Table Talk: a game of conversations
Get the resource >
Wouldn’t it be great to have meaningful conversations with our family and friends about the things that really matter in life? Wouldn’t it be great to get together around a table to talk, laugh, be understood and get to know another’s point of view? The aim of Table Talk is to provide a fun place for people to begin to have these kinds of conversations about the important questions in life. As you get together over six sessions, conversation will flourish and relationships will be built and strengthened.
Box with instruction and 6 topic cards, and 16 smaller questions cards per topic. Currently mixed titles including Easter, Christmas, friends, blokes, the Forces, a variety of teenage age groups, Messy church, students and more planned. From www.table-talk.org

Nicely presented box games. Apps are superbly created, easy and fun to use.
Instructions very clear. Aim is to stimulate conversation about big issues in relaxed way.
Easy to use leader's card included, and topic introductions are short, clear, thought-provoking and cringe-free. App option is also clear, intuitive and fun.
A leader with enthusiasm to set the scene, but aim is to act as facilitator rather than leader.
Interesting conversation starters, where participants choose the theme.
Apps are brilliantly conceived, free, and very easy to use.
Little for game, but vision is for a relaxed setting around food or meal.
Good website at www.table-talk.org which includes creative suggestions for use. Training events offered.
More titles planned. Some examples of theme may date, but could easily be replaced by more contemporary ones.
Inherent idea behind the game, although calling it a 'game' is slightly misleading. It's really a vehicle for good conversations. All encouraged to chat.
All conversation-based by design.
Starter questions should suit a wide variety of people. Participants chose the questions they want. Might even help those who find conversation difficult. No right or wrong answers.
Main aims are to create relationships and a safe place to talk about big issues.
Introductory comments may include allusion to a biblical story.
Implicitly by linking topics to Christianity in a very light way.
Assumption that God is relevant to all of life.
This is an outreach and relationship-building tool, but does encourage thought on big issues and how Christianity may relate to them.
Good tool for opening up subjects relevant to faith.
Starter questions only, though would depend on how the conversations went.
Very well. Focused around these. Would encourage real conversation about them too.
That's part of the point of table-talk, and would be a tool for this.
Depending on invitations, potential is there.
