    Gluons is a nuclear bluffing game for 2 to 4 players, ages 10+ and 15 minutes of gameplay.

    In Gluons we are nuclear physics researchers experimenting with the transmission of gluons between quarks. Gluons and quarks are elementary particles that make up matter, and each time a player experiences a valid interaction between quarks they receive 1 point. The winner is the one with the most points at the end of the game.

    This game celebrates the life and career of physicist Teresa Rodrigo Anoro (1956-2020), one of the most brilliant researchers in her field at an international level, and also the first Spaniard to join the European Particle Physics Laboratory (CERN).

    Extended explanation of gameplay:

    In Gluons, players will compete against each other to carry out valid interactions between the 3 quarks, using gluons. They do so by taking turns to play cards face down in the quark. Once all players don't want to play more cards, the resolution phase starts, and players then take turns to reveal one of their played card to check if the interaction is correct. If yes, they exchange the affected quarks, and keep the card as a point. At the end of the game, the player with the most valid interactions will be the winner.
