Periodic: A Game of The Elements is a strategy board game designed around the periodic table of elements, as well as some of the most fundamental principles in chemistry that can be derived from the structure and function of the periodic table.
Players maneuver across the periodic table to collect elements to score Goal Cards, and land on element groups to score points. Players either pay energy to use multiple periodic trends to move across the table, or select just one trend and collect all the energy payed to that trend!
How to Play
Activate periodic trends!
Use the 5 periodic trends to move your flask across the board. Place energy on multiple trends to move your flask several times, or take all the energy on one trend, restocking your energy supply but limiting your flask to a single movement.
Land your flask on highlighted elements to claim them for points. Goal Cards like "Liquid at Room Temperature" and "Stainless Steel" dictate which elements are available for players to collect.
Research element groups!
By ending your turn in the right Element Group on the board (distinguished by color), move your marker up the Academic Track to score bonus points.
Play Time: 40-60 Minutes
