My great-nephews Ethan and Kaleb taught me a new game this evening. During this family oriented weekend, in between Dayan’s graduation last night and his celebratory party tomorrow afternoon, I spent time with my mom, sisters and nephews. We capped our fun day together with a board game I had not heard of before.
This interesting and fast paced board game, by Zobmondo!!, is created around the idea of asking the question, Would you rather…followed by two options. An example is Would you rather have two bats with you in the bedroom OR five pigeons in the kitchen? The person taking a turn reads the question silently first, and then writes down which option he or she thinks the majority of the players will choose.
The others players discuss the options and the majority decides. Correctly guessing the most poplular option allows the player to continue rolling the dice and moving around the board.
There are also Challenge Cards. If a player lands on a challenge space on the board, he can accept a challenge, such as singing and dancing for 30 seconds, or holding your tongue, literally, while two other players take their turns, or holding a pose.
The winner of the game is the person who makes it to the highest level and successfully completes a final challenge.
This was a fun, and in our case, rambunctious game. The boys really got into it. Kaleb is only five and although he is a very good reader, we partnered up and made a great team. We all snacked on fruit and hummus with non GMO chips as we played.
Laughter and animated discussions were the norm for our evening as we figured out which crazy option we would rather do. The challenges weren’t always as easy as they appeared to be. Ethan quickly grew tired of holding his tongue, but nailed a 30 second dance routine accompanied by humming.
I highly recommend Would You Rather… It was interesting to see who chose which options and why. And the game provided intriguing glimpses into our own psyches as we pondered impossible choices. Would you rather see upside down OR hear backwards? Hmmmm…
I appreciate the boys suggesting a game night, and Mom, Linda and Debbie joining in. I enjoy trying out new games and playing is such a fun way to learn. Would you rather play in solitude on your phone OR play a clever board game with family?
You know which option we all chose!
