Everyone Has an Opinion

  • Party game that gets you talking
  • 6 unique games for 2-50+ players
  • 200 Culture Cards and 100 Opinion Cards

We live in fear of awkward silences. A party invitation comes our way, and we cringe. Not because we don't like the host, or even the other people who were invited. But because we can just picture ourselves, standing by the bowl of chips, at a loss for what to say to some strangers or acquaintances. Nice party, huh? These chips sure are good. ... Don't mind me, I'll just be putting this chip bag over my head and trying to make myself as small as possible so that no one can see me...

But we're smart. Our friends are smart, and the friends of our friends are smart, too. There's a fun conversation hiding inside of us, if we just have the right way to get discussion juices flowing. Enter The Metagame: the ultimate cure for awkward silences. It's six unique party games in one deck, all designed to spark conversations about everything from high art to trashy entertainment... and everything in between. It's not about knowing facts or trivia - it's about having opinions and sharing them. Because we've met you. We know you all have opinions!
