Game of the Week

The game of the week is Pentaquark!

Some of the biggest questions in the world of science may be answered by studying quarks, the smallest of particles. The problem with trying to study quarks is that you can’t find just one quark; you need to find them in groups called hadrons, or some other exotic particles, like the Pentaquark.

In Pentaquark, you are trying to give science a helping hand by collecting the 5 quarks that form this particle at the detector of a massive particle collider. Move cards you need to the detector, discard others so they may come back as anti-quarks, and try to minimize the number of quarks scattered and lost. If too many cards are removed from the game, the Pentaquark has slipped through undetected once again!

Looking to add some science and some solitaire gaming to your home experience? Pentaquark has got the fun you’ve been looking for. Before Sprawlopolis came along, this was widely regarded as the best solo game in the Button Shy catalog. And rumor has it that this still holds up, even with all the other excellent games in there. If you missed their Reprint Kickstarter, or are waiting for your copy to arrive, now is the perfect time to try out Pentaquark. But if you decide you like it, be sure to act quickly on ordering a copy because this was hard-to-find for a long time and you won’t want to miss it again. But at least you’d have this nice PNP copy to keep you entertained.
