Carnival Games

Step right up and add some fun and engagement to your climate event with MassEnergize’s Climate
Carnival! The games suit all skill levels and draw in kids of all ages while prompting climate questions and discussions. The games pack down to fit in most cars (approx. 36”W, 55”L, 28”H) and setup in minutes.

Suitable for indoor or outdoor use they can be used either free standing or set up on table tops. Each game is hand built from 100% reclaimed wood using renewable energy. Most of the games can be played with 2-4 players per round, promoting teamwork, cooperation and laughs. We’re asking for a $100.00 donation per rental for the whole set or $20.00 per game.

We want the games to see hundreds of events and ask that they are handled carefully. Set up, gameplay and packing instructions for each game are available through an included QR code as well as linked below.
