Go Green, a family board game about gardening and self-sufficiency, is proving a hit with green-fingered people everywhere – including Prince Charles.
The game has also been given the thumbs up by TV’s self-sufficiency expert, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, as well as The Guardian newspaper.
The family board game sees players move wheelbarrows around the board collecting fruit, vegetables, pigs and chickens for their gardens and allotments.
The game has proved such a hit even Vegetarian Living has featured it, despite the resident chickens.
“This fun but educational game covers so many topical issues and teaches children about important roles and values that they may not come across on a day to day basis," said Thierry Bourret, director of Asobi.
"Hopefully it will encourage the next generation of green fingered gardeners and maybe even get them off Farmville for a while."
With stock available from May 2011, Asobi is expecting Go Green to fly from the shelves.
