Water game (English version) – Adventerra Games
Water game (English version) is one of the four educational board games produced by the Swiss-Italian company Adventerra Games. All four board games are focused on environmental themes and a desire to inspire families to respect nature and safeguard our planet.
The objective of water game is for the players move along the river based on rolls of the dice, ending their turns on green or red zones and taking a card of the same colour.
Green cards list positive actions that they can take to save water, which accumulates in their personal water tank, marked with an indicator on the board edge.
Red cards warn them about bad water-wasting habits that will reduce the water in their cisterns.
Some cards require the player to draw the next blue “quiz” card and answer a question about water in the world. Depending on their answer, their positions on the river may change for better or worse!
When all the players have arrived at the river mouth, the winner is the one with the most water in her or his personal water tank.
However, nobody wins if any player finishes the trip with less than ten gallons of water. This rule creates an incentive for water-rich players to donate to the community water jug, from which water-poor players may drink when they need to.
- Water game is an educational board game through which children learn to change their daily habits to save water. The game helps them learn about good water-saving habits, and helps them avoid bad water-wasting habits.
The game includes a difficult challenge — will the players learn how to work together to finish the game without leaving a thirsty neighbour behind? This lesson in teamwork goes well beyond the lessons about personal behaviour; children learn that water is not just a scarce economic good, but that access to water is a civil right.
Players learn about the water cycle and its importance, the main ways that water is saved and wasted, correct daily habits to save water, the main causes of water pollution, water polluting behaviours to avoid as well as why and how to cooperate.
The cards allow children to practice their reading and arithmetic skills.
Water game is also available in French.
This material is suitable for children aged 7 years and up.
