Something to Talk About...TableTopics

In December 2002, Cristy Clarke was on her way to a Christmas cocktail party, trying to think of interesting conversation starters because she couldn't face another evening of small talk that went nowhere. Her experiment was a complete success, and by morning she was writing questions to test on her three daughters at their family dinner. The successful result is TableTopics, a collection of conversation starters meant to spark fun, interesting, and meaningful discussions around the dinner table, at parties, on dates, on road trips-wherever! We have been carrying them for quite awhile and our customers have loved the Original Version, Girls Night Out, and the Gourmet Version. You can learn alot about people by going through the cube! The latest Decades Versions for the 60’s, 70's and 80’s have just arrived and they are really FUN!
