Conversation Starter – the anti-game

I think there are a lot of us who want to turn off the television and have more and better conversations with our partner. Great, but what do you talk about? Where do you start?

After a while you want something deeper or more interesting than how was your day, where do you want to go on holiday this summer, what are we going to do this weekend and what do you want for dinner? The problem is that often we don’t have the energy or the creativity to come up with great questions.

I think there is a need for some type of “game”, a Trivial Pursuit/Bezzerwisser-type game with hundreds of great conversation starters. An anti-game where the purpose is not focused on beating your opponent, but getting to know her/him as well as getting to know yourself. Different versions could be made for different types of relationships e.g. parent-child, co-workers (think team-building) or friends.
