10 Great Dinner Party Questions

I love rich and engaging conversation. Debate, arguing, logic, strong positions, opinions, I love them all... This might be the reason I love those games that inspire discussion. One game we play a lot of comes in a small 4" by 4" by 4" by 4" box. Inside of the box are cards. Each card has one question on it. The questions inspire the kind of talking that I love. At the end of the game (whenever you don't ask any more questions), you learn so much about someone, or everyone. Below are some great questions:

1. If you had to do it all over again, would you choose the same career path?


2. What were (or might be) the best years of your life?


3. What was the hardest decision you’ve made?


4. What are you passionate about?


5. What do you consider to be your strongest character traits?


6. What traits or habits do you wish you didn’t have?


7. Has life made you more hopeful or more cynical?


8. What do you consider to be the biggest world events of your lifetime?


9. What are you most proud of in your life?


10. What do you hope to be remembered for?
