Compounded is a game about building chemical compounds through careful management of elements, a fair bit of social play and trading, and just a bit of luck. In Compounded, players take on the roles of lab managers, hastily competing to complete the most compounds before they are completed by others – or destroyed in an explosion. Some compounds are flammable and will grow more and more volatile over time; take too long to gather the necessary elements for those compounds and a lot of hard work will soon be scattered across the lab. Although Compounded does involve a fair share of press-your-luck tension and certainly some strategic planning, the most successful scientists will often be those who strike a good trade with their fellow lab mates. Players are able to freely trade elements, laboratory tools, and even favors – if there is truly honor among chemists!
The new Compounded: The Peer-Reviewed Edition offers not only an upgrade in components, but a complete reworking of the rules to offer better gameplay. Faster, easier, and able to eke out a win with just the right strategic scoring as the final count is tallied, Compounded: The Peer-Reviewed Edition offers an all new way to have fun in the lab!
