Chemical Spill is a chemistry based drafting card game.
How to play:
Chemicals are spilled and each player gets 10 cards each. They are allowed to 'cleanup' one card before the rest are washed to the next player for the next round. Each round players select one card from the cards passed to them and continue to pass until all cards are chosen.
Players use the elements they have chosen to create molecules. Different molecules score different amounts of points (as seen on the scoring cards). Any elements that have not been made into molecules cost you points!
One round is all that is needed to learn how to play, once the first round has been completed people will be begging to play more.
What is in the Deck?
The deck contains 100 cards. 80 playing cards, 4 rules cards and 16 score keeping cards.
What does this teach you?
- How Covalent Bonds are formed and how many bonds each element can form
- Functional groups of organic molecules - How to calculate protons neutrons and electrons - Atomic numbers and Mass numbers - Lewis Dot structures - Electron Sub-shell Configurations
BONUS GAMEPLAY STYLE: Staff room - Texas hold 'em chemical spill
Each player gets five cards.
Five more are placed down in the style of texas hold 'em poker. Rounds of betting on who believes they have the best hand takes place as each card is revealed.
At the end of the betting each player left must state their highest number of points. Person with the highest number of points wins and collects the pot!
The History of Chemisode:
Chemisode resources are create by Jason Goudie and aim to provide help to young people who are trying to learn chemistry.
2008: Jason graduates teaching college and sets off to teach young people everywhere about the wonders of Chemistry.
2009: He heads to England and teaches at the GCSE level for a year and half.
2010: He moves to Italy where he is employed as the sole science teacher at an International school in Milan.
2011: Jason leaves the land of amazing coffee and pizza to settle down in country victoria. He gains employment teaching Chemistry and a small catholic school and starts developing online tutorials for his class.
2012: The school he teaches in adopts 1:1 iPads and he has a great idea of combining his video tutorials with hundreds of flashcards in a series of iphone/ipad apps. Chemisode 1,2 and 3 are launched along with an app devoted to the joys of the periodic table.
2015: After 200,000 youtube video and 100,000 app downloads Jason starts looking for new and inventive ways of teaching his classes about organic molecules, lewis dot structures, electron subshells and covalent bonding and he comes up with the idea of a drafting card game: thus Chemical Spill was born.

Risks and challenges
As with any project there are risks involved, however prototype cards have been created and if you watch the video: what you see if what you get.
I have a history of delivering quality chemistry resources. This is the only project that i am working on at the moment and as such it has my utmost attention! So rest assured I am confident of delivering this project in the timeframe stated!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
