What is CO2: Second Chance about?

CO2: Second Chance is a strategic board game that puts you in charge of a company competing to reduce carbon emissions and make the world a better place. The goal is simple – be the most successful at reducing CO2 levels by building green power plants, investing in clean energy projects and managing resources efficiently.

How to Play

The game is played over five rounds, with each round representing a decade. Each player takes on the role of a CEO and has their own board to manage their company’s resources and track progress. 

What makes CO2: Second Chance unique is its innovative game mechanics. The game incorporates a mix of worker placement, resource management and area control elements, making each decision crucial to your success. You have to carefully plan your actions and anticipate the moves of your opponents in order to come out on top.

One of the most interesting mechanics is the greenhouse gas tracker, which keeps track of the global CO2 levels and affects gameplay. If the tracker reaches a critical level, all players lose the game – emphasizing the real-world urgency of addressing climate change.
