How to play Secret Dinner Mission!

Updated on January 9, 2014

How to boost your everyday family dinner - or your party - with a fun secret game!

This fun little game is exciting, and is completely free to make. All you need is a pen and some paper, and you are set to go! It can be used at any type of party, but is also very amusing just to play with your family at your everyday dinner!

How to play

So you think your everyday family dinner is getting a bit dull? Or you are throwing a party and you want something extra to spice it up? No problem, you landed on just the right lens for you!

Secret Dinner Mission is a fun game and can be played from 2 to an unlimited number of participants. When you sit down at the table, everyone picks a secret dinner mission, from the pre made index cards (see below) before you start to eat.

You have until the last one at the table finishes he's/her meal to complete your mission.

You are not allowed to disclose or talk about your mission to anyone.

Everyone that completes the mission gets a point, and then you can award a prize for "This weeks/months winner" or whatever you like.

The dinner missions

Start by finding 10 sheets of paper and a pen.

Cut out the papers to equally sized index cards.

Write a secret mission on each card. Here's some suggestions:

- You have to steal the fork from the person sitting to your right, without him/her noticing it, so he/she has to ask for a new one.

- You have to get the person to your left to say the word "Einstein"

- Get the person sitting to your right to say he's or her own name!

Its completely up to you - write something that applies to the situation.

Watch the fun!

Its always funny to play Secret Dinner Mission, because you get to see people think very hard to complete their missions.

Lets say you got the mission "Get the person to your right to say the words: Albert Einstein", now how do you do this?

You are not allowed to say any of the words yourself, so you will have to twist it a little... you could say bluff and say:

Hey how do you think Newton came up with the theory of relativity? and then hope your target person says "It wasn't Newton, it was Albert Einstein".

You could also bluff and ask: Who invented the theory of relativity?

But be very careful, because you have to have a reason for doing this! If you just say: Who invented the theory of relativity? people will immediately guess that this has something to do with your mission.

Likewise you have to be alert to what people are asking you, because they might do it to complete their mission.

Its always funny to see how everyone watches everyone with suspicion, to figure out what the missions are.

For the party!

Send out the mission together with the invitation or after the person RSVPs the invitation. Point out that he/she has to keep it top secret and not tell to anyone what the mission is.

When people arrive, you can explain that everyone has a secret mission, and there is a prize (which you can display somewhere) for the most clever completion of a mission.

When the dinner is over, everyone that has completed the mission should stand up and tell how they completed it, and you can award the prize to the person you think did it best.

Of course this is just a suggestion to get you thinking, so you find out exactly how to use the secret dinner mission at your party!
