Earthopoly is a fun, engaging game specifically for kids. This game mimics the game play for the eternally classic game, Monopoly, making instructions easy for parents to understand and coach their children in. The concepts within the game also engage your children, teaching them about the variety of natural and beautiful areas around the world. In addition to learning about nature, this game also outlines the basic concepts of pollution and clean air, and the importance of not only trying to preserve current conditions, but to improve the damage we've done through redeeming "Carbon Credits". Carbon Credits help begin to introduce kids to the idea of a carbon foot print, and helping to combat your own personal carbon footprint on planet earth. This idea of preserving natural beauty and eliminating you own personal foot print on the earth is a key part of Earthopoly. Earthopoly presents modern day problems in a fun, interactive way that makes learning about earth, pollution, and your own impact not scary and intimidating, but rather interesting and engagin! The tokens used in game play are all symbolic of natural features, products, or materials, helping to build a positive association with nature. When you play as nature, you are also playing for nature, which helps kids identify with nature and understand behaviors on a personal level and a greater scale that can be detrimental to their surrounding ecosystem. On the flip side, this can also help identify behaviors that impact the earth and its ecosystems in a positive way, such as recycling, preserving rainforests, and other earth-saving activities. Bright colors and big, vivid patterns add to the allure and engaging nature of the game. With so many fun designs throughout the game and packaging, it readily grasps the attention of its intended audience - children! Game play is also addictive, with the need to seek out an "earthopoly" on natural wonders and other wondrous locations balanced out by the requirement of avoiding the "dump". Round and around the game board you go, with your main goal to accrue as much value on your natural wonders as possible while avoiding the sludge and grudge of the dump. Make it through the game with your natural wonders having the highest value, and you win!
Earthopoly is a game celebrating Earth, one turn at a time! Players become the caretakers of wondrous locations around the planet then increase their property value by collecting Carbon Credits and trading them in for Clean Air.
It’s all fun and games until someone gets sent to the Dump! So choose your token, (all made by nature of course!), and advance to Go Green.
