Personalogy is a game that comes in two editions, one is for adults and the other for family. Each game consists of over 100 topical and intriguing questions with multiple-choice answers. Players are challenged to guess what answer their opponent will most likely select and why. Questions cover everything from lifestyle, pop culture, psychobabble, to sports and dating.

I tried both games with a group that had gathered at my home for a meal, and we enjoyed the samples. Here are a few that we used:

The game was developed by two - Michelle Burke & Lilamani de Silva - who designed it "to dramatically increase the speed at how well people get to know each other." The two traveled across Europe and the United States beta testing the game by playing with people they met on trains and planes, in restaurants and bars, even in line waiting for some event to begin. They claim it broke down barriers and that Personalogy allows people to really connect in a fun way. "People want to feel connected. We want to feel like we matter to one another," says Burke.

"The goal", they say, "is to spark off fantastic conversations where people happily reveal more about themselves and learn more about other people, than anyone could ever imagine."
