Lot's of people say "Do not judge a book by it's cover". Well... when it comes to Wrong chemistry such a phrase does not apply!

 


If you take a good look to the box, the initials of the game give off at once the really funny feeling, the players are gonna face once they start playing that really humourous game.

THEME

(W)rong (C)hemistry revolves around us, trying to create molecules of brand new, never heard before elements. Since, it is pretty sure that none of the players has ever tried that before, be sure that the created elements are gonna be so ridiculous that they're gonna be worthy of nothing more that being flushed away using the W.C. room.

COMPONENTS

 


As you can see at the picture above the game consists of 7 tiled, 5 cylindrical white and 4 circular black element particules. Furthermore there are lots of element cards and two research compounds the restartium and the extramovium.


GAMEPLAY

Once the game starts, every player draws 4 cards from the pile. Every card depicts of some really hilarius elements, parodies to those excisting at the periocal board. In front of the players there is the BASIC MOLECULE, the two research compounds, some extra element particles and last,but not least the card's pile.

During his turn a player can make 4 moves. The moves are either rearrangment of the excisting on the molecule particles or the addition extra particles or the subtraction of those already in the basic molecule. The target of the player is to create an element that is depicted in one of his cards at hand and once he manages it he makes sure to show the card and keep next to him, it as a proof of his newest creation.

Once those 4 moves are over, the player makes sure to draw cards from the pile enough to have 4 at hand and passes the turn to the next player.

Since everytime the molecule at the centre is all messed up the use of the two research compounds makes sure to balance wonderfully the game. Restartium brings the molecule to its basic form and extramovium gives you more available moves to complete your creations.

The game goes on until the pile of the cards is emptied.

Every element card worths some points. The hardest the creation of the element is, the more points the card worths. It comes without saying then, that the winner of the game is the one with the most points gathered to his element collection.
Well done mate, you are the worst of all those bad chemists around you


REPLAYABILITY

Well once the session I played was over I had the feeling of wanting to play more. My company had the same feeling too and all wanted more only to be disappointed by the fact that we were being kicked out of the place, where we had gathered, due to we-are-closing-the-place reasons


DUST PILING

In case I owned the game, it is sure that it would be really clean. The game is extremely hilarious, all those parodic elements make it so nice to play with friends at home and that is why the selves' dust doesn't suit it! It makes such a good party game and especially non-gamers are gonna love it!


CONCLUSION

The game is based on a very nice concept. Chemistry and molecule creation is something that you don't face everyday on a boardgame. Furthermore the elements being created are extremely hilarious and it is this taste of parody to the real chemistry that makes this game so interesting and renders it such a must-play by everybody!

Sooo plz publish this! I gotta play it again!!

haven't played the game yet,but by reading your review,it seems that it is an abstract game with a humorous theme...

note to designer:Tony,wouldn't it be nice if each player had a mad scientist as a character with abilities,and the elements you succesfully accomplished,would have a funny effect on your character,thus affecting your ability to further score points?that would diminish the abstract feel of the game and I think it would offermuch to the experience.Consider it please!

I think with all due respect Dimitris suggestion takes a lot out of the party game theme...
It would make things too complicated and tactical!

How long before we can get this? I know several gamers who'd be perfect to give this a try, including two Real Live Chemists.
