This game was invented in an English course KKENVAL4 where we were practicing dialogue skills. Our group wanted to work on conflict skills and this game is the end product of that process.
We were inspired by the dialogue practices we had during this course that included following topics: values, judging, assumptions, voicing and listening and forgiveness in organizations. The How to deal with a conflict model and the card game Cards Against Conflict was also inspired by our group values that we set at our first meeting: co-operation, humor, respect, creativity and responsibility. These values were alongside the process whole time, and especially humor is highly emphasized in the game. Cards Against Conflict game is also inspired by the Cards Against Humanity game.
