Game of the Week - Pentaquark

Game of the Week - Pentaquark

Every year, millions of Americans are afflicted with a terrible condition: the Back to work Blues. As you may be aware, the Tuesday after Labor Day is often especially devastating, as we all say goodbye to summer. Never fear! We here at Button Shy have something to cheer you up.

Introducing: Button Shy’s Game of the Week

Each week we will feature a different wallet game here on the site, and you can snag a copy for 33% off! Our first Game of the Week is Pentaquark, or first solo wallet game. It launched a year ago this week, and went on to become one of our highest funded games.

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!

Pentaquark is a single player game designed by Mike Mullins with art by Fabrice Weiss. Gameplay lasts 15-30 minutes (you will immediately want to play again) and recommended for ages 12 and up.
