Pipe Dreams is an economic prosperity vs. environmental protection game that focuses on land use in agriculture.
One of the greatest dilemmas of modern times is the notion of Economic Prosperity vs. Environmental Protection. In many ways what’s good for the environment may not actually be good for the economy and vice versa. Pipe Dreams will teach players about some basic principles of agricultural land use. In this interactive game, players must decide how to effectively zone 10 separate areas in order to maximize environmental protection and economic prosperity. From the crops section, you can choose from potatoes or winter wheat. From the livestock section, you can select from the dairy cattle, beef cattle, or sheep. Finally, you can place some green, by zoning forestry or natural vegetation sections. The order in which you decide to zone the land will determine your ratings for the environment, food, and economic value.
