Game on climate change.
30th October 2018 – Research
- We created a group for our project inlcuding myself (Brandy Brant), Jamie Burton, Charlotte Turnock, Megan Sharkey and Simon Benedict-Flavell.
- We then researched different websites for ‘climate change’. –
- These sources are good as they have all the basic information explaining climate change.
- Disinformation – https://www.ecomena.org/climate-change/
- Global Politics – https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/ps-political-science-and-politics/article/the-global-politics-of-climate-change-challenge-for-political-science/58CFD111F52793A6B12C57691A1420B2
- We then researched ‘Paris agreement’. – The Paris Agreement (French: Accord de Paris) is an agreement within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) dealing with greenhouse gases emissions mitigation, adaptation and finance starting in the year 2020.

6th November 2018 – Prototype
- Our group made a paper prototype of the game ‘Mount Melt’.
- Made the counters (penguins) for the game.
- Each person in the group designed a chance card.
- Made the rules for the game.
- We also came up with the rules for our game.
8th November 2018 – Making the board
- Made the final design for the board and coloured it in.
- Made a prototype box for the ‘counters’, dice and the timer.
- Designed the rule booklet and the ‘this box contains’ booklet.
- Made a prototype of the box for the game.
13th November 2018 – Trello
- Made a Trello account and decided Simon was going to be the team leader of our group.
- There are three sections to our Trello game. On these lists it has information with everyone’s individual jobs to do on them.
- ‘to be done’
16th November 2018 – Twitter
- Made a twitter account to help promote the game.
- We will be posting updates on to this twitter account.
20th November 2018 – Poster for game box
- We all individually designed a poster for the game on Photoshop in our workshop, but this is the one I created.
- This poster is for the box of the game.
23rd November 2018 – SurveyMonkey
- As a group we created a survey for people to answer questions about board games. Here’s the link to our survey – https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/KC9BMTX
27th November 2018 – Results from SurveyMonkey
- From the results you can see that in the first question people might not play games once a week yet play once or more times a month.
- Secondly, from the results of our survey it clearly shows that most people play games with their family. This is good information for our board game as ours is family friendly.
- Question 2:
- The results also show that people like to spend up to £20 on a board game, this is something to take into consideration.
- The average time spent on a board game is 30 to 60 minutes. This is also good information as our game is 20-25 minutes long; meaning the game isn’t too long or too short.
- Question 9:
- The answers to question 9 are helpful as it shows different people’s opinions on a climate change game. This is good because it gives us an idea if people would want to play our game, being climate change based.
29th November 2018 – Box making
- Made the actual box for the game. and also made a mini box for the counters to go in.
