Regenerate! is a collaborative resource management game in which players navigate regenerative land stewardship, sustainable development, and systems design thinking.
Regenerate! is played over 20 rounds during which teams design and deploy projects that allow them to gain resources (Water, Energy, Food, and Capital) and score community points. All resources must be managed efficiently and community score is used to assess the team’s performance at the end of the game.
The goal is to maintain regenerative conditions at Fly Ranch as you develop the land, engage with community, and navigate unexpected events. This requires strategic Project design to maximize regeneration and minimize degeneration.
The team must also manage random events, which are revealed at the beginning of each round. As the game progresses, more event cards are revealed each round, and the positive or negative impact of events are intensified. This simulates the impact of climate change on community development and landscape conservation. Events can impact short-term and long-term strategy, so the team must be agile and robust, allowing them to adapt to the challenges of a changing climate.
Dream! Design! Deploy!

the team behind the game
Land Art Generator Initiative
The Land Art Generator brings forward solutions for sustainable infrastructures that are reflections of local culture and centered on communities.
By incorporating clean technologies as the media for creative expression, Land Art Generator projects are works of art in public space that contribute to climate solutions.
Land Art Generator consults with cities, planners, developers, and communities to co-design regenerative infrastructures that engage the public, beautify public places, and inspire a more rapid and equitable energy transition.
Fly Ranch Project
Black Rock City is the oldest and largest Burning Man gathering in the world. Each August, Black Rock City is briefly home to 70,000 people in northern Nevada gathering to celebrate Burning Man. The gathering has been built in roughly the same spot every year but one since 1990. In 1997, Black Rock City moved to Fly Ranch, a 3,800 acre property just north of the normal event site. For twenty years after that event, people imagined building a permanent home for Burning Man’s temporary community at Fly Ranch. In 2016, Burning Man Project—the non-profit that organizes the city—became the steward of Fly Ranch.
