Periodic: a game of the elements is a strategy board game designed around the structure and function of the periodic table of elements, as well as some of the most fundamental principles in Chemistry!
In Periodic, you activate Periodic trends (such as `decrease atomic mass` or increase atomic radii) to strategically maneuver across the Periodic table, discovering elements in order to score points gain awards (which allow you to take more powerful turns in future). you must also couple discovering elements with ending your turns in specific families of elements, like noble gases or transition metals. This allows you to move up the academic Achievement track in a race against other players for the limited spots, and additional points, at the end of the track.
The game ends when someone completes the research track or when a stack of goal cards is depleted. The player with the most victory points at the end of the game wins!
