Dr. Jennifer Hines wrote an article headlined “Players race to research the periodic table in an engaging new board game” about a new game that provides a fun way to celebrate science in an engaging, play-based format.

Hines is Professor of Chemistry & Biochemistry at Ohio University.

This year marks the 150th anniversary of Mendeleev’s publication on the periodic table. Periodic: A Game of the Elements provides a fun way to celebrate the science behind it in an engaging, play-based format.

Cheerful colors create an inviting game setup, and pieces shaped like microscopes, test tubes, and flasks playfully underline the science theme. The game board displays the periodic table (without the lanthanides and actinides) and is color coded by element group and classification type. Lively visual references to the tools chemists use and the elements that compose selected materials are incorporated throughout the game, and an accompanying booklet connects the game with the science and history of the periodic table.
