Four to 6 players attempt to collaboratively build an ecovillage while simultaneously striving to reach individual carbon-neutral goals and to meet minimum infrastructure requirements. The game offers subtle learning features combined with competitive and cooperative game play.

Game cards drawn by players describe which construction tiles may be placed within the ecovillage design. With each turn, players must decide if their constructive efforts will benefit themselves, another player or a homeless person. The construction tiles also indicate which colored markers are collected by the players. Marker quantity and type determine the winners of the game.
