German science magazine, GEOlino wanted it’s young readers to learn about the effects of global warming in a child-oriented way, and so they came up with Meltdown. The first board game that uses real ice.

With the aim of rescuing a polar bear family from the permanent ice floes to safety on the mainland, it’s a race against time as the ice melts. The Arctic is made up of blue sponge and is used as the game board, absorbing the melted ice at the same time.

What a brilliant idea.
