Family is everything. And thanks to family meals we do spend a few hours together as an entire family on a regular basis. Planning meals and gathering everyone around the table is work. But how much effort do we put to make family meals interesting and intellectually stimulating for all family members?
Here we offer 3 games for a casual family dinner with a twist. These games work well for all ages, enable you to discover something new about each other and require zero logistical preparation. No hassle -score!
Game N1. Would You Rather…
Take turns asking a question starting with “Would you rather …?” and completed with 2 choices you wanna give. The options are endless from something serious you wanna know to something fun and light:
- Would you rather go to Disneyland or go diving in Thailand?
- Would you rather write a book or shoot a movie?
- Would you rather become friends with Superman or Steve Jobs?
- Would you rather see in the dark or read people’s thoughts?
- Would you rather swim as fast as a dolphin or run as fast as a leopard?
Game N2. Two Truths and a Lie.
Ask each family member to think of 2 true facts about themselves and one made-up fact, “a lie”. It is best when the facts are not widely known. Go around the table and share all your three facts. The other family members have to guess which one is a lie. This game works best when different generations are present. Frequently grandparents surprise everyone the most with their facts, which sparks enormous interest from younger generation o know more.
Ask everyone at the dinner table to imagine they have a gift of teleportation, and it is granted for 24 hours only. Everyone shoul tell a story answering these questions:
- Where in the world would you go?
- Who would you bring along?
- What would you do?
- What will you bring back from that place?
