NZ made board games will be a family Kiwisaver

Press Release - For Immediate Release

Headline: NZ made board games will be a family Kiwisaver this winter.


Matt Taylor, designer of the board game BreakScore, says "NZ made board games will be a great family Kiwisaver this winter" and he urges the government and the Sustainability Council of New Zealand to encourage families to switch from electronic games to non-electronic forms of entertainment.


Living sustainably means living smarter and with the prospect of power cuts this winter, Matt Taylor, designer of the NZ board game BreakScore, believes concerned families can reduce their impact on the environment and save money on rising power bills by switching off their electronic games and playing NZ board games like BreakScore.

Taylor who believes that families who play games together, stay together says "Playing board games is a great way to make a positive difference for the planet, and is a step in the right direction for families seeking eco-friendly solutions to the way we live."

Taylor says "Buying NZ made board games does our economy and the atmosphere a favour. It promotes sustainability and reduces power bills as families learn they don't have to 'switch on' to have fun.

Taylor says visits to his web site has increased in recent weeks. This he attributes to widely expressed concerns about the rising cost of electricity and the need to reduce consumption this winter."
