How did I create the game?

In 1988, with my two friends game creators, Odet L’HOMER and Matthieu D’EPENOUX, we got into the habit of meeting regularly for "Brainstorming communication games" weekends. Matthieu always insisted that we have at least TWO ideas for games per weekend.

CONTRARIO was born thus. At the start we even had a game board with one start and two arrivals. It quickly disappeared, in favor of a game based entirely on cards. We then created several thousand devious phrases and titles. At the time our brains were CONTRARIO formatted and all conversations between friends and family were used. We must of course thank our accomplice, Odet, author of nearly 90% of the hijackings, he remains the soul of the game.

The game was a superb success in its metal case and with its CONTRARIO 2 version, and its sales are increasing with its new bagged edition.

L’éditeur Nord-Américain Foxmind, nous a alors demandé de réaliser une version US du jeu. Elle porte également le nom de CONTRARIO.
