Green Your Summer Nights: Board Games

Environmental games The breeze is cool, the air sweet, and loved ones surround you. This week, we bring you suggestions for how to enjoy each other's company in these lighter-later hours between dusk and bedtime.

Tip #1: Play Green

A little competition, a little strategy, and a seat on the ground: Some board games, like Monopoly's National Parks Edition, which donates part of its proceeds to the National Park Foundation, take your game-playing to the inspirational outdoors. It costs $90 on Amazon, so consider buying it used for better value. Bioviva, an eco-knowledge trivia game, has won 13 awards and is made from recycled materials. As is Earthopoly, a game of carbon-credit-trading strategy.

Tell us: What are your favorite eco-games?
