Get Everyone Talking!

Grab a Table Topics box and break the ice! Each clear acrylic "ice cube" holds a stack of 135 conversation starters to get guests thinking and talking. Created by Cristy Clarke so she could have compelling conversations at her cocktail parties, Table Topics lets you circulate the question at hand in the cube or pass cards out individually. Made in China.

Having a dinner party? Set an Original card before each diner's plate. Then learn about guests by asking questions such as "What is the best and worst thing about being a man or a woman?" For the 10th anniversary edition, 25 new questions added!

Get ready to talk to friends and first dates with the Teen version that features questions such as, "What will be the best thing about leaving home and what will be the scariest?"

Connect with family members and ask questions from Family Table Topics: "How did your grandparents meet and fall in love?" or ask, "Which famous athlete would you love to meet?"

Couples are challenged to spill the beans when asked, "Which of you is the worst backseat driver?" or "How much do you need in the bank to feel secure?"

Questions from Girls Night Out Table Topics such as "What would the perfect man be?" and "If you had to gain 10 pounds, what would you eat to gain the weight?" will give a new meaning to girl talk.

Explore the "gray" areas of life with the What Would You Do?, a deck of provocative questions that will spark a lively debate and reveal a whole new side to your friends and family. In corporate settings, these questions can be used as an ethics training tool primer or more informally as ice breakers.

Do-It-Yourself Therapy Ever notice how a good talk and a hearty laugh with friends can leave you with an improved outlook on life? It's not just you - research shows that conversation is one of the best coping mechanisms we have. So think of this edition as kick-start for your support system. These lively, playful questions are designed to help you and your friends get down to what makes you tick, twitch and laugh at yourselves.

Banish bland conversation and spice up your soirée with the Foodies edition. Dish out wildcard prompts and tantalizing ice breakers to shake up conversations at your next picnic, potluck, or dinner party. Whet your appetite for information by learning about food, drinks, restaurants, recipes, trends, and your honored guests.

Packed with a dizzying array of questions about wine, beer, cocktails, and all things tipples, the Cocktail edition will go straight to your head! Modern mixologists will enjoy knocking back questions such as "Which celebrity would you like to see at your local bar?" and "Which bar serves the best version of your favorite cocktail?" will help break the ice.

Available in Original, Teen, Family, Couples, Girls Night Out, What Would You Do?, DIY Therapy, Happiness, and Foodie editions.

        it came in a clear acrylic box, of nice weight, so I felt that this was indicative of a higher quality product than if it had come in a paper box. I gave it as a wedding gift and I'm certain the couple will love it for many years to come! I think it was well worth the money.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Delivery was NOT prompt. I paid for Express 3-5 Business days - but received it 9 business days.
              this was very dissapointing as it arrived late for the purpose and I paid the extra fee for poor processing.

                        My husband and I have 3 little kids and tend to spend any time we have talking about them. We bought the Couples game and love it - it makes us bring things back to us every once in awhile and is a great conversation starter for us. Love it. Would be great to play with other couples for a party as well.

                          We have different versions of "Table Topics" and use them for various events like family gatherings, parties for friends, and craft days for grandchildren. In addition, as a teacher I like to give them as gifts to appropriate people. For example we give the "foodie" version to our gourmet-type friends, the original one to our teacher colleagues, and so on. Recently I gave one to a niece who has a new job on a N.Y. talk show and she was thrilled. How better to interview celebrities than with interesting questions and not stale old stuff? Also, I have selectively used some of these with kids as young as 5 to create very rewarding and meaningful dialogue along different themes. Kudos go to the designers.

                            This is a wonderful communication starter between couples be they married for one year or 40 years. Fun, funny, thought provoking. And at a reasonable price; other places were asking twice the amount for the very same product.
