Boston, MA (May 8, 2020)– Tucked inside every round of an Adventerra game is a challenge for kids to think, work collaboratively and solve the task at hand. Toy industry experts have been so impressed by Global Warning, Recycle Rally, PowerHaus and WaterGame (each $24.95) board games that they have handed out over two dozen honors in the few months since this European-based company has entered the American market. New for Spring 2020 are Seals of Approval by The National Parenting Center and glowing reviews by Mom’s Choice, PAL and Tillywig Awards.

“This intergenerational game challenged kids to use higher level language and cognitive skills to work collaboratively, think critically, analyze, compare and revise to come up with the best and highest value solutions,” wrote PAL Awards of the board game, Global Warning. “What fun to watch minds work to solve global problems in our environment while learning about real life situations from Bombay to Mid-Saharan Africa and arrive at viable solutions to save our planet. When asked what they liked about the game, kids said, ’It’s cool’ and ‘I learned a lot about global warming,’ — just what we’d hoped for!”

Toy judges, educators and kids sampled each game and came to the same conclusion – these games are a fun way to learn how to protect our shared world! Recent honors included three Spring 2020 Seals of Approval from The National Parenting Center, four Mom’s Choice Awards, a 2020 Tillywig Best Family Fun Award, a 2020 Tillywig Top Fun Award and four PAL Awards. On top of these prestigious awards, all four games were authenticated as serious STEM products by STEM.org earlier this year.

WaterGame cleverly pits players for and against one another by giving them a common cause that, if neglected, becomes everyone’s loss,” begins the glowing write up by Tillywig. The awards organization gave WaterGame its 2020 Tillywig Best Family Fun Award. The review continues, “The gloriously illustrated board is a masterpiece of playfulness. Its eye-catching visuals serve a variety of purposes such as keeping track of the communal water supply, a source to which players can turn when running low but that relies on voluntary donations to fend off depletion. Such donations tend to be made strategically by savvy players with their eyes firmly on the prize. For if any player arrives at the end with less than 10 gallons of water in supply, all players lose the game. And while that shared conservation-of-water objective is central to the gameplay, WaterGame serves it up with such an enjoyably entertaining touch that the foremost thing on players’ minds following each game was how much fun they’d just had!”

“Recycle Rally is an enormously fun way for kids to gain a genuine appreciation for the benefits of recycling as well as an understanding how, and why, it works,” writes Tillywig.” A visually stunning board game with easy-to-learn rules and an abundance of playfully crafted, high-quality components, Recycle Rally transforms players into master recyclers who drive trucks around town, picking up recyclable waste and transporting it to the appropriate recycling area on the board.”

“Testers were thrilled to discover a great, educational way for kids to be engaged in a fun game while learning valuable real-life lessons about recycling,” enthused The National Parenting Center.” Recycle Rally is so much more than a simple board game. It opens up discussions about being a responsible citizen, taking care of the planet, and carbon footprints. The game itself is easy-to-learn; it utilizes playing cards and tokens to move your piece around the board collecting trash and recycling it the correct way.”

“Drive recycling trucks around town and maximize your score by collecting higher-value materials. But sort carefully,” warns Mom’s Choice Awards, “If too many recyclables are left behind, useful stuff is incinerated and the whole town is in trouble!”

“Have you been searching for a new and fun way to teach children about energy efficiency?” asks The National Parenting Center. “OK, maybe it wasn’t on the top of your game list, but perhaps it should be! The fact is that it is our kids who are most affected by the actions we take today to change our world. PowerHaus teaches children about the small steps that can be taken to reduce energy waste in our homes and beyond. It is a sophisticated and thought-provoking experience to be sure. Kids enjoyed playing with pretend money, buying energy-efficient appliances, counting the money they need to pay, and what they are earning at every turn. Parents loved the added bonus of all the built-in math lessons!”

“Get ready to learn practical life lessons as you and your friends buy an old house to share, only to find out it leaks heat and wastes energy while eating up your budget!” PAL Awards teases, “Players work to change habits and invest in energy efficient products and services to maximize their impact on the environment. PowerHaus has the framework of Monopoly as you earn energy savings dollars, while learning positive habits and wisely choosing services and products to increase energy efficiency.”

“Once parents saw this game box, they were intrigued and eager to learn what was in store for their family. What they discovered was a unique concept and design that was unlike any other traditional board game they had played before,” emphasized The National Parenting Center. “Much of the game is based on the fact-filled and educational cards, each of which teaches a lesson or gives some facts about water usage or waste. Parents enjoyed sharing the concept of saving water with their kids, and each card helped educate everyone about what is at stake when it comes to our precious water supply.”

“Learn the value of clean water in this cooperative game,” shares Mom’s Choice Awards. “Players roll dice, float down the river, and draw “Savings” or “Wasting” cards. Unlucky players must rely on the community water jug, which requires donations from players who have saved more water. If the jug is empty when someone needs it, everyone loses – so let the negotiations begin!”

“Players work together to clean up the earth and slow climate change while the temperature rises with each turn. Can you and your friends slow it down before ‘Game Over’ happens,” ponders the Mom’s Choice Awards review. “Teamwork and up to 90 minutes of play is needed to win!”
