Abstract

We present a cooperative tabletop game called Invasion of the Energy Monsters designed to encourage entire families to reflect on how to use energy at home and to think about implications for global environmental sustainability. After briefly reviewing related work, we outline our design principles, describe our game, and share preliminary findings from playtesting sessions with families in their homes.
