The SDG Dice Game

When measuring how countries around the world are performing on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Sweden and our neighboring Nordic countries usually come out as top performers. However, we still have major challenges before we can claim fulfillment of our commitments promised in the Agenda 2030.

First of all, no one can achieve the Global Goals on their own. No matter how well Sweden and the Nordic countries perform the Sustainable Development Goals demand that all countries perform well. That’s why the SDG Dice Game is best played with a friend (new or old it doesn’t matter!). Second, the Global Goals that Sweden has the worst performance in are serious; achieving them will be challenging to say the least!

In this game you will get to know and learn about the six SDGs which Sweden has the worst performance in. The selection is based on the results published in Sustainable Development Report 2019 by the Sustainable Development solutions Network. To monitor the performance on the SDGs the UN General Assembly have adopted 232 indicators for the Global Goals. The indicators are measurable and in the report each indicator has been rated on a four grade scale from Major Challenges to SDG Achieved.

Preparations

This is a dice and quiz game; the rules are easy to follow and it´s best played with 2-6 players. The goal of the game is to learn why Sweden has a low performance score on the six SDGs represented on the SDG-Dice and to score more points than your opponents. Before you start you have to prepare by assembling the SDG Dice, keep the Playing Cards (presented in a list further down) at hand throughout the game, and read the instructions in full.

The Playing Cards are to be hidden for all players and may only be revealed as explained by the rules. However, the first Playing Card named: Test Area – SDG 18: Free Dice Games for All – Press to see Indicators and Ratings is a demonstration card. All players can look at the demonstration card before the game starts to familiarize yourselves with the Playing Cards. Keep in mind that all Playing Cards contain a different number of Indicators and their Ratings vary, no card is exactly like the other.

How it´s played

You start of by choosing the first dice-roller. The person with the largest ecological footprint goes first (if you haven’t calculated your ecological footprint recently you can go by the size of your regular footprint). (1) The first person rolls the dice, (2) the second person looks at the Playing Card corresponding with the SDG shown on the dice and reads out loud the Indicators (do not reveal the ratings!), (3) the dice-roller has to guess the Rating for each Indicator and earn points. After the dice-roller has guessed on all Indicators (4) the dice goes over to the person on the right of the dice-roller and the now previous dice-roller will read the Playing Card for the new dice-roller. Keep rotating like this until the game is finished.

The game is finished when all six SDGs have been rolled. If the same SDG is rolled more than once the dice-roller has to end the round and pass on the dice to the next player, loosing the chance to earn points. When all the SDGs have been rolled you summarize your points and celebrate the winner!

  1. The first person rolls the dice.
  2. The second person reads the Indicators on the correct Playing Card.
  3. The dice-roller has to guess the Rating for each Indicator.
  4. The dice goes over to the person on the right of the dice-roller.

Earning points

You earn points by naming the correct Rating for the given Indicator. Each Indicator has a Rating on a four grade scale, each grade represented by a color: Achieved (Green), Challanges remain (Yellow), Significant challanges (Orange) and Major challanges (Red). Naming the correct Rating for Green, Yellow, and Orange will earn you one point for each correct answer (1P) and zero points for an incorrect answer (0P). Naming the correct answer for indicators rated Red will give you three points (3P), however an incorrect answer will give you minus three points (-3P).

Green, Yellow and Orange = 1P/0P
Red = 3P/-3P

After you have summarized the points and celebrated the winner, summarize the group effort by adding all players scores and divide it by the number of players and see what rating you get:

Red (-24P-0P): You have major knowledge gaps
Orange (1P-25P): You have significant knowledge gaps
Yellow (26P-50P): Some knowledge gaps remain
Green (51P-57P): You are ready to take on the remaining 11 Sustainable Development Goals and 190 indicators!
