Diamond – the Game

'Diamond the Game - Print and Play' is a board game for 2-5 players and takes 20-30 minutes. You and your family and friends take the role of researchers at the Diamond Light Source, where a huge scientific machine, called a synchrotron, helps scientists make scientific discoveries.

Skill Level:

There are two versions of Diamond the Game Print and Play, which are both for 2-5 players and last between 20-30 minutes:

  • The 10+ version is the full version of the game, covering all sorts of science at Diamond, including work on historical artefacts, infectious diseases and how life could exist on other planets!
  • The 5+ version is a more compact and simplified version of the game, with relevant content for 5 year olds.

The game takes only a short time to play, and even less time to learn.
