When it comes to sustainability, we think inside the box...
While the box might look small, it can fit the same components as other games with boxes twice the size (by volume)! This makes a tremendous difference in the shipping impact and cost, while making the game ultra-portable and saving your shelf space.

A paperless rulebook...
In order to save trees and unnecessary packaging, the rulebook for Solutions. is fully digital. Simply scan the QR code in the box to access it!
This has many added benefits, including that everyone can read the rules at the same time and the rules can be “patched” with gameplay improvements, like software.
To further minimize waste, we ask you to provide common items: a stopwatch (your smartphone is fine) and a pencil and paper to draw on.
All of our game components are made of wood: cardstock, cardboard, and a few wood cubes.
We avoid plastic packaging inside the game. The only plastic is the shrink-wrap to keep your game safe during transportation.
Despite our best efforts to design this game in as sustainable a way as possible, no mass-produced product can yet claim to have no impact without a little bit of help. That’s why we’re partnering with Cooler to neutralize our remaining impact.
Cooler calculates the carbon footprint of every board game we print, including manufacturing, packaging, transportation, and even the air conditioning and lighting of the retail store. They then charge us based on the footprint, and use the money to buy emission permits away from tightly-regulated carbon markets in the U.S. There are only a certain number of permits available, and once Cooler buys up those permits, polluters have to find more sustainable ways to operate, stopping pollution at its source. This is a much more rigorous approach than carbon offsets, since offsets allow polluters to continue business as usual.
