The game is a dream come true for burgeoning megalomaniacs! 2-4 “scientists” vie for access to the building blocks of mad science, such as Lasers, Dark Matter, Cryptomium, and Sharks, from the appropriately named Mad Science Foundation. Using these precious resources, players must create outlandish inventions (complete with big red buttons!) that will allow them to glorify their own crazy genius. The winner is the one who achieves the most infamy!

Gameplay unfolds using a unique “I cut, you choose” mechanic. During each round, a player takes on the role of the Crooked Director, dividing resources for inventions into several piles. Piles are not created equally, with the Director player strategizing about what the others need and trying to keep those resources away from them. Each scientist then chooses a pile of resources, with the Director picking last. As play progresses, scientists use their resources to construct and activate devious inventions that can bring the world to its knees, including a Laser-Guided Sharkapult, Lunar Laser Cannon, or a Needlessly Complicated Booby Trap. In addition, Minions of various abilities can be recruited to aid a scientist’s nefarious cause, one round at a time. Scientists even have hidden objectives that are not revealed until the very end of the game.

In Mad Science Foundation, players use manipulation, backstabbing, and plain old evil to gain the infamy needed to become the greatest (or is that the worst?) mad scientist the world has ever seen!
