There are classic tourist leaflets and there can be atypical supports such as the most basic board games, to help people discover a territory in a different way. In these times when generations live together without hardly crossing paths anymore and when specialists denounce the importance taken by screens among young people, a good old game of cards, around a camping table or on a corner of a beach towel , can help to reconnect while helping to (re)discover the territory.

Reviving the fashion for board games in a modernized version, with the complicity of Editions Geste, such is the bet in any case of the duo Grégory Gendre-Ludovic Nadeau, better known under their pseudonym “Ludo” (each of whom knows the comic strip adventures of Sylvère and Dédé and the tide calendars).

With the Ile d’Oléron Family Game, the two friends offer parents and children the opportunity to have fun together by subverting local clichés. Families who sketch with humor and tenderness the different “human types” (secondary residents, craftsmen, other sportsmen, ordinary vacationers, local producers or even eco-friendly people), putting locals and neo-Oléronais on the same level. as long as they share the same love of “their island”.

Playful

“We must not lose sight of the fact that the main objective is to entertain,” insist the co-creators. “There is of course the fun side of the project, quickly overtaken by the desire to contribute something to the knowledge of local heritage,” explains Grégory Gendre, flanked by Ludo and their accomplice who worked on coloring the characters, this Saturday, May 4 at Fort Royer, in Saint-Pierre-d’Oléron, for the official presentation. The famous game will soon be offered for sale in the markets of Chéray and Les Salines, from the usual distributors of Ludo comic albums or even perhaps in tourist offices or even at Fort Royer.
