Mystery Supper (Missions Emphasis Meal)
This dinner could be just for fun and fellowship or in conjunction with your missions emphasis month or one night to simply kick off a specific missions focus.
Choose what kind of food you will serve (Chinese, Italian, Ukrainian, etc.); then get someone to write out the menu in that language. List 12 things including fork, knife, spoon, water, juice, etc.
Have people fill out an order form with three courses of four things. They get those four things, and after a certain time take it all away and bring the next course. You might get only cutlery or all food and no cutlery. After it's over let everyone get seconds so they end up getting a full meal.

Variation: You could use this idea on any random night, and use nonsense words instead of other languages.
