'Publish or Perish' joins the realm of family board games, integrating both science and technology into the game without being too difficult for kids. The game aims to teach children about the scientific method and even particle colliders. By using an app for tablets along with the game, kids are more engaged and interested than they'd be with a regular cardboard box game of the past.

The app acts as a particle collider for a user's very own smartphone, smashing atoms together in order to finally discover the Higgs Boson. By running a timer during simple "experiments," kids get excited about finding the solutions fast. Even more unique, the goal of the game isn't to beat each other but teaches about collaboration by working together to win the Nobel Prize.
