ONE BY ONE, 10 grinning people walk into a room, elbows bent and forearms outstretched as they curtsy slightly to show the camera what they’re carrying. The first is holding a board laden with potato-and-pastry-based beige treats; the second appears with a board full of scattered chips and a few jars of dip. The third person is also holding a board—this time featuring slices of pizza.
The fourth person’s board has wings, the seventh’s is an artfully arranged rainbow of candy, and the ninth’s has the most recognizable board fodder: meat and cheese. This is a TikTok of 21-year-old Rayann Prophet’s “board night,” also known as a “bring a board” night—which is exactly what it sounds like.
