We all agree that there is far to much single use plastic in our world at the minute and the hot new topic at the minute is how to reduce the amount of it we actually use in our day to day lives. My house has done its part, we no longer use plastic straws, have our own reusable bottles for drinks and now when the children have their lunched at school I wrap their lunches up in paper rather than plastic wrap.
Nudge is a strategy game that is made up entirely of earth friendly pieces, which is what attracted me to it in the first place, while it isn’t designed for children in mind I like the idea of adding something as wonderful as an environmentally friendly game to our tabletop collection.
Designed by Dan Bramham the game itself comes in a cardboard box which contains One game board, Six bioplastic discs and on the back the game rules are written, I have the two player version which I have enjoyed with friends when they pop round for some drinks on the occasional weekend.
The rules themselves a pretty easy to follow once you get the hang of it and it has been played with lots of laughs as we each take turns in ‘nudging’ each other discs and if you find it a little hard to follow there is some tutorial guides on their website which show you how the game is meant to be played, I will admit that I did watch a few videos before I got the hang of it, but once its understood its a fun little addictive game that I am glad that I got the opportunity to play.
I adore that its friendly to our world, currently I am fazing out the children plastic toys in favour of more wooden ones and this just adds to my new enjoyment of earth friendly games and toys.
Nudge is available for £9.99 and 1% of game sales go towards the woodland trust seeing as the game itself is made from trees!
I highly recommend you give it a go and add this wonderful and earth friendly game to your table top collection.
