How to play
An oxymoron is a figure of speech which contains words that seem to contradict one another. Most oxymorons are two words in length. In this game, players challenge themselves or others to see how many of these 'contradictions in terms' they can come up with in a given amount of time. The winner is the player who comes up with the most.
This word game is similar to Irish Bull.
The players write down as many oxymorons as they can think of in 5 minutes. After which they take turns reading them one-by-one to each other. The player with the greatest number is declared the winner.
