Political Art Board Game

Exodus is a playable simulation and board game puzzle about climate change. Players first place cards to form a series of islands by following simple rules. These islands represent the Maldives, and wooden blocks represent the populace. Over just 3 turns, each representing a decade, players are tasked with juggling the nation's resources and interests: managing the trade of yellow fin tuna without overfishing, dealing with local crises such as water shortages, building breakwaters to protect against ocean tides, relocating populaces while avoiding overcrowding – all the while maintaining political power.

Exodus was designed for The Maldives Exodus Caravan Show, curated by Søren Dahlgaard. Special thanks to Amani Naseem and Eskil Dahlgaard.
