Diamond – The Game

Our partners at Diamond Light Source have created Diamond the Game Print and Play: a board game you can print at home, for 2-5 players that lasts between 20-30 minutes. It puts you and your family and friends directly in the role as a researcher at the Diamond Light Source, visiting different beamlines to make progress in a diverse range of scientific projects in Physics, Chemistry, Cultural Heritage, and more. As you travel around the synchrotron you will have to make the most of your experiments, as well as working with your fellow players, in order to be remembered as the most famous scientist.
