Gasuco stands for ”Gaming in Sustainability through Communication” and Gasuco Zero is played in only 40 minutes making it suitable for a workshop, a lecture or just a fire starter in discussions about sustainability.
Players start with three cards on hand and discard them by finding cards on the table in matching colors. Through the cards the players answer questions and discuss sustainability issues together. But be aware, if other players are looking for the same colors the cards can be stolen!
For those who enjoy card games as well as learning games Gasuco Zero is a whole new experience. A good memory doesn’t hurt when wild cards quickly can change the conditions of the game.
Contains 40 multiple choice questions, 20 discussions, wild cards, answer cards and rule cards. Made of FSC-approved materials.
It is currently the only game Gasuco has available in English and it is ideal for high school, college and universities.
