This inventive Cytosis board game is all about biology, specifically the cellular spectrum. The entire game takes place inside a human cell and tasks players with building enzymes, hormones and receptors. There are also harmful viruses that players have to build up resistance to and fend off.
Despite of its scientific subject matter, the Cytosis board game can be played by anyone age 10 and older. The project is fully funded on Kickstarter with time and cash to spare; it's almost $100,000 over its goal with 22 days left. This game's success could potentially pave the way for other tabletop games that mix science with fun. Indie game designers seem to have that niche filled, but it may only be a matter of time before a larger company looking for fresh ideas tries to replicate the success of the Cytosis board game.
