Peptide is strategy card game game, modeled accurately around the process of building a protein chain! Throughout the game, players compete to collect Amino Acids and the matching mRNA nucleotides, then link those amino acids side by side to increase the length of their protein chain and score points. Each round, a number of Organelle cards (such as nucleus, mitochondria or ribosome) are flipped face up in the center of the table for all players to see. Players take turns selecting Organelle cards that either (1) provide resources (like ATP from the Mitochondria or mRNA from the Nucleus) or (2) allow players to build onto their protein chain. As the game progresses, players will continue to add amino acids to their protein chain. The player with the protein chain worth the most points at the end of the game wins! Peptide is great for the science classroom or a game night with family and friends. Its fast paced, interactive, and encourages players to think strategically to optimize their protein strand while attempting to hinder opponents. All the concepts covered in Peptide are concepts that would be introduced in a basic high school level biology course. And it does so in a way that is fun and intuitive for everyone! Peptide was created by a professor of game design who is also a chemical engineer and science teacher!
