No raincoat or umbrella is needed to play this game that shows youngsters the value of clean water. Can you save your community’s water from the water monster? Navigate the river to save as much as possible and help your neighbors. WaterGame is very simple but provides a wealth of information on saving water and our planet. Cards with simple and intuitive illustrations show the correct habits to adopt to save water in everyday life. Throughout their journey down the river, players answer quiz questions about water and move forward or back depending on their answers. Unlucky players must rely on the Community Water Tank, which depends on donations from players who have saved more water. If the tank is empty when someone needs it, everyone loses. For ages 7 and up, and fun for the whole family to play together! Ideal for 3 to 4 players. Play can be completed in about 30 minutes.

Uh oh! Your town is overflowing with unrecycled trash. You and your friends race with your trucks through the streets to collect recyclables, and then bring them to the right recycling centers. Players compete as individuals, earning points by achieving their missions, recycling the most precious and the most dangerous objects. At the same time, the team objective is to work together to minimize the objects that are left behind – because if more than 24 items end up in the incinerator at the end of the game, all players lose. The game teaches children how to properly separate recyclables and the importance of doing so. You can customize the game board by choosing the colors of the bins used in your city. Cool. The rules also feature an advanced game mode, recommended for ages 10 and up. Recycle Rally is perfect for 3 to 5 players. The game lasts about 45 minutes.

Players work together to clean up the world and slow climate change, but the temperature rises with each turn. Can you and your friends slow it down before it’s game over for you AND Planet Earth? Game participants challenge each other to solve the most and worst local and global environmental problems. At each turn, color-coded problem cards appear on eight different environmental topics. If not resolved with the right combinations of solution cards, unsolved global problems cause an increase in the Earth’s temperature. Cooperate with the other players to find the best solutions and avoid catastrophe! Teamwork and up to 90 minutes of play are needed to win. Playable by ages 10 and up, this game is an especially fun challenge for teens and adults! Ideal for 4 to 7 players. Makes a terrific multi-generational game night.
