It's elemental!

In school, we loved it when teachers gave us the project where we could design a board game that showed off what we learned in class that semester. It gave us the chance to flex our game design skills, writing skills, and of course let our artsy friend show off. Unfortunately, our board games never made it to the light of publication, so we're glad that someone else stepped up the plate!

Periodic Quest is a family and educational card/board game based on Periodic Table of Elements. It offers a unique way of introducing students to the world of chemistry through the fun of games. Suitable for classrooms, homeschooling, and family game night, Periodic Quest can be played by everyone, no matter what their level of chemistry knowledge.

Here are some of the games you can play:

Atomic Number Card Game Each player adds one card from the shuffled deck to his/here collection and places a card on the table from the collection. At the end of each round, the player who played the card with the highest value that matches the starting card type wins the round. The game continues until all the cards in the deck are played. The player with the highest sum of card value wins the game. For 4 to 8 players. No prior chemistry knowledge required.

Compound Formula Card Game Each player adds one card from the shuffled deck to his/her collection and places a card on the table from the collection. If some or all cards on the table can be used to recreate formula of a chemical compound, the player claims those cards. The game continues until all the cards in the deck are played. The player with the highest sum of the cards value wins the game. For 4 to 8 players. Basic chemistry knowledge is required.

Atomic Shell Card Game Each player adds one card from the shuffled deck to his/her collection and place a card on the table from the collection. If the sum of electrons in the outer shells of the cards satisfies some pre-defined conditions, the player claims those cards. The game continues until all the cards in the deck are played. The player with the highest sum of card value wins the game. For 4 to 8 players.

Other games are listed in the rules booklet, or you can make up your own!
