Hello. Could you please tell me if 'Not particularly.' and 'Not really.' can be used interchangeably in such examples as below? Thank you.

- Are you ready to play the enjoyable game with us?
- Not particularly. / Not really. (polite 'No' as I don't think the game is enjoyable at all)

    The term not particularly is quite common, and, to a lesser extent, so is not especially.

    Other common expressions are not quite, not exactly, etc.
