This family shakes things up at dinner with a special food version of roulette, where players choose their own meal, but they don’t know what the dish is until after they’ve made their choice.
If you’re looking for a fun way to switch up dinnertime, TikToker and parent Bethany (@_mamma_b) has the perfect game that involves the whole family. Recently, Bethany posted a video of her family playing a round of dinner roulette, where each person chooses a meal from a series of secret options, and viewers loved the clever dinner table game.
The clip opens with a shot of Bethany’s children sitting at the dinner table, which includes an assortment of dishes hidden under pots and pans.
“That one,” Bethany’s son says, pointing to the pink pot on the right and making his choice. “What is it?” Bethany asks excitedly from behind the camera.
Bethany’s youngest daughter lifts the pot to reveal her brother’s meal of two turkey sandwiches with a side of meatballs.
Next is Bethany’s older daughter, who picks up her pan across the table to find a cheeseburger with fries.
“Aww, I wish I had that,” notes the younger daughter. Her disappointment is short-lived, however, as her turn is next. She points to a floral print mixing bowl and is delighted to discover turkey, stuffing and potatoes waiting for her underneath. “Boom, baby,” she cheers, pumping both fists before digging into the little Thanksgiving feast.
After the kids have eaten their dinners, it’s the parents’ turn to choose, starting with Dad, who ends up with a cheeseburger and a side of fries, and ending with Mom, who gets a sub sandwich and Doritos.
Viewers took to the comments to thank Bethany for sharing the creative dinner game, with many noting that it’s also a great way to use up leftovers.
“A way to keep things interesting. Good job,” complimented one user.
“I’ve never seen this ‘parenting hack’ but it’s brilliant,” commented one TikToker.
“Leaves done right,” declared one viewer.
If you’re looking for a fun game that’s also a smart way to use up leftovers in the fridge, a round of dinner roulette is worth a try.
