    I’ve really enjoyed the cooperative board game Pandemic, where players work together to cure and eradicate four diseases across the globe. Each player is a character with special abilities, including a scientist (who can cure a disease with 4 cards instead of 5) and a researcher (who has advantages in sharing information among players).

    I like the game Compounded by Dice Hate Me. It’s a fun game in which you try to build up compounds with the random elements you’ve drawn. It’s available at your local game store or online: http://shop.gamesalute.com/products/compounded

    I love the Periodic Table bracelets, not that I’m a nerd.
