This word describes what I go through every time I start to think about which wonderful word to choose for my next post! There are just so many options … do I choose this one or that … or put those two together … are they really the same though? Etc. etc.

“A quandary is more than just a problem, it’s a dilemma where both solutions are equally unpleasant”

During the quandary about where to start writing this post I looked on Google images. (As I do.) I found pictures of an online game called ‘Quandary’. The question was asked ‘Got what it takes to lead a world?’ And I decided to find out.

So you become the leader of a group of people on the planet Braxos. Then you need to mediate between the people and make decisions regarding different problems …quandary game

  • there are native animals attacking sheep – build a fence or hunt the predators?
  • a well is making people sick – dig a new one or take over an existing one?
  • uniforms – to wear them or let everyone choose their own clothes?

Anyway, it was an interesting game. Now the quandary is – will I play in again?

Wonderful Words that are similar to quandary –

  • quagmire – an awkward, complex, or hazardous situation
  • conundrum – a confusing and difficult problem or question
  • impassea situation in which no progress is possible, especially because of a disagreement
