Cell phone ‘game’

I’m thinking…musing…wondering…observing…

Too many of us, myself included, are in little techno silos, isolated from those around us in real-time/space. We are hunched over our little devices which we love so much, but which are probably not that helpful in nurturing authentic relationships.

So, how about this little ‘game’ which I read about on FB today.  It has potential for learning, connecting, and focus. Hmm…who is willing to play?

Here are the rules of ‘engagement’….

Everyone puts their phones in the middle of the table. Whoever cracks first by touching their phone, pays for the entire meal.

The purpose of the game was to get everyone off their phones, away from twitter, facebook, texting, etc and to encourage conversations. In other words, help cure the “Anti-Social Social Media Craziness.”


1) The game starts after everyone sits down.

2) Everybody places their phone in the middle of the table.

3) The first person to touch their phone loses the game.

4) Loser of the game pays the bill for everyone’s meal.

5) If the bill comes before anyone has touched their phone, everybody is declared a winner and pays for their own meal.
