Master new galaxies as you learn about quantum computing

Welcome to the Quantum Universe, Captain!

Congratulations, your captain has retired and left you in charge of his galactic shipping business! Now it’s time to make some upgrades as you embark on a journey to reconstruct a quantum computer developed by an ancient race.

Entanglion is a cooperative board game designed for two players. Learn about quantum computing as you work together with your teammate to navigate the three galaxies of the quantum universe, avoid detection by the defense mechanisms left behind by the ancients, and rebuild the quantum computer.

Think you’re up for the challenge?

About Entanglion

Entanglion was designed at IBM Research to expose players to several fundamental concepts in quantum computing, including qubits, superposition, entanglement, measurement, and error. Entanglion also exposes players to the different kinds of hardware and software components involved in building a real quantum computer.

  • This game contains a premium upgrade called UV Coating that makes the printed components more durable.
  • This game contains laser cut components. Laser cut items will have a slight amount of soot around the edges, which can easily be wiped off; and will have a campfire smell for about a week after you open them.
