

Surfing. I'd rather drown than freeze to death.

Given that you could get a superpower (in this hypothetical situation) would you rather be able to teleport yourself and anything you want to any location or hypothetical reality or the ability to fly up to the speed of light without crashing into anything and without temporal dilation?

Teleportation. I regularly think about this, and have come to the conclusion that instantaneous displacement of matter is basically the same thing as light-travel, except I can't be held in any particular form of imprisonment.

Would you rather be forced to live in a random ancient civilization or a random futuristic city?

Random futuristic city for sure. With my disability, I'd probably be dead soon in most ancient civs. Also, fLyInG cArS

No, I have younger.
5, 11, and 19 years younger than me.

@ flying cars:
there will never be flying cars.
If they are flying, they are no longer cars.

What's your "would you rather?" question?
(this is not the TUBM thread, after all)


or I can just continue the game:

Given that flying cars are such popular future trope:
Would you rather:
  • live in a futuristic reality but there will never be flying cars
  • live in current reality but with flying cars, but there will never be any more progress
?

Oh gosh :haunted: I am embarrassed

I'm not really into flying cars that much, so I'll choose the first one.

Would you rather become a very pampered pet platypus or a feral/wild cat?

To be fair, I pretty much entirely stole this concept from that thread

I'd like to be perry the platypus, yes, that is a good idea

Would you rather live on the surface of the sun or the bottom of the ocean (provided you will have the technology to survive in either climate)?

Bottom of the ocean. If I have the technology to survive then perhaps I can use it as a base to develop a technique to remove the plastic from the ocean or something. If I was stuck on the sun I wouldn't be able to ever interact with Earth in a meaningful way.

Would you rather be hated by everyone but their lives are all improved in a random way or loved by everyone but their lives are all made worse in a random way?
