Automotive Conservation

Automotive Conservation is an interesting but far too simplistic computer board game designed to promote auto maintenance. Up to 4 players take turns rolling die and move their cars around the gameboard, paying fees to other players who own the dealer they stop at. Each player sets the fee he/she would like to charge other players, but there is not much strategic decision to make otherwise. You can choose whether or not to pay state fine whenever you get stopped with one, but it is more of a matter of how much money you have left than a complex decision. If you enjoy the likes of Monopoly, you might find this game entertaining for a few minutes, until the novelty wears off. It does teach kids basic facts on car maintenance and recycling, so if you have a teenager in your house who is starting to drive, introducing this little game to him or her is not a bad idea. File under “good inspiration, superficial execution” for this underdog.
