Genotype: A Mendelian Genetics Game is a strategic board game set in St. Thomas' Abbey, where Gregor Mendel performed his paradigm-shifting experiments. Genotype is a worker placement and dice-drafting game where 1-5 players take the roles of research scientists competing to collect and validate experimental data on pea plants.

Players will spend time working on the monastery grounds, simulate plant breeding with dice and Punnett Squares, and use funding to further their research opportunities. Plan your research wisely, demonstrate your knowledge of genetics, and use the harvest schedule to your advantage to excel among your colleagues. Players collect experimental data on pea plants by observing how the plants inherit key traits from their parents: seed shape, flower color, pod color, and plant height. This game is best suited for people who are used to playing heavier games, and who want to add some science to their game night.

Ages: 14+ Players: 1 - 5 Time: 45 - 75 mins
