You're the playful host or hostess, the kind who makes a dinner party more than a stuffy sit-down. While it's best to avoid heated topics such as politics, you do love a friendly debate. Luckily, you can find totally unconventional decks of cards and other games that are guaranteed to take table talk in many different directions. Simply pass around the deck or place a card on each plate to get the conversations going! These cards feature questions and discussion themes about everything from history, culture, art, food and current events to creating a storytelling thread that each diner adds a bit of detail to. These games challenge guests' imaginations while they're indulging their palates during dinner.
