How Many Choices?

Presenting players with choices is great. It engages them with the world and makes them think about their actions. But how many options are best? And how often?
It’s best to present a series of choices, rather than having a single large set of options that are always available. It’s usually better to present a series of five two-option choices rather than give ten options and have the character pick five times. This is because once a player has picked the choice they want, it’s no longer an interesting decision if they have the same choice straight away – they’ll just pick the same thing again.
