THE PHONE STACK GAME

I think it just looks sad when you see a table of people at dinner, and none of them are talking to each other because they’re all texting.  So I have to call this idea GENIUS. 

 

 

–It’s a new game called “The Phone Stack” . . . and it’s a BRILLIANT way to keep everyone from texting, emailing, or staring at their phones during dinner.

 

 

–When you get to dinner with your friends or family, everyone puts their phone in a pile in the center of the table, face down.  As the phones buzz, beep, and ring throughout the meal, no one’s allowed to grab theirs to check on it.

 

 

–AND . . . if someone can’t resist and grabs their phone, they have to pick up the check.  The ENTIRE check.

 

 

–A 20-year-old blogger in Ventura, California named Stephie is getting the credit for coming up with the game.  She posted about it on her blog six days ago, and it’s BLOWING UP.

 

 

–She says, quote, “[The] basic premise is to just get people open to the idea of staying active and attentive to one another.”

 

 

–Elie Ayrouth is a writer at the website Foodbeast.com.  She says it’s, quote, “one of the coolest pieces of socially engineered live gaming I’ve ever heard of.”
