A world of energy uncertainty where you create the power that your continent needs.
A fun and empowering board game for 1-4 players age 7 and over that takes about 30 minutes.
Will fossil fuels continue to feed our thirst for power? Can nuclear plants solve our energy problems? Or will a balance of renewables be sufficient? You can work together with other continents or pursue your own ambitions for power.
We all need energy but what type to choose? There are wars fought over oil, Chernobyl and Fukushima nuclear power plant accidents, earthquakes induced by geothermal exploration, birds downed by wind turbines, solar and hydro plants taking over the landscape. You choose now.
Our species is naturally tribalistic. But we can choose to be altruistic or selfish, thoughtful or instinctive. Geopowr is a wildy addictive board game for friends and families to play out their personal approach to dealing with the growing energy insecurity and try to address one of the world's most pressing problems.
We are scientists, designers and teachers who care about the state of our planet and species. Our game is designed to be riot for families and friends to play. We also hope that people think about and discuss the options for power generation. We feel that a balanced supply of clean energy is needed and will benefit our health, environment and economy.

Geopowr is designed with textured 3D images to bring energy to life, and appeals to the senses through colour, shape and tactile feel without depending on any text. The energies are drawn in contrasting colours with icons to be easily recognized by anyone [...]
We started Geopowr with a basic premise - connect energy quadrants to build a diversity of power for continents and ideally benefit the world by working together. Hundreds of gameplays later, we have a prototype that balances strategy, tactics and chance, and offers cooperativity and intrigue [...]
Thinking about energy is not everyone's cup of tea, so we decided to create a fun game that you can play with your family, friends or class mates in about half an hour. You create all the power the world wants by playing nice or nasty, while discussing whatever you fancy [...]
