It's hard to think of a more fun way to learn about elements than with the Elemensus: Periodic Table Spelling Game. That's right, the folks over at ThinkGeek have managed to create a board game to help you memorize the elements that make up our world. The game works a lot like Scrabble in that you must spell words using the tiles you're given.

However, unlike Scrabble, the tiles you're given correspond to elements, not just letters in the alphabet. The tiles also have an alternate side, referred to as dark matter. The dark matter side offers single letters as opposed to the multi-letter period table tiles. Players score points via the amount of atomic weight each word has. Using dark matter tiles negatively effects your score (they don't have atomic weights, after all). Elemensus: Periodic Table Spelling Game sells for $39.99 and is available now.
