Halloween’s done and dusted which means only one thing: the holidays are coming. And alongside yuletide, joy, eggnog and hot chocolate comes family entertaining, which let’s be honest, isn’t always the easiest of tasks.
Kids and adults alike are glued to their screens, and no sooner than that last bite of dessert is one back on their smartphone, mindlessly scrolling through Instagram. But what was life like before we were tethered to these devices that connect us to all the knowledge of humankind? How was one entertained? How did we form conversations? More importantly, what did life look like before emojis?
Well, After Dinner Amusements cards want to remind you of those simpler times.

These tiny little cards provide you, your guests and your family with the start of meaningful conversation. They will show you that there is indeed a world that involves face-to-face communication, and that an exchange of ideas can exist without keyboard, touchscreen or back-to-back meme tagging.
The ‘Family Time’ pack offers 50 “thoughtful and playful questions about the past, present, and future [that] will inspire great family conversations,” while ‘Do You Remember?’ doles out 50 “thought-provoking questions about players’ pasts [that] will spark sweet memories and lively discussion.” Those are pretty lofty promises, but if the Amazon reviews are to be trusted, then the cards are definitely worth the $8. For less than the price of two lattes, you’ll share stories, laughs and “intimate secrets.” Worth it, if you ask us.
Feeling a little more adventurous? ‘Truth or Dare’ cards might be up your alley (admittedly, these are not family friendly). There are even ‘Get Smart’ trivia cards for our inner geeks…though we do question the longevity of this set. Bonus, the cards are so small they fit comfortably in your pocket, so they can also double as a conveniently portable gift for your host.
WHO IT’S FOR:
Hosts who want a little easy after dinner entertainment, parents who want to have more meaningful conversations with their children.
