I picked up my first box of Table TopicsTM
on a whim while shopping in one of those funky little shops you see in the artsy parts of any city. A four-inch clear acrylic cube holds 135 cards, each with a provocative question that is sure to inspire lively, and meaningful, conversation
. I discovered these little cards make a great game for the classroom or meeting room, around the table or on the patio. Use them at any gathering of adults when you want stimulating conversation.
- Which piece of land would you wish to have preserved forever?
- What's your favorite quotation?
- What song evokes the strongest memories for you?
Ideal for up to 10. Divide larger groups.

Cube of Table TopicsTM

Select a person to begin, and ask him or her to pick a card from the Table TopicsTM
