Game of Floods



Concepts are easier to grasp when they’re presented in a playful way, which is exactly what County of Marin staffers were going for when they created a game to get residents thinking critically about sea level rise. Game of Floods is a small group activity, where four to six players are asked to develop Marin Island 2050, a dystopian future landscape that is riddled with deteriorating homes, community facilities, roads and more that were all ravaged by storms. The game was inspired by a local mapping activity developed for Supervisor Kate Sears’ southern Marin sea level rise project by Department of Public Works engineer Roger Leventhal and CMG landscape architects. It was originally introduced in May 2015, early in the project planning process, to educate citizens. The game board, game pieces, instructions and other supporting materials were designed by the Community Development Agency (CDA) and Department of Public Works (DPW) staff and are available online. Let the games begin. marinslr.org
