Add a little fun to your St. Patrick’s Day celebration with these creative St. Patrick’s Day would you rather questions! Questions about everything from chasing rainbows to playing bagpipes! Everyone will be laughing before you know it as you try to choose from two absurd options!
My boys are a bit obsessed with would you rather questions. From Star Wars would you rather questions to seasonal ones like Christmas would you rather, we’ve done a lot of them. I’ve pretty much started dreaming in would you rather scenarios at this point.
These St. Patrick’s Day would you rather questions force you to choose between two St. Patrick’s Day (or Irish) themed scenarios that likely won’t even come true but are still fun to think about.
Like would you rather swim in a pool full of rainbow colored Skittles or gold coins (Scrooge McDuck anyone??).
They’re fun for kids but also really fun for teens, adults, and seniors – play with a classroom or your entire family! Plus, I have three fun ways you can use these questions for games, getting to know you activities, and ways to be a little more active!
Depending on which version of the game you play, you’ll need the following supplies at most:
- Would you rather questions – print them at the bottom of this post or get them in my shop here
- Pen/paper – one for everyone or a dry erase marker works and board
- Scorecard (if keeping score)
- Prize (if keeping score)
How to Play Would You Rather
I’ve included three different activities using these questions below including the traditional just asking questions and then two variations that are better suited if you’re looking for actual games!
I did variation #3 with our New Year’s Eve would you rather game, and it was absolutely hilarious! You can watch the video in this post to see the results of that game (and how to play would you rather in general).
#1 – Everyone Answers each Question
The first way to use these cards is the standard variation that most people have done before – pick a card and everyone chooses one of the answers on the card.
Or if you have a larger group, just have one person answer each question, but I do find it more fun if everyone has to answer!
This variation is great for playing in person or virtual!
You could also do this and make it more active. Ask the entire group the question and designate one side of the room as the first answer option and the other side of the room for the other answer.
As soon as you’re done reading the question, everyone should move to the side of the room that represents their answer.
Send everyone back to the center before reading the next question.
#2 – Pairs Challenge
This is my person favorite option because I just think it’s funny! Plus, it adds a kind of compatibility mode to the game.
Split everyone into pairs. If you don’t have an even number, you can make a group of three but only two players should answer any given question.
Ask a pair one question and count to three. On the count of three, have them say their answer out loud. If they match answers, they get a point. You could also do this with multiple pairs at once, but it’s funnier to be able to watch one individual pair.
Move onto the next pair or keep asking that pair questions until they don’t match, earning points for each question they match correctly.
The pair with the most points at the end of the game wins!
#3 – Match the Majority
If you’re playing this version, you’ll need a pen and paper for everyone before you start playing so they have someone to write their answers.
You could also just give people cards that have 1 or 2 on them if you want to make it a little simpler.
Ask one of the questions and have people write down an answer, trying to guess what the majority will guess. It’s pretty funny to see how people answer because half the time what they answer isn’t actually what they’d choose and the majority is actually changed because people answer what they thought others would.
On the count of three have everyone flip over their answers. Anyone who gets the same answer as the majority of the group gets a point. Ask another question and do the same thing.
If it’s a tie, no one gets a point.
The person who has the most total points at the end of the game wins.
Ask one person to answer a specific question on screen and have others answer in the chat box if you’re doing this virtually and don’t have time to have everyone answer each question individually. That’ll help keep people more engaged when it’s not their turn to answer.
Laminate the cards and save them for next year. While you may not want to play variation #1 with the cards again, #2 and #3 work again and again!
Choose pairs either randomly using playing cards (two matching cards per couple playing) or pair couples or family members together.
Let people ask their own questions just for fun if you’re doing just the ask and answer variation. It’s fun to see what people come up with!

This is all of the St. Patrick’s Day would you rather questions I have. I have a ton of different themed questions including Star Wars, Harry Potter, Disney would you rather, and pretty much any holiday you can imagine. You can find all my would you rather questions here.
This game is good for any age, especially if you’re just asking questions. If you’re doing the actual game variations, I’d say ages six and above that understand what you’re trying to do (match a partner, match a majority) so they don’t get frustrated.
