‘Mission Ocean’ Launches December 1st From Adventerra Games Educational Eco Line Of Board Games That Kids Play, Learn Then Prep To Save The Planet
Boston, MA (December 1, 2022) – We’ve all heard of air and noise pollution. But if our ocean friends could talk, they would sound the alarm for plastic pollution! A new board game, Mission Ocean ($29.99 at https://www.adventerragamesusa.com/), alerts youngsters to the everyday dangers of floating plastic in our waters. The empowering nature of the fun-to-play board game has been endorsed by the global nonprofit, The Ocean Cleanup. With a roll of the wooden dice — made from FSC-certified wood — kids can imagine collecting plastic waste floating in the waves and scooping it up onto their ship.
“If today’s preschoolers are going to change the world one day,” envisions France Mer, Director of Marketing, Adventerra Games North America, “their toys need to show them, today, how to make the planet a better place.” Just in time for holiday giving — and multi-generational family discussions — the award-winning toymaker launches their newest board game, Mission Ocean, on December 1, 2022. The board game with a purpose has already earned the STEM.org authentication.
Adventerra Games, founded in Switzerland, always takes a global view with its award-winning games and puzzles. Their evolving and authenticated STEM.org line of games has been creating a buzz in the toy industry with its laser focus on educational eco toys. In this board game, terms like Wind, Life Jacket and Eddy –a circular movement of water, counter to a main current, causing a small whirlpool – become important. Like all games, there’s a little bit of tactical skill and logical thinking needed. But the bonus for Adventerra Games are the early environmental literacy skills children will easily pick up!
In Mission Ocean’s downloadable educational eco guide, kids will discover how sea turtles, birds, fish and mammals sadly interact with tons of plastic in rivers and oceans every day. Worse than eating it, they get tangled and can’t fly or swim away. To help conquer this global problem, children as young as four learn how they can help reduce plastic consumption at home and in their neighborhood. The educational eco guide offers tips to use less plastic, such as substituting balloons with tissue pom poms, or trying bar soap instead of liquid soap in a plastic bottle. Kids become advocates through play.
The typical contents of a board game are all included – 4 animal tokens, 1 ship, 4 wooden disks, 2 wooden dice, 24 waste tokens and the board itself. As Adventerra Games is well known for practicing what it preaches, all parts of the boxed game are made from recycled materials, kid-friendly vegetable inks, FSC-certified wood and paper with every piece recyclable and compostable. The whole game is made in North America, hence reducing its carbon footprint.
New! Mission Ocean • Ages 4+ • $29.99
The ocean animals need our help! In this cute board game, 2 to 4 players race to collect plastic waste floating among the waves and take it to the ship, cleaning up the water to protect sea creatures. To begin, children will have fun assembling the pieces to build The Ocean Cleanup ship. The different waste-collecting compartments match the colors of the wooden tokens and of the marine animals’ kids are responsible for. Parents will be pleased to learn that part of the sales proceeds goes to The Ocean Cleanup to directly support their efforts.
