Review for SeArCH
SeArCH is an engaging, creative and incredibly fun game that teaches you the elements of the periodic table. I love that the game is made for different levels--beginner, intermediate and professor. I also really love the different themed sets. This was an incredibly creative game, and I am very impressed by how fun and educational it was. I am definitely going to buy more sets of this game to hand out to young students, as it is a fantastic way for students to learn and get excited about science. The game itself is incredibly portable, very nice and high quality. It is easy to learn, challenging enough that you want to keep playing, and incredibly fun for all different knowledge levels. I am extremely impressed with this game and will definitely be using it as a learning and teaching tool and I will be bringing them to science outreach events! Can't wait to see more of the great games d-Orbitals comes up with.
Review for Slap Count
This is an incredibly well thought out game. Counting d-electrons and learning inorganic chemistry did not come easy for me as a college student, and still wasn't easy when I entered graduate school. I wish that I had had this game to help teach me in a fun and interactive way. This is a fantastic game that I think should be used in all inorganic classes. I was impressed with how fun and easy it was to learn, and how creative this game was. It is clear that a lot of thought and time was put into this game, which has made learning inorganic chemistry so much easier for students. Aesthetically, this game looks great and the vibrant colors drew my eyes to the game right away. I was a little nervous about testing my own inorganic knowledge, however, I love that you can play this game solo if you want to brush up before playing with others! I love how competitive this game can be and how fun it is with a group of people. These games are definitely going to make great gifts for all of my science friends, and great teaching/learning aids. I also plan to bring this to many of my volunteer events, where kids can get excited about science through games. I even plan to bring this home and play with my family! This is a great game!
Review for LINK
Link, like the other games made by d-Orbital games, is a fantastic learning tool. It is a creative way to help students and scientists learn the amino acids. Merging word building with science learning is a fantastic way to teach new concepts! The game is easy to learn, sufficiently challenging to make it fun, and appropriate for a wide range of levels. I found this to be a very fun way to learn the amino acids--and not forget them!
