Hello intrepid backers!

We'll be exhibiting Covalence (and Ion) at the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) conferences in Minneapolis (Oct. 27–29, 2016) Portland (10–12, 2016), and Columbus (Dec. 1–3, 2016).    

If you're nearby and would be interested in helping us exhibit at a conference, we'll get you a badge to enter the convention for FREE, suit you up with a snazzy Genius Games T-shirt, and spend the first evening playing through our games with you! Shoot us an email at!

50% discount on Covalence via Amazon  

To bolster Covalence credibility specifically on Amazon, we need to get some reviews up from Amazon purchasers! We'll give you 50% off the MSRP if you'll purchase Covalence via Amazon and post an honest rating and comment on Amazon within a week of receiving your game. Email team@gotgeniusgames for the Amazon discount code!

Science Wide Open now LIVE on Kickstarter!

The inquisitive star of the Science Wide Open series!

Science Wide Open is a series of science books for kids that not only introduces kids to basics in Chemistry, Biology and Physics, but also tells the true stories of incredible women scientists and their discoveries that shaped the scientific world.  

We launched on Oct 4th and have already surpassed 650% of our funding goal!

 a spread from Women In Biology of revolutionary cancer researcher, Jane C. Wright

Kids learn by asking questions, so we decided to use questions to guide the narrative in this series. Even before your kids are old enough to play a game you can introduce them to ideas like "What is a cell?", "Why do things fall down?" and "What is an atom?" :-) 

Anyway, please check out our Science Wide Open Kickstarter and consider backing!

Overflowing with Appreciation,
