Whether you are with friends a road-trip, playing golf or enjoying a leisurely afternoon of drinks by the pool, a good old fashioned game of ‘Would you rather?’ is always a good option for some fun banter.

You can apply this game to just about any element of life, presenting two options with you having to choose one. You can naturally keep the content light, or make it very uncomfortable by presenting two nightmare situations. The potential is endless, but to get you going here are ten subjects to get the banter flowing.

1: Would you rather be Batman or James Bond?

Opening thought: Batman is a super hero, but he has no super powers, just super gadgets, He is very similar to James Bond then, only Bond gets to travel which opens up the dating pool…

2: Would you rather be the Hoff in Knight Rider or Baywatch?

Opening thought:The classic 80s vs 90s debate, but with big hair and skinny legs. Michael Knight was a dark and stormy character, whereas Mitch Buchanan was the conventional super dad character. One had a cool car, the other worked with and around hot girls in swimwear…

3: Would you rather be a rockstar or a top professional golfer?

Opening thought: The rockstar gets to travel the world, make lots of cash, and hook up with lots of girls while doing something that they love. A top professional golfer does the exact same thing, only in a less famous sense, but they do get to live this life for longer…

4: Would you rather film a sex tape with Kim Kardashian or Taylor Swift in the name of becoming famous?

Opening thought: Kim has the experience and you know her mom will know how to distribute it. Taylor is a newcomer though, so more people may want to see that video over another Kardashian one…

5: Would you rather have the ability to become invisible or ability to fly like superman?

Opening thought: Everyone wants to be able to fly, but you would draw a lot of attention to yourself. Being able to become invisible opens up a whole world of opportunities…

6: Would it be better to travel back in time, or forward?

Opening thought: Do you want to see history in action, or see where this world will one day be? It’s having an idea of what lies ahead, or running the risk encountering the absolute unknown…

7: Would you rather be proficient in all forms of martial art, or fluent in any spoken language?

Opening thought: The confidence of knowing you can kick pretty much anyones ass is cool, but the ability to communicate can open up endless doors and opportunities.

8: Would you rather have a photographic memory or the ability to make anyone laugh?

Opening thought:Charm is a real social superpower, but when nothing escapes your mind you can also do great things. Knowledge is power, but relationships are also considered everything…

9: Would you rather have R1 million today, or R5 million in three years time?

Opening thought: It’s a case of instant gratification over a more ‘prudent’ play. You may argue that you can’t guarantee you will be alive in three years time, but when you are, 5 sure beats 1…

10: Would you rather have a new supercar to drive every year, or four annual overseas holidays?

Opening thought: Supercars are something us guys have wanted from day one basically. They are amazing and make you smile, but will the appeal driving them around your home town trump that of discovering the world each year with all great travel opportunities…
