A highly successful Kickstarter campaign for a Tesla vs Edison engineering game has well surpassed it's goal ahead of completion. The board game is described by its creators as "the war of currents," in which 2 to 5 players compete by building innovative electricity routes, growing tech trees and play the stock market in a timed fashion.
Each player selects an inventor and comes up with a company which they then must lead, grow and innovate around.
The Tesla vs Edison game is an innovative game that will delight adult science and engineering fans and entice eager children to pursue engineering in post-secondary education and as a career. In particular, the fun game could do a lot to encourage young girls to take interest in the male-dominated field.
