March is a month that seems to revolve around the color green. The weather is gradually getting warmer, and there’s a certain holiday where little green men are running around drinking Guinness while the Chicago River mysteriously turns green.
OK. I can work with that. Let’s look at some GREEN games!
Three monkeys have started a construction company, and the building blueprints are coming in quick! Now the monkeys have to work together to complete their blueprints before time runs out.
Look! Team 3: Green has the word green right in the title! That makes it a perfect fit for this list of green games. A monkey who can’t speak must convey building plans to a monkey who can’t hear. THAT monkey must then direct the monkey who can’t see to build what’s required. Crazy stuff. Crazy hilarious.
Orcs and Humans have never had a relationship. The borderlands between the two groups were regular sites of conflict, but an entire host of Orcish zombies have spilled forth. The Survivors of the zombie plague have a whole new set of problems to deal with if they want to continue breathing.
Yeah. As if zombies weren’t bad enough in a fantasy setting, Zombicide: Green Horde adds in zombie orcs! I’m sure there’s plenty of people after St. Patrick’s day that could be seen zombie orcs… Anywho, the best part about Green Horde is that it’s both a standalone game AND can be played together with Zombicide: Black Plague. You know. For science, you monster.
Happy Salmon is the simple, fast-paced card game packed to the gills with high-fivin’, fin-flappin’ fun. Actions including the classic “High 5”, the unifying “Pound It”, the frantic “Switcheroo”, and the delightful “Happy Salmon” will leave players doubled over in laughter. With so many mini-celebrations built into the play, it’s the happiest game ever!
There’s an old saying that has something to do with drinking and fish. Well, Happy Salmon is about fish … and it’s green! While it’s more of a family friendly game, I’m sure it’s a lot of fun after some fish drinking…or is it drinking like a fish. I forget. Don’t drink and fish, folks.
Fields of Green takes place in the second half of the 20th century. Players take the role of farm owners trying to expand their property and business
Am I grasping at straws here? There’s certainly straw involved in farming. Wait, this isn’t a list about straw, though. It’s about green games. Fields of Green certainly has a lot of that! Farming! Earth! Green! Nailed it. For fans of Among the Stars, this game is based on that. Among the Stars has nothing to do with green. Sorry.
There are five colors in the Magic game: white, blue, black, red, and green.
Did you really think you were going to get through a list of green games without seeing Magic: The Gathering? I mean, one of the 5 core colors of the game is green! It’s also the color with the BIGGEST, the BADDEST, and GREENEST monsters in the game! If you did…well…you’re expectations are set way too high.
