REACT - The Organic chemistry Game


Grab your lab coat and jump into REACT! - the world's first and only chemically accurate organic chemistry board game! This new multiplayer board game can teach anyone organic chemistry. Build your deck of chemical cards from an array of reagents and combine them to conduct reactions. Be the first to invent a multi-step process that uses reactions to build the goal molecule on your lab bench. But, watch out for rival scientists, who might steal your cards and contaminate your experiments! With REACT!, there's never a dull moment; it makes learning organic chemistry exciting and fun!

REACT! hopes to make organic chemistry less daunting and more enjoyable for students across the globe. Created by students at UC Berkeley and Yale, REACT! teaches university-level organic chemistry in a manner that is understandable and fun. The game’s flexible learning method makes it a great fit for board game enthusiasts and students in high school, university and beyond.
