Genotype Board Game Up On Kickstarter

We were on a can of peas, a big dish of peas when I said, "in July."

Well, before Orson can sell them to you, you need to grow the peas. And, of course, nobody knew more about peas than Gregor Mendel. In Genotype, players take on the role of scientists working to create the perfect pea plant. Your time is precious and you have several duties to take care of. Work your best and you'll come out on top. The game is up on Kickstarter now.

From the campaign:

Genotype: A Mendelian Genetics Game is a worker placement, dice-drafting game set in St. Thomas' Abbey, where Gregor Mendel performed his paradigm-shifting experiments. 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. 

The campaign's more than 4x funded with 27 days to go.
