2-8 Players

20-30 Minutes

Lightweight Strategy

14+

Molecular is a quick, light strategy game for 2-8 players, where you play the role of a nefarious chemist trying to build a molecule for your research.

You’ll be competitively building the same molecule with your peers, attempting to carefully construct your target ‘functional groups’ (kind of like chemistry recipes).

You’ll take turns to either build up the molecule, spend time running tests on the molecule after you’ve constructed the right functional group or mixing things up by sabotaging an opponent or calling in a gang of caffeinated undergraduates.

Molecular was successfully funded on Kickstarter in late July 2015, read more here about our campaign!
