„This game saves me watching 20 documentaries! You can watch 20 documentaries and what will stick with you, is in this game.“
“We played and played COME ON OVER! until the cafe had to finally close up for the evening. What an enjoyable way to help us build up a meaningful picture of European diversity and learn many interesting facts about EU members!”
“It’s our favourite travel game! So sometimes, when we miss traveling, we just embark on a trip through Europe with ‘Come on Over’! It’s pretty tough to realise how little we know about other Europeans’ traditions (including our own)!”
Barbara, Austria & Benjamin, Belgium
“Come on over! is not a party invitation but rather a truly intelligent and fun card game! Providing the strangest facts about Europe, it is the Indiana Jones amongst the pedagogically useful party entertainments! Europe is in crisis, there is always need for a good present – get the thing!”
…is an innovative and quirky card game in which European countries try to lure you in with fun facts: Singles will be sprinkled with pepper, ferrets stuffed down people’s pants and instruments whittled from vegetables. Whilst the players use their own creativity to create stories out of these facts, the game opens up a humorous exchange about Europe. Including more than a hundred surprising facts about the 28 EU countries and thousands of possibilities for fun stories, COME ON OVER! is the perfect entertaining game about Europe from the age of 12 up, for 3-8 players.
COME ON OVER! has emerged out of the vision to prove that Europe can be fun. We believe in a Europe beyond complex bureaucratic procedures or pessimistic headlines. Instead we want to portray a continent full of quirky humour, creative ideas and amusing stories. We do not pursue a political aim, but a human one: With little-known fun facts about European countries, we want to encourage curiosity and trigger exchange about Europe. These facts also work around the stereotypical ideas we have about the different countries – and sometimes even contradict them. In the end, the content in the game is only a starting point for the fun stories from all over Europe that you will be telling each other whilst playing. The content of the pocket version of COME ON OVER! is limited to the 28 current European Union countries, but we are expanding our horizons. There will be a bigger box version for the games market that will stretch beyond the EU to include more European countries. The game is currently available in German and English, but we are working hard to ensure the game will be widely available in several European languages, the next one in planning being French. We are looking forward to conversations about Europe full of laughter and invite you to COME ON OVER and play with us!
