How to Play

Players build food chains of Arctic wildlife, and must strategize how to migrate species when their sea ice melts!

1. Connect predators to prey to build food chains

food chain

A food chain of 5 species cards. Icons on the bottom of each card show possible food sources. Sea ice cards form the base of the food chain.

2. Carbon pollution melts sea ice, which may disrupt food chains


Carbon pollution and other event cards disrupt ecosystems.  Experience the effects firsthand.

3. Animals must try to migrate a different food chain to survive


Migrate your animal to try to keep it alive.  For every animal that survives, you get 1 point.  The player who keeps the most animals alive wins!


“EcoChains is uniquely engaging in the way it builds an understanding of, and empathy for, the life webs of the Arctic that are unraveling with climate change.”  -Ken Eklund, Game Designer of FutureCoast and World Without Oil
