We used to play games like Charades or Pictionary to break the ice during parties. As technology changes, though, so do our options for such activities. TableTopics has been around for quite some time in the cards format that sat around waiting for you to use it. If you want to take things tech (and you’re reading TNW, so you probably do) then you need to check out TableTopcs Mobile.
The app comes in two flavors: one for the iPhone and another for the iPad. Downloading and running it, you’re taken to a main screen that displays choices between topics sets. The apps come with a Starter set and a Happy Hour set. Each of these has 60 questions along the lines of this:
What nicknames have you bee called?
That’s the biggest risk you have taken recently?
Want more topics? You can buy them for $1.99 each. There are 4 others available, from Gourmet to Go Green. While we’re not real thrilled about the pricing, the app is still very clean and done very well. There are two game modes — Original displays the cards as a single stack and Chance will show you 6 from which you can choose. You can edit the stacks, as well, removing questions that you don’t like or adding questions of your own.
Overall, it’s worth the price, but just barely. We’d love to see the present prices dropped by a dollar to really make it a great value. Want to give it a try? You can. Download it for the iPhone or iPad and let us know the questions you’d add in the comments below.
