Best Responses to ‘May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor’

The best response to “May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor” is simply to say “And may the odds be ever in your favor as well.” This is a friendly and polite response that plays along with the reference to the Hunger Games.

The Hunger Games movies and books feature characters wishing “may the odds be ever in your favor” to one another before competing in the games. So responding similarly keeps things lighthearted. You can choose to leave it at that short response or add on well wishes to the person as well.

Playful Responses

“I’ll Do My Best to Come Out On Top”

This response plays up the competitive, game-like nature of the reference. It indicates you’re ready to take on whatever challenge lies ahead, while keeping things fun.

You can respond by pretending you’re a Hunger Games tribute ready to compete and try to win. This shows you understand the reference and are going along with the joke. Other playful responses in the same vein include:

  • “Let the games begin!”
  • “I’ve got survival skills that’ll impress even Katniss.”
  • “Just don’t expect me to volunteer as tribute.”
  • “I’ll have to start training with my bow and arrows now.”

Thankful Responses

“Why Thank You, That’s Very Kind”

Responding gratefully and emphasizing the well wishes behind the reference maintains a positive tone.

Even though the saying originates from the deadly Hunger Games competition, it’s often used lightly before innocuous contests or challenges. So a response focusing on the kind sentiment keeps things cheerful. Other upbeat, thankful responses include:

  • “I appreciate the good luck wishes!”
  • “Thanks, I can use all the luck I can get!”
  • “That’s so nice of you to say.”
  • “Thank you, I hope the odds are in your favor too.”

Witty Comebacks

“I’m Pretty Sure the Odds are Never in My Favor”

This comeback playfully acknowledges your seeming lack of good fortune. It self-deprecatingly admits you don’t often have luck on your side.

You can joke about how things never seem to go your way or how you always manage to choose the hardest path. That shows you recognize the well intentions while still injecting some humor. Other witty comebacks include:

  • “Are you sure you want to wish me luck? You know how often things go wrong for me.”
  • “The odds are definitely not in my favor but I’ll give it my best shot anyway.”
  • “I’d have better chances winning the actual Hunger Games.”

Supportive Responses

“Thanks, I Know I Can Count on Your Support”

This reply focuses on the backing and encouragement implicit in the quote. It thanks them for believing in your success.

  • “I appreciate you thinking so highly of my abilities!”

Overdramatic Responses
