Dr Hal's Chemistry Trumps


Dr Hal's Chemistry Trumps is a trump-card game with thirty two chemical elements of the Periodic Table as the subject of the game. The game was designed and researched by 'Dr Hal' Sosabowski, Principal Lecturer in Chemistry at a well-known university and science consultant on ITV's Ministry of Mayhem, BBC's Bright Sparks and live chemistry evangelist, well known for his Bigger Bang! Show (see www.thebiggerbang.co.uk)

The game consists of 32 playing cards each with an element. The elements used are 1-20 plus 12 others from across the periodic table. Each playing card has a picture of the relevant element either in its native form or in some type of application.The trump factors are Atomic Mass, Danger Factor, Usefulness Factor, Melting Point and Year of Discovery. At the bottom of each card are some 'Elementary Facts', designed to give the player some insights into the element and provide takeaway knowledge. All the factors and the facts have been meticulously researched by Dr Hal and the research overseen by RGB Research Ltd. to ensure an excellent playing experience for participants, and the game is backed up by downloadable teacherís notes.

The element cards are: Hydrogen (H), Helium (He), Lithium (Li), Beryllium (Be), Boron (B), Carbon (C), Nitrogen (N), Oxygen (O), Fluorine (F), Neon (Ne), Sodium (Na), Magnesium (Mg), Aluminium (Al), Silicon (Si), Phosphorus (P), Sulphur (S), Chlorine (Cl), Argon (Ar), (Potassium (K), Calcium (Ca), Iron (Fe), Copper (Cu), Arsenic (As), Bromine (Br), Tin (Sn), Gold (Au), Mercury (Hg), Lead (Pb), Bismuth (Bi), Plutonium (Pu), Americium (Am), Fermium (Fm).

Teacher's/Learning notes are downloadable to accompany the game and reinforce the learning outcomes.
