San Francisco Residents to Create "Would You Rather" Card Game

Posted By on Thu, Jan 29, 2015 at 11:41 AM

There are several games we played as kids that happen to double as excellent drinking games now that we’re adults. Or at least, now that we claim to be adults.

This includes, of course, "Truth or Dare," “Never Have I Ever” and “Would You Rather.” And two San Francisco residents are working on creating the latter into a card game — “the most fucked up game of all time,” as they put it.  And they need your help to do it.

For those who aren’t familiar with the game “Would You Rather,” it works by one person asking the other players if they would rather do one thing or another (example: “Would you rather eat only oranges or only apples for the rest of your life?”).

To help come up with questions for their card game version of the game, the creators — Dan Polaske and Jordan Nemrow — are asking people to submit their “Would You Rather” questions on their website.

You can also vote on questions that other people have already submitted to help decide whether they’re funny or controversial enough to be included in the game.

Polaske and Nemrow and their friends ask each other “Would You Rather” questions a lot — Polaske said he once played "Would You Rather" at Dolores Park for two hours — but that only a couple of his friends are usually able to think of good questions, and they wanted everyone to be able to participate, so “[they] decided to make that possible by having a bunch of pre-written questions.”

“If it’s a game of ridiculous questions that we came up with, it would make us look like a bunch of perverts, but if other people did it, it’s not all our fault,” Nemrow said of the decision to have other people help with creating the questions on the website.

“[Would You Rather] is a great way to start controversial conversations in the group,” he added. “[The game] makes it more facilitated.”

Check out the website to read more about the game and submit your questions for a chance for them to be included in the game. And remember — make them as fucked up as possible.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
