21 Questions Game – Youtube Vlog Idea

By September 16, 2017 No Comments

Bringing fresh ideas into your youtube channel is hard and many video makers don’t do it, it is much easier to do what you’re experienced at.

But what makes the difference between a viral youtuber and stagnant youtuber is being able to think creatively and constantly improve.

One way to do that is to make videos that let your audience get to know you better, and there’s no better way than to answer personal questions in a vlog.

You can also bring a friend or another youtuber on a video for a possible collaboration. This is a great way to grow both of your’s audiences and bring something new to the platform.

What is 21 Questions Game?

It is a game played on parties or in between of friends to get to know each other better. It is pretty easy and straight-forward.

How To Play It?

You got to prepare a list of 21 funny questions and ask each other. Point is to choose questions wisely and try to get to know that person as much as possible through those twenty one questions, and of course, other person has to answer the question truthfully and not hold back!
There is no limit to what kind of questions for 21 questions game you can ask the other person.

In case you are making a solo vlog, just read the questions and answer them yourself, same way you would do a normal Q/A video, just much more personal.

Good Questions to ask in the 21 Questions Game:

1. If you could be born again with the same knowledge you have now, what would you do differently?

This one can give you some insight into their past, how they spent it and how much they changed.

2. What is the thing that most people think about you, that is actually not true?

This can be probably applied for all of us, there are myths about you that you probably don’t even know of, and they might not be necessarily something bad, but still, people like to gossip.

3. If you could change the way school works, what would you do?

There’s hardly ever going to be a school system that’s going to please every kid and parent, but this way you can see how they think and what’s their opinion towards the education.

4. Is there something you’ve done in the past and you wish you could go back in time and undo it? If yes what is it?

This might be a hard one to answer, your friend will most likely try to avoid the question or he/she will lie and say something instead of giving the true answer.

5. If you could be an animal for 1 day, what would you be?

No real meaning, pretty easy question. You might see them differently depending on what animal they say and what that animal is known for.

6. How would you describe your ideal partner?

Really insightful question, you can get to know what she/he wants in her/his partner, what they like or some specific thing they want in a relationship.

7. You need to spend $500 in 8 hours, what do you do?

$500 to spend

Perfect question to get to know this person better, you will find out about their hobbies, what they spend their money on, as well as how much they are financially responsible and mature.

8. What current trend you don’t like and why?

Everyone has a trend they don’t like in particular, many people don’t like new trends at all, this is a great question to see where they stand with new things happening in the world.

9. Name 1 Movie or TV Show that’s really watched by everyone that you didn’t see?

People’s watching habits can reveal a lot about them. Also, you can see if they have similar interests as you and what’s their opinion about something that everyone likes.

10. If you could change the way kids are parented these days, what would you do?

This is more about changing the culture than being a bit different parent to your kid. You can get to know more about their past and how they were parented and even how much they love their parents.

11. Would you be useful in a zombie apocalypse? What can you bring to the table?

Get to know about their survival skills, what are they good at.

12. What makes you angry?


Pretty self-explanatory question, you can see what they hate in life and many times you can be angry about the same thing.

13. If you needed to spend rest of your life in 1 place, where would it be?

Pretty tough one, one can’t simply decide on 1 place before visiting a lot of places in the world.

14. What’s your addiction?

It can be sweet food, or video games, or procrastinating on social media, basically see what they spend most of their time on.

15. How much do you honestly know what’s happening in the world, outside of your own country?

There are many people that have absolutely no idea what’s going on outside their own country and are so blinded by the media telling them fake stories of stuff that doesn’t matter.

16. What would you write on your grave?

This one is a much more serious question, it is about life meaning, what are their ultimate goals in life, do they want to leave a legacy etc.

17. What is your favorite game to play?

It can be a sport or child’s game or a video game. Again, you can see common interests you have.

18. If someone gifted you a 2 person vacation on a tropical island, who would you go with?

Usually, people will choose their crush or a really close friend, you can get to know their circle of friends a bit more that’s for sure.

19. If you could turn into any person or being, who would it be?

How much do they like their current life or how much do they like someone else’s life and they are maybe jealous?

20. Rich or famous?

An ancient question most of you heard 1 time in your life, can turn into a fun conversation.

21. Truth or happiness?

I personally prefer happiness, it’s the 1 thing that matters the most in life and many people that know the truth, deep down are not happy.

Additional Tips

The whole point of the game is to get to know the other person better, so if the game ends in the middle because of the conversation, that’s fine, because the game served its purpose and helped you get to know each other better.

If you are a youtuber, I highly recommend making 21 questions to ask a guy or girl or even your friend in a Q/A video. No one is doing it yet because everyone is busy with already popular ideas.

Bringing new ideas to your channel and making trends is a great way to get more people from different types of audiences to know about your channel.
