If you love creative reuse, upcycling, and Pictionary, then you're going to love this game. Play Rethink is an "eco-design game" to help people people think—and rethink—how to make everyday objects and services more socially and environmentally friendly. How do you play? See a video of how it works below:

Spin the wheel. Get a card with a picture and short brief of the everyday item to repurpose (hanger, bike rack, chair, vacuum, etc), let the inspiration flow and then doodle your idea onto the card.

Each 'play rethink' board game contains:

  • 1 x multi-coloured wheel
  • 2 x cone templates to help you build your own cone
  • 98 x drawing cards
  • 1 x Eco-Strategies key card
  • 1 x instructions sheet with activities

You can share the ideas you came up with by becoming a rethinker and adding your sketches to their online photo gallery. Every month they feature a Project of the Month, too, wherein they highlight the best idea that's been uploaded from the game's users, and then they partner with different organizations to get that idea into production!

You can purchase the game at one of these two London stores, or buy it online for £24.95 (about $38) plus shipping.

We wanna play!
