Tipping Point is a family-friendly card game that playfully demonstrates the dangers of global warming. The players build cities that are home to the ever-growing population. However, the accumulation of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is leading to ever more extreme weather disasters and forces players to think creatively how to face this shared problem.
The goal of the game is to grow, sustain and protect a large population. However, the weather can be a real challenge. It can’t be controlled, but the more CO2 in the atmosphere the higher the likelihood of severe weather. Prepare yourself with the right buildings, don't get caught in a forest fire without a fire station!
One of the best parts of Tipping Point is that players can use their imaginations to build the type of city they want. There are dozens of different development cards to choose from, including oil wells which earn more money, hospitals which protect citizens from extreme weather, or power plants which are needed to power buildings. But this growth and development comes at a cost: the release of greenhouse gases, like carbon dioxide (CO2).
The end of the game is triggered when 1 player reaches a population of at least 10 citizens. Since Tipping Point also has a semi-cooperative mode, it is possible (but quite challenging) for all players to win.
