5th day of christmas giveaway #2! family talk game.

Family Talk Game.
{via Around the Table Games}.

Do you find your dinner table conversation a bit stagnant? {if you have time to even eat dinner together, we hardly have time!} Or do you chauffeur your kids around all day and need some conversation starters for the car?

“Family Talk is so uncomplicated that you can play it almost anywhere-around the dinner table, in the car or anyplace your family or friends congregates. Just draw a card, read the question and let the fun begin! Diverse topics reveal surprising answers – even from hard-to-talk-to teens. And with Family Talk, everyone’s a winner!”

  1. MMW :

    Oh, I love dinner time talking. What a great way to get more conversations going!

  2. gahome2mom :

    I think this would be great for start up conversations.

    We sometimes get tired of hearing about work and this could be great. dawg2260 (at) gmail (dot) com

  5. the emily :

    Ever since my husband and I have been married we struggle with dinner conversation. Any other time we’re fine, but sit us at the dinner table and we’re quiet. Well, now we’re dealing with kids, but when kids aren’t around, it’s just…quiet. So pick me!

  6. Lisa :

    Fun, I would love this!

  7. The Jacobsen Family! :

    We’re really bad about putting on the TV while we eat dinner… REALLY bad!! This would be a good excuse NOT to do that!

  8. Anonymous :

    I have a very picky eater that takes a long time to eat dinner so this would give us something new to talk about other than “why aren’t you eating?” :-) But is sounds like it would be great for long road trips in the summer.

    This would be so much fun on car trips–we do a lot of traveling. Thanks for the opportunity to enter!

  10. Poulsen Family :

    I’ve heard about this and have bookmarked their site because I thought it was such a great idea…maybe just maybe if I keep my fingers crossed you’ll pick me.

  11. JamericanSpice :

    We don’t have much dinner talking and I would love to change that…so maybe having something like this would help stimulate fun conversations

  12. WiJoyMom :

    We are a family of 8…most of us can talk, only 1 doesn't talk yet (11 mo. old), 26 mo. old is learning more vocabulary every day.

    I would love to have help figuring out our talk at the table. It would be nice to take a break from the daily stuff…for this game & put some purpose to our meal times. Feed our bodies (w/food) & nourish our family bond (w/family talk game).

  13. ashley marie :

    it would spice up our dinner conversations; I’m sure of it. Only because I’m sure it wouldn’t lead to yet another discussion about bodily functions and how funny they are.

  14. tsslug :

    communication comes in many ways,
    games are a way to express things
    God bless our troops

  15. noreen :

    this would be great when the inlaws are over, talk about stilted talk!! lol

  16. Jennifer :

    It would give some new ideas, instead of the same old conversations at dinner!

    This would be great to get away from the usual “how was school today” questions.


  20. windycindy :

    Our family of four eats most dinners together, so this name could be a lot of fun! Please add my name to your drawing. Many thanks, Cindi

  21. louiseb130 :

    We’d love to try this on game night

  22. moonshadow43 :

    My daughter has recently married and is now helping raise 2 boys age 8 and 10. This game would be perfect to help her get some communication going with them at the dinner table, in the car or anywhere.

  23. Stephen :

    This would give us more to do than chew… ;)

  24. Christina G. :

    Our dinner talk is already spicy, so this might drive us over the edge. :) Thanks for the giveaway!

  25. Renee G :

    I’m hoping this would enough to entertain my boys and make them want to participate in family mealtime.


  26. Shannon :

    We don’t talk much at dinner so this could help.

  27. justicecw :

    This would be a great way to get us talking at dinner after a long day! thanks for the chance, justicecw@hotmail.com

  28. Jessica G :

    we could use ANYTHING to spice up our dinner time1

  29. Shelley K. :

    OH, how fun…plus this would be great at…FAMILY get togethers…you know what I am talking about…the ones where it is sometimes uncomfortable (especially if it is the inlaws and people are not getting along LOL!!)

    great giveaway

  30. Sharon :

    I have 2 teens and we need some help with talking…great kids, but not the best conversationalists. Thanks for entry!

  31. Misty :

    i think this would be great for those awkward family get togethers and nobody really knows what to say to each other.
    hope to win.

  32. one6ylady :

    I’d love to have this game because I have two teenagers, and getting them to talk is like pulling teeth, but they love games, so this might just do the trick.

  33. Carla :

    My family is so uptight about everything this could be a great breakthrough item to make some conversation

  34. mverno :

    love to win

  35. Melissa :

    My family is always bickering at the dinner table. So and so is looking at me, she won’t pass the butter, etc. Maybe some structured talk time is just what we need!

  36. Greg R :

    Anything to keep the conversation flowing

  37. Donna M. Clark :

    This would help to change the dinner conversation a little from blah to interesting.


    Anything to improve communication would be awesome!

  39. klp1965 :

    games always make things more fun even conversation :)

  40. Donna :

  42. phyllisg :

    I am open to all ideas. I have a large family.

  43. nansmile :

    I have 2 sons; one is very talkative, the other needs prompts to start talking. This game sounds like fun for the whole family. Nancy

  44. lilyk :

    I think this would spice up my dinnertime conversation because it sounds very interesting.

  45. artmarcia :

    Our family always needs a nudge to start talking, but once we get going have a lot to say. this would be great at dinner. Beats, “How was your day?”
