Save the Planet with Earthopoly

Earthopoly manages to celebrate the planet while capturing the classic fun of Monopoly. In Earthopoly players try to become earth champions by becoming the caretakers of wondrous locations around the planet and then increase the property value by collecting Carbon Credits and trading them in for Clean Air. If you waste energy or take long showers you pay a fine and instead of being tossed in jail, luck might just throw you in the landfill. This board game is made with recyclable paper and vegetable oil-based ink. The game playing tokens are super unique and because they’re all made by nature, they vary based on availability. For example, various playing tokens have included a lima bean or giant corn purchased through a local grocer, bamboo ring and a piece of natural crystal.

Family-appropriate Game of Thrones

If the weather is nice, you can always move family game night outside with a rousing game of V:King. V:King, in the past known also as Kubb, is a game you play outdoors, on your lawn, that involves using battle axes to topple your opponent’s Shields in order to claim victory, and of course, the crown. V:King is based on a centuries old Swedish viking game and it’s not only fun, but will get your whole family moving, something we here in America could use more of. Age, strength and speed don’t matter in this game, as a mixture of luck, skill and strategy result in the champion team. + V:King offers an eco-friendly version of this fun game, made with northern hardwoods sourced from a local supplier to decrease transportation emmissions. The game is also paint, glue, chemical and toxic-stain free, plus comes in a sturdy cotton canvas storage bag printed with environmentally friendly, non-phthalate, non-PVC Plastisol ink. To avoid excess packaging V:King comes in a custom recycled cardboard box. Learn the rules of V:King and then set your sights on the crown.
