Reviving dinner time conversation


It’s hard to remember a time before cell phones pervaded every human interaction – especially smart phones. Now in an attempt to win back the attention of dinner guests, someone has invented The Phone Stacking Game, The Huffington Post reported.

At the beginning of a meal the attendees are asked to place their phones face down on top of each other in the middle of the table. No one is allowed to pick up and check their phone during the meal. If someone gives in and reaches for their phone – they pay the entire bill.

If everyone manages to leave their phones in the stack, everyone pays for themselves. When the bill arrives the game is over.
