Quite Contrary

An outdoors cardgame for 1–4 players, best played outside in a local park, garden, plaza, street or laneway. Explore the environment to find objects that best match the playful opposite prompts of each card. Print and play with the physical card deck, or access the online digital version on your phone. Remember - there is no right or wrong! Just enjoy the process, and the joy of noticing your everyday environment.
