A Few Degrees of Warming
A downloadable game
A Few Degrees of Warming is a role playing game about a familiar city radically altered by climate change. Players will narrate the events of a coastal city as it struggles to overcome the many challenges presented by global warming. You’ll work together to draw a map of the city and redraw it as it changes due to warmer temperatures, a rising sea level, and dwindling resources. You will also name important people and play out scenes that occur as choices need to be made about the city’s future.
Will you be able to protect people from the worse effects of climate change? What will this city look like after a few degrees of warming? This game encourages you to consider these questions, and to play to find out what happens.
