Complexity

Manage your body's machinery in an extraordinary quest for health on a deserted tropical island.

Our bodies are utterly complex machines; from the control center to the waste disposal network, all systems unite to keep us going. We seldom give this much thought as we merely have to provide fuel and comforts. That, however, is about to change.

Last night during a frightening storm at sea, our boat washed up on a deserted tropical island. Chances for survival are slim. Our food supplies will last only one day, and the island crawls with danger. We must collect system parts, conquer obstacles, answer wisely, and keep close tabs on our Health chips and Calories. In the end, the castaway with the best health will be victorious.

Complexity is an award-winning educational board game that offers a unique window into the fascinating machinery of life. Though the content may be challenging, the gameplay is easy and engaging. Color-coded body systems, mnemonic clues, physical challenges, and thought-provoking questions all contribute to an unforgettable and fun-filled journey.

While winning is a delightful reward, the real prize is a deeper understanding of how your incredible body functions. This board game will lay a foundation (mind map) for future anatomy and physiology studies and impact your choices regarding diet, fitness, and health. But regardless of whether you need inspiration or soaring test scores, a grand adventure awaits when you embark on the curious Health Quest of Complexity. Wise castaways, however, may first play the Battle of the Body Systems to learn the lay of the land.
