Taking Care of Business


This game package, Taking Care of Business, contains two games, A-topia® and starMaximiser® that both use a set of 32 cards and a concept of the chamsuite shown in the video animation below:




A-topia® exposes the players to an energy rating system of appliances similar to the one used in the European Union. It adds knowledge to the information one may need to look into prior to purchasing home appliances. The battle is set between two players to achieve a household with the least energy consumption.

There is a point scoring system in the game based on each player attaining special events. Once a maximum set of points are acquired by a player, it gives him/her an advantage by acquiring their opponent's best (energy efficient) appliances. The game keeps the players sharp in adding their scores and exercising their advantages over their opponent.

The game requires the 32 cards and manual with the rules, where the winner manages to acquire at least 5 appliances that have an energy rating of A in their chamsuite (a set of 8 cards which have all the different appliances represented, i.e. cooker, refrigerator, hot water tank, heater, washing machine, lights, computer and television).

Since A-topia requires simple strategies to win, it can be enjoyed by anyone from 9 years and older.

The video animation below shows in detail how to play A-topia®:




star maximiser 

starMaximiser® gives an appreciation of the energy rating system which closely resembles that used in Australasia and the Americas, enhancing one's knowledge in information that may need serious consideration when shopping for the most energy efficient household appliances.

The rules in starMaximiser® make it so hard for players to hang on to their best home appliances (i.e. those that are energy efficient). With a dice in the works and picking up cards in turn that have been shuffled, it means that you will need lots of luck to get to the finish line first.

The game requires the deck of 32 cards, a dice, the manual with the game rules, and a timer (not provided). The winner has more stars for their chamsuite (i.e. all the 8 appliances representing a household energy consumption).

This is a fun game once the rules are mastered and is suited to ages, 9 years and older.
