We present a cooperative family board 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. The premise of the game is that your home is being attacked by a menagerie of energy monsters, each personifying a different form of waste.The monsters start out weak but quickly grow stronger as they feast on your excess electricity usage. The energy heroes must band together and expel the monsters before it’s too late.
