Product Description:

Practice building your own ionic compounds and make sense of chemistry. The goal of the game is to create neutrally charged compounds and sets of Noble gases; the player with the most points wins. The game is for 2 to 7 players and includes 9 Compound Goal Cards, 21 Action Tiles, and 94 Drafting Cards. Each player is given a set of three Action Tiles. Place four drafting cards and two Goal Cards face up in the center of the table, and deal eight drafting cards to each player. Each player chooses one card to reveal and bond to an ion (only cards with opposing charges can bond). Play can be affected by flipping Action Tiles - "select two' allows a player to select and play two drafting cards, "take from center' allows the player to take one of the Drafting Cards from the center, and "RXN' allows the player to rearrange their cards and take a card from another player. Game play is 20 to 30 minutes and expansion cards are included for those who want an even greater challenge. This game can help your chemistry students learn about ions and chemical bonding, or maybe they just love chemistry! ~ Donna

Scientifically accurate, easy to learn, and fun to play. I use it in my high school chemistry class to review Ionic Bonding and the kids really enjoy it.

Interactive and fun
The basic version of this game is great, but it comes with extension rules (included) that can make it challenging even for experienced chemists. I use it in my secondary Chemistry class to review ionic compounds and the kids greatly enjoy it. The seller was prompt and there were no issues in delivery or quality. Would recommend the game and the retailer.
