Official release of Gut Check: The Microbiome Game “print-at-home” edition

card_groupJust a quick note to say that the final version of “Gut Check: The Microbiome” Game has been released here on microBEnet.  Here’s the summary from the website:

Gut Check is a game for 2-4 players where each player attempts to develop a healthy microbiome while interfering with the microbiomes of their opponents.   Give your friends the plague, botulism and more!  Go to work sick to get rid of a pathogen, take some probiotics, or have some lasagna (if you can digest it).   The game takes 30-60 minutes to play, depending on experience and number of players.

This version is free to all under a CC-by license.   A commercially printed version is in the works, check back on the website for more information.
