Event description
You're invited to try Geopowr, a fun board game for creating power plants and the energy that the world needs.

About this Event

Geopowr is a fun, easy to learn 3D board game for 1-3 people age 7+, and takes about 25 minutes to play.

All the parts are made of wood, paper and posterboard, and the game box is small enough to easily take it anywhere easily.

Geopowr is a strategic tile-laying game, where you earn solar, geothermal, hydroelectric, wind and fossil fuel points by building power plants for your continent.

The game mechanic is simple and natural, and can be learned within a few minutes. Players lay energy tiles progressingly to form a unique board each game.

You'll receive an orientation to the game by Michael Overduin, who invented Geopowr and is developing expansions for 4 and 6 players with nuclear fusion and biomass energies, respectively.

The game play helps with development of pattern recognition, logic and strategy, and is great for children and teenagers, anyone who enjoys thinking through a problem.

It has been described as elegant, and the gameplay reflects the complexity of our global energy challenge. It includes a psychological dilemma - should players serve only their own continent or work cooperatively to save the planet?

The game offers several layers to engage both beginners (including children) and expert players alike (the inventor is still learning after playing hundreds of games).

Videos of the 2 player game and solitaire game are available on youtube.

Geopowr is featured by Edmonton Made and the CBC website & CBC TV News (from 8:33 min).
