Coming Soon: New Worker-Placement Game, Salton Sea

We are thrilled to announce the upcoming release of Salton Sea. This game is a tabletop challenge designed for 1-4 players, offering a unique and immersive gaming experience that combines strategy, resource management, and educational awareness.


The Salton Sea, a highly saline body of water in Southern California, is home to one of the largest brine reserves in the United States. Its characteristics make it a unique location to generate geothermal energy. In this area of intense geothermal activity, players will assume the role of a company that will drill and extract the steam and hot water to obtain lithium and other materials to sell, allowing them to lead the energy transition away from fossil fuels and toward a completely renewable future. 

The rulebook for Salton Sea includes a forward by geologist Marc Belzunces discussing how geothermal energy works, why it is important, and why the Salton Sea is such a valuable resource for producing geothermal energy.
