An adventurer thirsting for knowledge, you travel the world discovering the incredible and fascinating story of the planet Earth!
With your Destination Card as your passport, you are off on an enthralling trip which will amaze you. A subtle strategist, you try to reach the different natural regions of the world in order to answer surprising questions about Nature and the Environment.
Each correct answer lets you draw an Eco Points Card and collect the much sought-after Eco Points.
The winner is the one who first reaches the ojective printed on the Destination Card drawn at the start of the game.
Students enjoyed it and wanted to play again. I would like to try to obtain additional copies. It's by far one of the best ecology games I have ever seen for secondary students. I felt it was a nice alternative activity for the classroom. The game was educational and increased students awareness of different biomes.
I highly recommend this game. It is our family's favorite game at the moment--we are 2 adults and two children ages 7 and 9. The kids want to play it every day! I hope additional question cards will be available in the future. It can take a while to play, however, you can easily play for shorter time; we play for 6 pieces of the 'sun' instead of 12.
These environmentalists roaming the Earth in search of knowledge and awards need no passports, for this world map features natural, not political, regions in various colors. Everyone draws a Destination Card showing the colors of the 12 Eco Points needed to win. Players take turns as Questioner, and the others roll the thematic circular green die, trying to move to spaces where points can be earned in the colors they need. A chosen question and its several possible answers are read, and each player in turn selects one. Those who answer correctly may earn points determined by the Questioner drawing an Eco Card. Usually, one to three points are awarded, but some cards impose penalties. Several hundred cards have questions on both sides, with answers accompanied by informative and often humorous commentary. Well, what does happen when a frog vomits? Stop wincing and tell us what animal escaped from the Omaha Zoo by opening a locked door (Hint: Edgar Allan Poe might have known.) Become an informed, caring steward of The Earth, and have enormous fun doing it.
