Global informs players about a vast and fascinating range of environmental problems facing Planet Earth. The game teaches financial investment decisions and presents a new and exciting way to manage money by prompting players to examine global and regional environmental issues. Global® offers a reverse business strategy to most games that deal with finance. While participants need no previous knowledge of ecological issues to play and change the future, becoming a skilled player is a challenging and rewarding endeavor.
Global ® encourages dialogue by requiring players to take a position on environmental issues. Some of the issues discussed in Global® are controversial, such as nuclear energy, use of genetically modified foods and processing tar sand for oil. These hot topics are ideal for discussion, allowing players to focus collectively on solutions.
The game's instructions are easy to learn from its website (www.globalthegame.com).
IN ADDITION TO APP, GAME BOARD IS REQUIRED IN ORDER TO PLAY GLOBAL.
1. 21 different countries to invest in, allowing players to change the future.
2. 37 News Flash cards that stir the emotions in a thought-provoking manner without propagating an end-of-the-world scenario.
3. 52 Conference cards which allow players to act as diplomats and confer on solutions to global environmental problems.
4. 2 Commodities exchange that involve speculating on futures markets. Investors speculate in emissions trading and future water contracts by a toss of the dice.

“Reduce reuse recycle.” Now that is one phrase I absolutely despise. Being a teenage girl living in an area where the environmentalist mentality is highly endorsed, I honestly feel like the best way to make me “love” the environment, is for people to just stop obsessing over it. Between school, camp, and TV shows, there is no end to the madness of the lengths gone to help “raise awareness”, and convince people to “go green.”
With all of that said, one could probably imagine why I was more than hesitant to play this game. However, once I began playing, I was incredibly surprised. I realized that this is not your average game made to “encourage” you to go green. In fact, it is not a game to influence you of anything. It is a game made to strengthen whatever views you may have and to guide you in explaining your views to someone else in a fun and intellectual manner. It is a game of fierce debates, thought-provoking news flashes, and intense conferences. This game tests your knowledge on commodities and teaches you how to make intelligent and sometimes even risky investments. Global consists all of these astonishing elements, in a simple, yet incredibly clever and entertaining fashion.
Finally, a few weeks ago, I received an iPhone. Quite honestly, I am addicted. My father is constantly scolding me to stop playing and return to my work. However, the fact that my phone is a key element to playing this game is simply liberating to both myself, and my father. Even though I have the most fun playing Global than I have playing many other games, Global is still an extremely satisfactory learning experience, and my father more than just approves. He too, loathes the term “go green”, so his acceptance of the game may be more than just the fact that I am learning. To him, the most important trait a person can have is to believe in himself, to stand firmly for what he knows is right, and to let everyone know why he believes it is so. Play the game. You will know why he loves it.
