Mad Science Foundation

A strategy card game where players take on the roles of mad scientists competing for grants to build the most sinister inventions and earn the most infamy! Created by Sharang Biswas and Max Seidman.

Throughout the centuries, mad scientists have always encountered the same problem of very limited access to the dangerous resources they require. To solve this problem, the Mad Science Foundation was created. Now these "misunderstood geniuses" can finally get the access they need to the four vital building blocks of mad science-Lasers, Dark Matter, Cryptonium, and Sharks- and use them to create nefarious inventions in order to become the most infamous mad scientists the world has ever seen!
At heart, 'Mad Science Foundation' is a drafting game. You draft resources to craft wacky inventions and dispatch minions to help with your diabolical plans. However, 'Mad Science Foundation', uses an 'I-cut-you choose' mechanic, where one player divides available resources into piles for every player, but then is only allowed last pick of  the piles. Players will have to play tactically and predict their opponents'  moves in order to get the resources they need and pursue one of the many strategies to victory.
