To play "Climate Change Dominoes: Adapt or Extinct?", players must relate animals from the Antarctic or the Arctic to adaptive and evolutionary aspects that allow these polar animals to survive in environments hostile to most species. The rules are similar to a traditional domino game; however, players are encouraged to delve deeper into the reflection on the consequences of climate change on the adaptation capacity of these organisms. Do they adapt or become extinct if global temperatures rise?
