Allusion to the NSA spying scandal, combined with allusion to a cliched stereotype of families arguing angrily with each other (and revealing each others' shameful secrets) while playing boardgames and/or revealing each others' secrets naturally while playing trivia/quiz/personality/psychology games.

This was the part I was confused about. I guess I get it, now. Thanks. I'm not sure this has really ever happened to me... ???

I've never experienced it either. I had to work backwards from the joke that it happened to anyone.

Incidentally, I suspect the OP used a static link to dynamic content -- the comic has changed. ...To another spy joke?
