Andres Tarte & Gerry

A brand new board game developed by my guest in the last hour this morning, Andres Tarte… The name of the game Ecopolis.

A strategy game on developing an urban environment with the minimal used of natural resources.

What would you do to improve the quality of life of the population while avoiding the consumption of natural resources to skyrocket? This is the biggest challenge facing humanity, and which must assume when playing ECOPOLIS.

How to achieve it? To build more roads? Eat less meat? Promote tourism? Invest in renewable energy … Every decision involves some trade-off; nothing is as easy as it seems.

To reach the goal you must manage your national budget wisely, investing in research, negotiate international cooperation, and even confront natural disasters and unscrupulous rulers.

There will be a workshop at Casco Workstation on Wednesday.
