Chemistry: The Gathering April 9, 2008

Posted by davegoblog in Gaming, Science.

Combine chemistry with Magic: The Gathering, and you get Elementeo, a collectible card game that aims to teach chemistry to students in a fun, unusual way.  Anshul Samar, the 14-year-old CEO of Alchemist Empire, Inc., was scheduled to speak yesterday at the 235th American Chemical Society National Meeting in New Orleans.  He hopes to secure $500,000 in funding so his Silicon Valley-based startup can begin mass producing the game.

You are not a geek or a nerd if you like chemistry,” says Samar. “If people do end up calling you a geek because you love chemistry, don’t worry, those people are going to end up working for you at the end!”

You can pre-order a copy of the game here.  Game on!
