The Dinner Party

A game of social viciousness and revelation for 4-8 mature players. The setting is a dinner party in November 1974 ... the players act out their characters hangups while playing spiteful conversational games and getting progressively more drunk. Can you gain enough courage to face your Issue, or will you collapse in the downstairs lavatory or get thrown out of the party? Uses six-sided dice for resolution, the rules are simple but the tactics are deep. Like a Harold Pinter play, but with less pauses!


In this game, each player takes on the role of guest (or host) at a 1970's dinner party. Each person at the party has their own hangups and issues, and their own "games" which they play to enhance their self-image at the expense of the other guests. Players may seek one of two goals for their character: gain happiness, or gain enough courage to confront their Issue.
