About

Habitat Match is an adaptation of the well-known game concentration, but with a little twist. Instead of a one-to-one match, there are multiple animal cards that can match with habitat cards. There are five habitat cards: Savannah, Ocean, Rainforest, Desert, and Arctic. Each animal card (e.g. Rattlesnake, Sea Turtle, Tiger, Musk Ox, etc.) must be matched with its natural habitat card. There are a total of twenty-five different animals cards, five animals per habitat. This game teaches players about the unique habitats that animals live in. The deck can also be used for other game variations such as Go Fish and Old Maid.

The inspiration for Habitat Match came from my volunteer work at an elementary school where I saw children learning about science but also playing games during breaks. Habitat Match is an educational game that teachers can incorporate into their science curriculum to help students understand some of the many fascinating habitats and the animals that live in them. That being said, Habitat Match is not just for kids, it can be for any age group. The great thing about card games is that there are many variations and no game is the same as before.

My goal with creating Habitat Match is to spark children to learn more about animals and their habitats. The more that they understand about our planet and the delicate balance that is needed to sustain habitats and the animals that live in them, the more aware they become about how animals are in danger. Deforestation and marine litter are only a couple problems that animals face today. Too often their habitats are being destroyed and used as trash cans. The more everyone that becomes aware of this, the more likely something can be done. I hope this game is not only fun, but provides an educational experience to inspire individuals to help preserve our habitats to make impactful changes. 

Risks and challenges

There are not a lot of risks or challenges to this project. We have already created the game concept and prototyped game play with a number of test users. We have also started art work, identified printing and production partners, and received quotes for production. The largest risk is ensuring the completion of the art work and the quality of the final product on time and within budget.
