This is my set of 77 philosophical questions, which I have selected from many hundreds I found in a multitude of articles, discarding many that were either already addressed by science or were too specific or not interesting enough, and then edited good ones or came up with short generalized versions for our conversational game.

5 Rules of the Game: 

  1. Draw a question blindly, read it silently, and interpret it with "to you" or "in your opinion" if not stated.
  2. If you like it, read it aloud, if not, draw again. You can skip two questions.
  3. Interpret the question creatively and give a short and a long answer, addressing comments and questions.
  4. The next person in the circle repeats steps 3-4 for the same question until everyone participates.
  5. Then the person after the one who picked the last draws a new question, step 1. 

Everyone is invited to write their own question in addition to the prepared ones below. Sometimes I will choose one question ahead of the game night.
