Whether you’re among friends, family or colleagues, it’s just so easy for everyone to fall into the conversational rut of polite chit-chat. Ready to get just a little bit deeper? No matter the occasion, conversation card games are here to save the day! Scroll through the slides above to see our picks.

Recently, TikTok user @alliegoneaway started a viral trend by suggesting, “Every grown adult needs a stand out dinner party question.” We think that’s great advice!
First of all, what is a dinner party question? Think of them as conversation starters that you can interject into any setting, in any company. These questions should spark conversation– not controversy. Steer clear of politics, religion and other hot button topics. And they shouldn’t allow “yes or no” responses; the best dinner party questions are ones that are open-ended, inviting people to explain their choice.
The original poster’s suggestion: “If after you die, you could come back for only five minutes – and you couldn’t see your family or friends – where would you go?”
Here are more suggestions to have in your back pocket for the next lull in conversation over dinner or drinks. Be your own conversation card game!
