Valence Plus Chemistry Card Game

Make learning fun and exciting with Valence Plus Chemistry Card Game by Science Ninjas. Easy to learn and play, this game has simple rules to turn you into a total smarty pants. Players draw element cards with different valence numbers and add them up to zero to make molecules. Make enough molecules and you win the game! But, some molecules react with others so you can use acid attacks to break down opponents’ bases into less valuable salt and water molecules. The game has a great visual appeal with super cool “Science Ninjas” on every card to entice players intimidated by a chemistry game. Designed by two PhDs and a NYTimes best-selling cartoonist, Valence Plus is fun and interactive. The more you play, the more you learn about chemistry – studies show players don’t just learn, they retain the knowledge. Kids of all ages will love it. Be a chemistry ninja!

@Peggy, you never got your game? There've been a few mixups with some Canadian deliveries - I'll make sure it goes out tomorrow!
Peggy Turko
Wondering if anyone in Canada has got the game?
Nathan Schreiber
@Adam just sent you a message
Adam Fawcett
Just checking to see if any Other Australian backers have received anything yet? Nothing come thru yet at my end. Cheers Adam...

Hi guys, anyone else here in Iceland? I haven´t received anything, nor shipping notice, so I´m getting a bit worried.
I haven't received my game yet (Hungary) =/ I hope it will arrive soon...! I can't wait for it~
Received mine here in the UK. Makes a great package, product and campaign put together really well. Thanks to all involved!
Michael Baxter
Game arrived yesterday, great box, contents all there and meeting the delivery estimate. That's how you run a Kickstarter! Very chuffed :)

Benjamin Chua

Nathan Schreiber
Sorry to get you excited Benjamin, that's just the T-shirt! They're going out over the next week!
Benjamin Chua

Robert they are pre-shrunk cotton - I'd go with a large, but that's me!
Robert Martin
Do the t-shirts run big? And how much do they shrink? I'm in between a medium and large and just trying to figure out the best fit.
Nathan Schreiber
Sure James! Just sent you a message!
James McAdams
Is it possible to add a shirt after the fact? I meant to before the campaign ended, but my time management skills aren't too great. :-)
Nathan Schreiber
Great Richard! sounds awesome. Schrama, I'll send you a message about translations.
richard kleingeld
Super excited about playing this with my classes all the way in New Zealand! (and making all my friends learn some chemistry!)
To Schrama
I would also like to translate this into Dutch! Would make it a lot more usefull for my classes.
Yoshihito Fukuda
Thanks so much!
I will check a message.
Nathan Schreiber
Hi Yoshihito! I just sent you a message.
Yoshihito Fukuda
Isn't there PnP data?
I will translate this game into Japanese and play.
It is very helpful to get PnP data.
Nathan Schreiber
Michaël, if you'd like to change your pledge or work out some sort of different reward just send me a message and we'll work something out. Hope this is helpful!
Michaël Desêtres
I mean a way to upgrade the pledges after the end of the campaign and possibly to choose extra products.
Boardgame kickstarter campaign often use this kind of system but I've seen few ones where the end of the campaign was really the end with no way to change anything.
Nathan Schreiber
Michaël, I have to confess I'm not entirely sure what you mean. Are you talking about the website pledge manager? We fulfilled all of our orders last time without it; what specific feature are you seeking? When backers have special requests, I usually start a one-on-one dialogue with them. Doesn't look like we'll crack 500 backers this time so it seems pretty manageable.
Michaël Desêtres
will there be a pledge manager at the end of the campaign ?
Thanks for your answer.
Nathan Schreiber
David, I'll make sure you get one!
Nathan Schreiber
I know Josh, we're almost there!!
David Lydle
I want a shirt. Is 3xl an option?
Josh DuJordan
Awesome idea! Gah, it's so close!
Nathan Schreiber
Thanks Chuy and Giancarlo, we're almost there!
Chuy Hardy
Great idea, can't wait to play
Giancarlo Barassi
Honestly... the world is doomed if this game doesnt get more than 50k. Awesome game by the way.
Nathan Schreiber
Thanks Sandra!
Sandra Gwilliam
Nathan, I just saw (and commented on) the YouTube video explaining how to play Valence Plus! The game looks like one our family will enjoy playing. Thanks for making chemistry fun and easy to understand. The website is great, too!
Only a bit more. :)
Nathan Schreiber
ah, I reached out to most of them but they all said that they couldn't review the game before the Kickstarter is over. I'll send them copies when we go into production (fingers crossed)!
Daniel Cassidy
How're those third party reviews coming did anyone of the reviews play the last version of the game.
Nathan Schreiber
Thanks Daniel!
Daniel Cassidy
Almost there, love all the detail your adding to the game.
I was just looking for something like this. :)
Nathan Schreiber
Sandra, I should've included more early bird specials! I didn't anticipate the demand, they were gone in 15 minutes! Thanks, I'm so glad you're a backer again!
Sandra Gwilliam
Nathan, I am sad that I didn't see the email in time to get the early bird price, but I am happy we can support the Science Ninjas on this new Valance game! Your games and website make learning science exciting and fun!
Nathan Schreiber
Daniel I'll see what I can do!
Daniel Cassidy
Will we see any third party reviews from the established you tube board game reviewer
Nathan Schreiber
Thanks Daniel! We certainly think so!
Nathan Schreiber
Adam - yeah that sounds great, just one early bird per customer though! Send me a message to remind me for when fulfillment comes!
