    Can you solve the drought? California Water Crisis is an educational game about California water politics. Take the role of one of California's three main regions (NorCal, SoCal, and the Central Valley) and try to find a solution to the fundamental cause of California's drought: there's more water demand than there's water.

    Based on extensive research on California water history and current conditions, California Water Crisis will expose you to real world challenges such as special interest groups, groundwater depletion, and population growth.

    Providing realism and replay value, the 3 regions have different starting resources, weaknesses, and potential strategies. This game takes about 10 minutes to learn and about 40-60 minutes to play. In addition to the main game, there are also two scenarios: one set in the late 1800s in the bad old days of reckless resource exploitation, and a cooperative scenario set in the mid 21st century.
