I am impressed by the current round of players in The Dinner Party Game. I remember having to coax and cajole folks to submit their quotes in a timely fashion when we played before. Not so this!

That’s why, even though we’ve talked about it a lot, this is only the second time we’ve played this game: The Dinner Party Game. We opened it up to fictional characters and, unlike the now First Dinner Party game, we imposed no linear time limits. I’ve gone back and read some of the conversations. What
