Why We Love It: dinnertime with friends - Too often, we fall back on polite but not so inspired staples. These 40 Placecards with 80 Questions for some fresh meaningful and revealing conversations around the table



  • 40 Placecards with 80 Questions
  • A meal with friends is only ever as good as the questions we ask one another. Too often, we fall back on polite but not so inspired staples: 'Have you got anything special planned for the weekend?' 'What do you do?', and so on.
  • There are more interesting kinds of questions - questions that work like magic keys that open up our hearts and draw out our memories



  1. Use 1 card per place setting.
  2. Fold each card in half and add your guest's name. Now you can select who sits next to whom.
  3. Each card has 2 questions. Prompt your guests to use them over the meal as a way to get to know their neighbours and have more interesting and meaningful conversations.


Cards include the following questions:

  • What do other people not understand about you?
  • What do you worry about in the middle of the night?
  • What's the best way to break up a relationship? 
  • If you were braver, what would you be doing with your life?
  • In what ways is your family especially odd?
  • What have your learnt about yourself in the past year?
  • What do you look for in a very close friend?
