Game Time! This or That for Classic Film Fans

A fun game to play with family and friends! There are several ways you can play our custom-created This or That for Classic Film Fans. Choose from:

Shout-out: Get the conversation going with a group. A game leader reads out the topics and the This or That choices to the group. Everyone “shouts out” their choice and the debate ensures!

Mind Reader: Set up pairs to see how well you know your fellow game players. Team everyone up with a partner. Make sure everyone has a coin and a card, piece of paper or other way to hide the coin. Pick up the coin, ask the question, and place the coin down behind the paper. Heads up if you think their answer will be the first choice and tails up if you think it will be the second choice. Once everyone has made their guess the person answers and reveals their coins.

My Clone: Good for two people who know one another well and a way to take turns leading. To begin: First person reads a question to yourself and think of your answer. Then ask the question. If your partner’s answer matches yours, repeat the process. If they have a different answer than yours, switch it up and they read a question and think of their answer; then they ask you the question. If you are looking to speed things up you can ask the question and both of you answer on the count of three and see if the answers match.

For our classic film fans, 67 This or That questions are below for you to play the game your way. Have fun!
