PHYLO TCG: Genetics Society of America Starter Deck

This deck, hosted by the Genetics Society of America, is the first STARTER deck that utilizes a new hand building game mechanic.

- - -

PHYLO is a project that began as a reaction to the following nugget of information: Kids know more about Pokemon creatures than they do about real creatures.

PHYLO is also: (1) a card game that makes use of the wonderful, complex, and inspiring things that inform the notion of biodiversity; (2) an exercise in crowd sourcing, open access, and open game development; and (3) FREAKIN’ AWESOME!
