Description

The Nexus of Energy, Climate, and Water

In this game, players develop arguments, challenge others’ ideas, and try to persuade a judge that they have the best argument. The cards provide easy-to-read facts for any level player to construct an argument around one of the nexus topics. Challenge and Persuade is a fun and social card game that challenges players to think about the choices we have in balancing our need for water and energy with the challenge of minimizing climate change.

1 review for Challenge and Persuade

  1. RJ Montano

    Challenge and Persuade engages students into thinking about the dynamics of their environment as it pertains to energy and water – but also hones their speaking and debating skills. While this games is great for students already engaged with sustainability initiatives, students who are less environmentally inclined find it a bit challenging. Some would have preferred to have a list on the Persuade cards as to which Challenges it might match up with best. And judges found it difficult to determine a “winner” because they found all the arguments to be persuasive and convincing. However, there’s no doubt the game provoked a lot of interesting dialogue and created a basis for starting conversations about the climate that went beyond the arguments detailed on the cards.

    I would highly recommend the NEXUS games to formal and informal educators alike. If I had one small “complaint” about the game, it would be to design a stronger container. After just a few rounds of use, the boxes are already showing signs of wear and tear! Otherwise, I sincerely hope plans are in the works for creating a 2.0 version that builds on the excellent foundation this activity provides.
