Customer Reviews

This game is less fun than it soundsThis game is less fun than it sounds. I thought there would be a wider variety of elements to make up different molecules and I thought they would be kid-focused molecules like NACL, H20, H2SO4 and the ones which we memorized in high school. Instead most of these are in the ethyl and methyl groups and we had to keep wikipedia open to learn about each molecule because none of that information was included on the cards. In all honesty, this game needs Covalence2 where more elements and molecules are introduced, explanations of the molecules are made more fun. 3... this game a couple of times and I really like it. My husband and I own and play ...I've played this game a couple of times and I really like it. My husband and I own and play a lot of hobby board games but this game really fits a lot of situations. It would make a great filler or a good game to play with family or friends who aren't into hobby gaming. There is also a built in expansion to add a bit more to the game once you've played it a few times. We played it 2 player and it was a little flat but I think more players makes it more interesting.I also love this series of games focused on science. This is definitely an educational game that doesn't feel like one. It is a drafting game similar to games like Sushi Go! or Fairy Tale where you are drafting cards over several rounds. You don't need to know anything about chemistry to be able to play, but it does make it fun to know what compounds you are building.The components in this game are decent quality. It is mainly cards with a few cardboard tokens. The aesthetics of the game are great. I would recommend this game to anyone who is looking for a lighter game that plays in around 30 minutes and has an interest in science. 5Good Cooperative GameFun family game. I like that it is a cooperative effort rather than playing against each other. You don't have to know chemistry. One suggestion for the game maker- put the Level rules on a card that the players can have in front of them during the game. I mean the rules about Easy level molecules will only be CCC, or CCN or CCO, and Hard level molecules will be... whatever the rules are - I cannot remember. But it is essential information that they keep buried in the middle of the instruction book - not in plain view to the players. That's my only suggestion. It is a good game of problem solving as a group, and you can choose what level of difficulty to play. Thumbs up. 4Great simple drafting game that can be played with casual ...Great simple drafting game that can be played with casual gamers and older kids alike. The theme is fun with touches of educational value, but you also don't have to be a science pro to play the game. We had fun playing with our nephew who loves science and enjoyed recognizing the elements and how different ones could bond together, while I (the science challenged) still enjoyed the drafting challenge of the game. Highly recommend for a fun, quick play! 5A fun game and a fantastic teaching tool!I played this game with 2 high school science teachers and another adult who claimed no knowledge of chemistry. The science teachers absolutely loved it. One is very excited about using it in her 9th-grade physical science class and even plans to order another copy for that purpose. We played the base game only, but the science teachers expect the polyatomic ion and transitional metals expansions to be very useful in the classroom. Gameplay was simple from my perspective, and the one player with no scientific background caught on after a couple of rounds. The only negative point that was brought up was that the science teachers believed the rules would have been complicated if they were left to read them on their own rather than being taught by an experienced gamer. I expect that the publisher's online "how to play" video would be a big help there. 5The inclusion of "ions" feels like an afterthoughtA very simplistic drafting game. The inclusion of "ions" feels like an afterthought. I had been hoping for a fun chemistry game, but this isn't it. It's not even terribly educational; the charges are correct, but the cards lack any other basic information about the atoms or compounds, such as atomic number, mass, etc. A missed opportunity. 2Fun Chemisty Card Game for the whole family!At first we felt a bit intimidated by the game after reading over the instructions. However after watching an instructional video from Genius Games on YouTube, we were easily able to play. It is a drafting card game played much like Sushi Go but with the goal of combining positive and negative ions to form compounds. Even my 6 year old enjoys the game and asks to play! Perfect addition to our high school homeschool chemistry curriculum and for our younger child to learn as well. Highly recommend! 5LOVE this game!As a game it s got some really fun strategy and is still pretty quick and light! It s sort of like a worker placement style, but no actual workers - you take available cards instead. It didn t take too long to figure out either - especially if you re familiar with card games.But the best part about this game is that it s incredibly accurate to the process of how proteins are made. Wish they had this game in Biology class because that class would have made a lot more sense!!! I also think it's GREAT that the organelle cards have NO icons on them, just the organelle art and name. I love this because in only 5 mins, you ve remembered the main function of each organelle in the process. And there's a great player-aid card anyway in case you are having trouble remembering.HIGHLY recommend this game for gamers who want to geek out on a game with an accurate science themes, for teacher to use in a biology class, or family game nights! 5Impressed with Genius GamesWe are a geeky family, but we are not heavy gamers. We do enjoy family games and other not overly heavy board games. We also homeschool our children. I say this to give you a little context for this review.I am a sucker for cooperative games. So I decided Covalence would be a great fit for our family. I wasn't wrong. The instructions could use a little tweaking to make them more clear. But overall this isn't a super complicated game. It has a fun logic game feel to it. While the theme is very educational, I think the game is fun and the learning is a bit sneaky (meaning kids and adults will learn without even realizing because they are having fun.) The quality is also nice.In short, we will be adding many more Genius games to our collection. 5Card drafting game that teaches biologyIt's basically the RNA translation process of biology/genetics, with card drafting and a points system. Players will learn real biology. The strategy is complex enough that there are different strategies to victory available. Plays acceptably with 2 players, but 3 or more is ideal. 5
