Because doing science is fun, I have created a game! You are a fresh new PhD student entering the exciting world of Science! However, you are not the only one. There are others that are trying to steal your glory! Be the first to finish your PhD research and publish 4 papers before the other players. The first player with 4 papers wins the game!

What you need to play:

  • Scissors (not needed during the game)
  • Dice
  • Pion
  • 2-6 players
